Selecting a location for your business is a major decision, one that can be made even more difficult when you're faced with a variety of choices. Having an abundance of options does make finding the ideal piece of commercial real estate more likely, but you will need a deliberate approach and some professional assistance to help narrow down your choices.
3 Steps to Finding the Perfect Commercial Real Estate Location
1. Determine Your Priorities
Every business has different needs, according to the industry in which you operate. For instance, few things are as important for a retail shop as location, giving customers easy access to your store. However, if you're looking for an office for a consulting firm, location may not be as important as high-speed internet availability and a professional appearance. Figuring out what you need before you start looking will help make the search more manageable.
2. Set a Budget
The rent on your business location is a major expense, and overpaying can make turning a profit more difficult. Before scouting for commercial real estate locations, take the time to calculate the maximum amount your business can afford, either in rent or mortgage payments, and use that figure to narrow down potential candidates.
3. Hire a Real Estate Agent
Real estate agents know the area and may have contacts with property owners that give them access to unlisted properties. With their professional expertise, an agent can essentially do the search for you, taking the stress out of finding a new commercial real estate location.
