As an owner user, you need to consider the building as a "tool" to help your business succeed. One of the first questions is whether the price will fit within your budget parameters. Second, is your intended use allowed under the existing zoning of the municipality in which the property is located. Third, do the physical aspects of the property satisfy your business requiremnets (location, ceiling height, power, utilities, ingress and egress, space layout, etc). If the "tool" is not right for your business the cheapest facility can be the worst facility.
If for an investment, do the real numbers for the property match your investment parameters. Do not be mislead by "potential" or "proforma" numbers. There is usually a cost to go from "actual" to "potential" and this must be factored into the nvestment decision.
