How we determine rental price

There are instances in which tenants still have a desire to move from a space, and this is where GCR&D becomes aggressive in turning over the space as quickly as possible to procure a new tenant. Working closely with each property owner, GCR&D researches the current rental market to determine the highest rental price that the market will bear. Efforts to lease the space to a new tenant begin prior to the current tenant vacating as this drastically reduces vacancy time even when a turnover is included.
