Opening Wisconsin Commercial Real Estate - Guidance Documents and Resources UPDATED
Commercial Real Estate has been deemed essential business in the State of Wisconsin and is able to operate safely while the Governor's Safer at Home order is in effect. Even after the order concludes, there will be great caution in reopening businesses. Commercial practitioners have uniquely close contact with owners and tenants and are integral in the transaction ensuring that safety guidelines from federal and state officials and individual building owners are adhered to, as well as endearing the trust of tenants and buyers. This is a tremendous responsibility. There will not be a one-size fits all approach for various asset classes (industrial, office, retail, multifamily), however, as a trusted advisor, the broker has a duty to ensure that they are projecting the highest safety standards.
