SHOPS: What to look for?

12-9-19  By Larry Coelho

Acreage properties will frequently feature a shop. The challenge for the buyer is to determine the shop’s value.

Generally, shops come in two types: stick build-which is constructed like a house and frequently roofed, sided and painted to match the existing buildings on the property. Or, metal buildings constructed out of metal siding and metal roofing material-often these structures are not insulated, and they may have dirt floors.

Questions to ask when looking for in a shop:

Does the building have a concrete floor?

Does it have electricity?

Does it have 220 power? How about 3 phase power?

Running hot and cold water?

Does it have a bathroom?

Is the shop heated?

Is there overhead lighting? Parking?
