Finding the perfect office space is a big deal and Van Nuys Offices wants to help! Because your business will have to live with it for the life of a lease, it is important to find the right space and the right lease term.
So, Van Nuys Offices wants to offer some insider tips to help guide your search for the perfect office space.
1. Do your research on the space before you tour and prepare some questions to ask during your viewing. Like what amenities are included? Is parking available? Are any amenities included?
2. Image of the area/building: The reputation of the local area can have a big impact on the way potential clients see your business. Your staff and visitors will feel safer visiting your office if the area has a good reputation.
3. Access at night and weekend: If your staff needs to access the building outside of normal office hours, how easy it is for them to do so. Is there 24 hour access and security? Will you need to implement any extra security measures?
4. Lease terms; length and breaks: How long will the lease be for? If my business doesn’t succeed will there be any penalty if I break the lease? If the office I rented is too small will I be able to move to a bigger office?

Finding the perfect office, in the perfect location, can have a huge impact on your business. With the average length of a commercial property lease at 5-10 years, finding the perfect space is crucial; nobody wants to be stuck in the wrong office for any amount of time, let alone 10 years!
The right office space can make or break a business. It’s not easy to find the perfect premises, especially if your experience is limited. The key factor is to take the time and don’t settle for the first one you think is perfect. Because remember, your business will have to live with it for the life of a lease.
Give yourself some time don’t rush into a lease. Though the economy is in a state that there are plenty of office spaces around, you’ll still find that the perfect office space is hard to find. But, due to the recession, landlords now have cut their lease lengths to at least a year. Making things much easier for you.
The best thing to do when you think you have found the perfect place is to determine how much space you really need. Once you have calculated this , you want to evaluate how much space you will need to expand once your business becomes successful and can hold more people. Paying too much for an office space could affect profits; paying a small amount for inefficient space is also a waste of money.
