Phase I ESAs Are Great For…

Real Estate Professionals and Investors

Whether you own a property development company and you’re considering building a block of apartments or you are a real estate agent who is looking to learn more about a piece of land for a client, knowing everything you can about a piece of property will always be in your best interest. Regardless of what type of work you do in the real estate industry, it just makes sense to know how the land has been used in the past.

Small Businesses

Owning a small business often means that you need to wear many hats. In some cases, you are the CEO, HR department, manager, hiring department, accountant, and shipment coordinator. In other words, you probably have quite a bit on your plate at any given time. If you are considering a new space for your business, it just makes sense to know everything you can about how it was used in the past. For example, if you are a small business owner who wants to open a restaurant, knowing that the building you are considering used to be a dry cleaning company who used harsh chemicals can save you a huge headache down the road.

Agricultural Operations

Agriculture means food for people all across our country. You depend on high quality fruits, vegetables, and livestock to help ensure that you can provide for your family. It only makes sense to know how the land you’ll be raising those things on has been used in the past because it is your livelihood–and the health of many people–that might be at stake. Growing foods on land that has previously been used as a gas station probably won’t work and it is, of course, a good piece of information to have before you commit to purchasing that land.
