The right knowledge delivered at the right time can often provide a huge dividend in terms of bringing a business deal to fruition. The Southwest Detroit Business Association offers real estate information and referral services to investors looking to bring new businesses into the community. The group helps those who want to expand their businesses, find a new location, or secure technical assistance for a new venture.
In addition, the SDBA provides direct assistance to existing and new business owners with site plan reviews, permitting, zoning, and the historic district review process. Helping coordinate meetings between business and residents is another SDBA service. Through membership in the organization, individual businesses can market themselves to a built-in audience of some 1,700 fellow businesses and over 100,000 residents.
