We have 28 mini storage sheds in Miles, 4 hours out of Brisbane, that we have on the market for sale.
Could someone please let me know the best newspaper in Brisbane to advertise them in as I feel that our Real Estate Agent is not pushing them enough and we need to take matters into our own hands.

Financial review advertises a lot of commercial property.
But do not discount the internet as a source of advertisement

You may need to ensure that there is no exclusivity clause that you would be breaching with your agent – you may be up for the commission even though you did all of the work.fingerscrossedParticipant@fingerscrossedJoin Date: 2005Post Count: 81
I saw these in Real Estate.com but only in the land for sale area.
Perhaps they could advertise in the property for sale area as well.
there is also a realestate.com commercial propery for sale site as well.
i would send you the link but am in a hurry to get to work
what is the occupancy rate of these sheds ?
Thanks for the info Debbie.
We have a really slack agent and haven't signed anything with him for the sale of them.
I have asked numerous times as to the cost of advertising in the Commercial section but he's been very slack in finding out the info. We are in a tricky situation whereas he is the only agent in town that can collect the rent on our behalf and we don't want to hassle him too much as he could turn around and say he doesn't want to do that any more and we are just too far away to handle it effectively. Mind you, we haven't made it a priority either. The local newsagency could collect the rent for us.
It's been cruising along nicely at around 75% occupancy. It's in a cashflow positive position which is great. Pete and I would be happy to keep them however we are in a joint venture with another couple and they want out.
The mining industry is set to boom in the area and there is enough room to build another 6 sheds as well.
I must put some time aside to really get serious about it.
Thanks everyone for your inputs.

Legally, a real estate agent cannot work on your behalf without an agency agreement. That is, they have no right to payment as they don't have an agreement with you or have accepted your instructions.
You should check out whether the newsagent holds a licence as an re agent as unless they are licensed and run an RE trust fund they would be unable to undertake the work.fingerscrossedParticipant@fingerscrossedJoin Date: 2005Post Count: 81
Hi again jackie
Could you use and agent from Chinchilla to manage your sheds ?
We have been looking closley at the area and have decided to invest in Chinchilla. The agents i have spoken to there have been very helpful (as you would expect).
Jess Wagner from National comes highly recommended by some locals.
