Hi Dylan. What is the current zoning? Residential? What type of professional use do you currently use it for and/or what type of professional use is it zoned for is the bigger question? It's definitely an added bonus to someone looking for a home office or sometimes a dentist and/or chiropractor have their office at home. Talk to your realtor and see what their marketing strategy is and/or if you are interviewing agents, I'd love to sit down and talk to you. Good Luck!

Market it for the buyers that maybe have their own home based business. There are plenty of people out there in today's market that work out of their home. Have your agent check some of the sites that have professional's working out of their homes and post on those sites. Target marketing, once you identify the target then go and market it.

First of all is it zoned for an office on one side? If it is than say what the house has to offer...a home office. Call commercial agents or make a flyer to send to them. Offer a commission if they have someone. Why arent you using a realtor to begin with?
That person can help you tremendously.

Try sending postcards with the details of your home to smaller local office based businesses. We tried this approach once with a home like yours and were able to sell the home very quickly! Think outside of the box!

Dylan: Depending on the nature of the professional service you can focus your marketing efforts towards professionals in that field. There are new zoning rules that could impact or limit the ability to use for different profession. For example if the office space was used by a doctor, it may not be allowed for the space to be used by a CPA. You should consider contacting the zoning officer and ask about limitations or rules limiting the professional use. I have marketed and sold few properties with professional offices in the past. Not the easiest properties to sell. Please feel free to contact me at 973-275-3012.

This home should be marketed in all sectors that apply
Have a professional real estate agent in your area give his/her expert opinion of the worth and structure for best marketing position. The more viewers on the property, the higher chance of sale at the highest possible price. An agent from your immediate area will be best to determine this.

Actually you should have no problem it depends on professional office are you speaking about home office or where clients/ etc. enter your home. Many professionals seek home office usually won't purchase a home w/o one. You are more of upside !
