Which Sarasota doctor gets the best lease renewal on medical office space?

Doctor Consider the two following scenarios and decide who ultimately gets the better rate when it comes to renewing their medical office lease:


Scenario 1: Doctor A’s lease is about to expire in 3 months and their landlord contacts them to renew the lease. The Landlord provides them with a renewal rate and after a couple emails and phone calls back and forth, they settle on a renewal rate and term that both seem to be happy with. It’s not much more than they have been paying for the past few years and maybe even a little less, if the physician is lucky.

Scenario 2: Doctor B’s lease in the same building is not due to expire for another 8 months and decides to engage a real estate broker who focuses on medical office space in the area. The broker reviews and evaluates their current lease and searches the market for competitive space to evaluate other options. Even though there may be no intent to relocate, the broker gets two other outside landlords to provide competitive bids. The broker then contacts the current landlord to discuss renewal terms and using knowledge of the local healthcare real estate market, specifice needs of physicians and the competitive bids from landlords eager to fill vacant space, negotiates a renewal term and rate for Physician B. All the while, Physician B if focusing on serving his/her patients, running their practice and the fee for their qualified healthcare real estate broker is being paid by their landlord.
