So, you’re just starting a business in the Treasure Valley, and you’re finding yourself overwhelmed with the task of locating an office that will accommodate your needs without breaking your budget. Choosing office space can be complicated, because you’re counting on the amount of business you do to offset the costs of leasing the space and staffing it with employees. No matter which type of space you choose for your business, there are some considerations that you should always keep in mind on your quest to lease office space.
When you set out to find office space such as the Blackeagle Center in Boise or the Silverstone Corporate Plaza in Meridian, Idaho, it is important that you make a list of the most important aspects of the space before you talk to a leasing agent or even make a phone call in response to one classified advertisement. Essential to this list is that you keep in the back of your mind exactly what you need, not what you want to function. These needs include the actual amount of space you need to function, not feel like a corporate executive; the communications access that you need to stay in touch with your clients on a regular basis, like internet and commercial telephone services, and last, but not least, the realistic amount of money you have to spend on an office.
When you are looking to lease an office, the amount of actual square footage you need depends greatly on the type of business you are hoping to run. If you’re going to be running a clothing store or design studio, you will need more space than someone who is developing and running a web site or a consultancy.
If you have considered all of the office space that is available for lease around your geographical location and have determined that nothing is very well suited to your needs or to your budget, you might want to consider a executive suite office instead. These are typically single suites that are available within a professional office building. The benefits of executive office space include professional receptionist services, access to conference rooms, internet and phone services, and, in most cases, spaces that are already furnished with chairs, desks, and filing cabinets.
