With a little extra time and effort, you can be assured of finding a great office location from The Sundance Company in the Treasure Valley that will serve your business well for years to come. With numerous office space locations in Boise or Meridian, Idaho, consider these tips to help you find the perfect spot.
- Consider What You Need: You would think this would go without saying, but it is amazing how many business owners leap into an office contract after being mesmerized by the fancy foyer or the many amenities. Write down exactly what you need and take that list with you when you tour available spaces. If you have 10 employees, don’t rent space for 100. Unless you have concrete plans to expand to a larger or different operation in the future, rent only for your current needs. And don’t let yourself be talked into something you really don’t need. Nothing good can come of trying to fit a square peg in a round hole when it comes to office space.
- Make a Budget: Don’t over-extend yourself with a huge rental payment when you are considering the office space that is right for your business. Office space for rent can make or break your budget. Find an adequate space that is affordable and that fits well within your budget. You don’t want to over-extend yourself, and you can always upgrade later. And don’t forget to read the fine print. What costs and utilities are you expected to cover? Are there any hidden fees in the contract?
- Plan for the Future: While you don’t want to agree to an office space rental agreement based upon hazy future plans, you do want to be prepared for changes you might need to make later on down the road as your business grows and expenses. Does your rental agreement allow you to remodel the office space or expand into empty, adjacent space? What if you need to terminate the agreement or want to upgrade to a larger office? Can that be done under your agreement or would hefty fees be involved to re-negotiate the lease? Work out those details now as you plan for the future of your business, and save headaches later for a great experience as you search for office space for rent.
Use these tips to find the right property for your business in the Treasure Valley. Then rest secure in the knowledge that you have made a smart business decision that will serve you well for years to come.
