Choosing the Right Office Space

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.

I Want to Start My Own Business

I want to start my own business

There is real opportunity to start a business today because many, many businesses that existed prior to the recent recession have closed their doors and left wide range of  parts of market with little choice . Many long-standing client relationships have also disappeared. More than anything else right now, consumers and businesses want the lowest cost, period! This presents a great opportunity for entrepreneurs who want to position themselves in the marketplace as the lowest-cost provider.

But before your jump into this roller coaster ask yourself a few questions…

1.  What kind of business will I begin?

Do what you love to do.  Businesses don’t just happen. They are made. Most people do the mistake in opening a business they know nothing of.   Your success relies on what you bring to the business. If you love what you do then chances are your business will be successful.  Don’t be tempted to start a retail store just because you find a cute, affordable space.

2.    Where will I get the money to start my business?

Start up business funding and start up business grants are hard to come by. Ensuring you have the funds necessary to stay viable past the first few months, when business will be at its toughest, is extremely important.  If the only problem you have is a momentary lack of funds, and you have a decent credit rating, speak to your bank about a business loan.

3.  Do you know how to run a business?

Running a business takes different skills than practicing what you know or love.  If you don’t have an idea on how to run a business, then start today learning how to do it, or find a friend that has same knowledge on this and can give you some advice.

4.  Do I need a business plan?

Yes in fact many businesses that go under is because they didn’t have a business plan before they started.  Creating a real business plan is hard work and a pain. But it is hard work that will be rewarded. It forces you to think past rationalizations that we all tend to make and come up with something real and doable.

5.  Will my business need an office?

If you are on a tight budget and are unsure exactly how long it will take for profits to flow in at a strong level on a regular basis, consider starting a business with a home office.  New businesses die every day and many suffer a premature death simply because the new owner ran out of money.

Virtual Office for my Business

When you’re a new business start-up, or an entrepreneur with a great idea of starting your own business  but with limited resources, then the best way to start your idea, while still maintaining professional appearance to your clients, is to lease a virtual office.

The benefits of setting up a virtual office for a new business is apparent.  Not only do you save the company money in rent and rates , you achieve a appearance of professionalism and it gives you the freedom to work not just from home, but literally anywhere, meaning you can get out on the road and do some much needed prospecting.

A virtual office is like a traditional office it provides all those services that you expect from a real office without the cost of a traditional office.  Even the tiniest of offices can run several hundred dollars a month plus the cost of commute, the furniture and computers , and at least one telephone line the cost of doing business can become overwhelming.

Setting up a virtual office can seem a bit intimidating at first, but once you get the idea and get a feel of the benefits,  it’s really quite easy. With today’s technologies and the use of a virtual office, there really are no boundaries. With a virtual office you can spend more time with your family, work from almost anywhere, and your clients never need know you don’t have an office downtown, if you prefer them not to know.

Small is the way to start

Small Office for Lease

There are many opportunities for people that want to start their own business now than there was years ago.  During this economic stress landlords that didn’t consider pursuing smaller tenants are now looking to expand their business and are willing to take small tenants.

Large spaces that have now been divided into smaller ones are helping out those people who have thought of starting a new business but were afraid of the commitment to a large space.  The number of small spaces tenants can consider in their searches has increased.

Many people think that when you start a business, leasing office space is not a really important thing because you have that extra room in home you can now use as an office.  Yes, having your business run from your home can save you some money.  But is it really saving you money.

Many customers or clients seem to feel that a business with a permanent address other than someone’s home is less likely to be a flaky business, and more likely to be able to deliver on guarantees.  Which means some potential clients can change their mind about doing business with you.

Another consideration that you may want to think about, particularly if your business is mature, is that businesses with outside locations tend to be easier to sell and to bring higher prices. For one thing, the new owner doesn’t have to scout out a new location and go to the expense of moving; for another, customers and clients are already accustomed to visiting a particular office and can continue to patronize it despite the new ownership.
