Hello Praks- There are many questions here. Yes, the type of business is critical to determine the kind of property. Do you need OH doors, like a warehouse building? Do you need it to be streetfront? Do you need or want "walk-in" traffic? Retail or not?
Many times when you buy or lease something you will also have to spend some $$ in fitting the building to your exact use. Often called a tenant fit-up.
Check out http://www.loopnet.com where you can do some initial searches for free, but you have to register there. If you need any other help with this, please let me know. Thanks and good luck,
Ken L.

PS- Your "group"- is it an LLC or some kind of corporation? If not, you probably won't be able to get a commercial mortgage on this place- assuming you need financing...

It depends on part what type of Commercial. Is it Industrial, manufacturing etc.. Do you need drive in bays, are you looking for a build out or to do it yourself. Given your size requirement you may need to expand the geographic location a little bit. I am a member of CoStar the largest Commercial MLS site used by Commercial Realtors. You will need to work with someone who has this access as most of these properties are not attainable on our Residential MLS system. If you would like me to do a search for you please call me at 508-277-2032 or email me at mdmrealty@msn.com
