Since I was down in Los Angeles for the weekend, I thought that it would be a great opportunity to look at some commercial real estate investment properties.  I had always thought that LA would be a great market to invest in, but I had never found the “right” property.  Since I was going to be in the area, I did some quick calculations to create a short list of properties to look at.

While the properties on my list looked like winners on paper, they were another story when I took a look at them in-person.  All but one of them were not worth investing in, and the one that showed some potential had a big issue with it – the windows on the front of the store were broken and unsafe.

I decided that before I threw in the towel and walk away from this property that I would consult with a company that specialized in store front commercial windows and doors in Los Angeles.  I knew that they would be able to give me a better idea as to how much they would cost to replace before I even considered putting an offer in on the property.

The folks from Intex Windows and Doors were able to give me a quote within an hour of my call and I was really happy with their customer service.  With their quote in-hand, I decided that it made sense to place an offer for the property today.

I can’t wait to find out if my offer was accepted.
