No matter what industry you’re in, the right office space will pave the way to success. You’ll see a lot of options as you look into commercial real estate spaces, which can make it tough to start sifting through them. Use the below tips to target your search and find the perfect place for your company’s needs.
A Guide to Finding Good Commercial Real Estate
1. Determine Your Space Requirements
Narrow your search based on square footage; this will cut out spaces that are too large or small. As a rule of thumb, you should have 1,000 square feet for every six employees. However, you may want to adjust this based on your unique needs. For example, if you have a lot of supplies to store, you’ll need extra space.
2. Find the Right Landlord
If you are leasing commercial real estate, your landlord can make or break your experience. Look for one who will allow you to adjust the space, responds promptly to any requests, and prioritizes building maintenance. Before signing, look up the property management company’s reputation online, and ask other tenants in the building about their experiences. When meeting with the landlord, keep an eye out for red flags like generalized answers, an unusually high security deposit, or a price that’s too good to be true.
3. Consider Your Employees’ Needs
If your team is happy, they’ll be more productive, and it’ll be easier to retain talent. To meet their needs, choose a convenient location that will give them an easy commute; for example, choose an office space that’s not far from a freeway or easily accessible by public transit. Amenities such as parking, a kitchen, and a break room will also help maintain morale in the office.
