My First Commerical Property!

East Broadway, South Boston, MA

In 2014 I owned a business in Southie, and the lease was ending.  I needed a new home for the business, and I was running out of time.  I located a building on 709 East Broadway in Southie that was a perfect spot for the new business.  I only needed the commercial space, but the whole building was for sale.  The owners operated their family business for years in the space, so it was a natural fit. 

I moved the business into the space in July 2014 and then a few years later the space was transformed into a neighborhood restaurant.  In commercial real estate, it’s a different ball of wax than a residential property.  There are different lease types such as NNN, Gross lease, Percentage lease.  There are also different things that the tenant is responsible for with a commercial building vs. residential.  I enjoy learning about the type of real estate as it is fascinating!
