If you are looking to sell your commercial property quickly, you may need to consider something other than how the building itself looks and functions. Most commercial property buyers are looking for more than a great building. They want it all, including amazing curb appeal.
New Asphalt Improves Curb Appeal
One of the easiest ways that you can improve your curb appeal is to improve the look of your parking lot. The first thing that you can do is make sure that your parking lot is clean of all dirt and debris. This can be done by hand with a broom, but it usually works better and is less work when you use a street sweeping machine. The asphalt should look much nicer after removing everything, and then you will know what additional steps you should take to quickly make a sale.
Asphalt Crack Repair
Most of the time, you will need to fill the cracks that have been forming in your asphalt. This is easy to do and will instantly improve the value of your property. Of course, those cracks may have turned into potholes over time and it will be necessary to repair those as well. Those are a little more difficult to do as you will want to make sure that there is no damage underneath the asphalt that will undo all your work.
Seal and Protect the Asphalt
Once all the repairs have been made to your asphalt, it is time to apply a nice sealcoat to the entire thing. This application will make your parking lot look brand-new, especially if you took the time to repair the small cracks like we recommend. Adding freshly painted lines after the sealcoating has dried is a great way to put a finishing touch on your new parking lot.
New Pavement Means Money Spent Elsewhere
This may seem like a lot of work when you are selling your commercial property, but a parking lot is a feature that can attract or detract potential buyers. No buyer is going to want to spend their money repairing a parking lot, because they would rather use that money to make improvements to the building they are purchasing.
