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?
