Millennium Properties can also help you negotiate lease renewals with your existing tenants, helping you maximize occupancy in your building and generate income. Strong retention creates a more desirable property for potential new tenants as well a higher valuation in the long-run. Losing a tenant is a costlier event than most owners realize, so Millennium’s professionals will help you calculate the full costs of a potential move-out including:

  • Marketing and leasing costs – lack of rent, signage, promotion as well as commissions­
  • Construction costs – demolition of existing build-out, labor, and materials
  • Tenant incentives – free rent, moving costs, and tenant improvements
  • New Signage – inside and outside of the property

With these costs in mind, our brokers will help you negotiate the best deal for your property to help you generate solid financial results for the near and long-term.
