What to look for when conducting due diligence

Individuals who are looking to purchase commercial real estate in Texas or elsewhere will generally do due diligence prior to closing on a deal. This makes it possible to look into the property, the seller and how the deal will be financed to ensure that the buyer is closing a deal that is in his or her best interest. The due diligence period can be as long or as short as the buyer and seller want it to be.
