Boise Valley Retail Space Available For Lease

Are you planning to rent or lease retail space in the greater Boise Valley for your business? It is not always easy trying to find the ideal retail space, and there are a lot of options available such as, general retail, free standing retail, regional malls, specialty centers, community centers, and many more. It is essential to find a retail space that you’re your business needs, and remember, a store can become the foundation for the future development of your business.

Finding a good retail space in the Boise Valley can be easy if you follow these simple steps:

  • Find out why the previous tenant left the space. If the previous tenant has left the space for the lack of customers, then you might face the same problem. Also, check the transport system near the retail location. If the customers can’t commute to your store then it’s certainly not a good place to invest.
  • Study your target audience carefully. Study their requirements. Do they live near the office space you are planning to buy? Where do they go to shop? Studying these points carefully will help you to know the psychology of your customers. Also, if you see that there are no residential areas nearby, don’t buy the space. You can search in the census bureau or chamber of commerce to find the most suitable place for your business.
  • Before you buy retail space in commercial area you should study your competitors’ location. Make sure that you’re not going to face losses due to a rival store that is near to you. It is no use opening a retail store in a place that has a large number of competitors. It would take a long time for you to establish yourself in the market.
  • Check out all the costs while leasing a retail space. Do you have to pay for the maintenance and repairs? How much do you have to pay to decorate the retail space? Some landlords may ask you to pay a percentage of your sales along with your rental fee. It’s better to know all these details before you make the investment. A cheaper deal may sound attractive to you but that doesn’t mean it is the best decision until you have all of the facts.

Leasing vs Buying Commercial Office Space?

Many businesses reach a point in which they are curious as to whether it would be beneficial for them to purchase a building rather than continue to lease space. While every business is different there are a few common factors that should be taken into consideration when evaluating whether buying a building space would be better than continuing to lease space. We will take a look at some of the pros and cons to purchasing compared to continuing to lease space.

* Cash Outlay – Typically if you are planning to purchase a building, you can expect to make a down payment of between 10% and 25% of the purchase price, depending on the lender and your credit. When you lease space you won’t need to put down nearly as much. With good credit, the typical outlay is the first and last months rent which is only about 10% to 15% of the cash outlay required when purchasing a building.
* Opportunity Cost – With the large outlay of cash required to purchase a building, the opportunity cost of that money needs to be taken into consideration. What return would you expect to receive on that money compared to the return you would expect to receive if you invested the money back into your business or into other investments?
* Fixed vs. Variable Cost – When you buy a building, you have a good idea what your costs will be over the long term. This is especially true if you have a long term fixed rate mortgage. If you lease space, the market will dictate what you will end up paying for rent over the long run.
* Growth Considerations – The growth phase of your business should be a major consideration in making the lease vs. buy decision. If your company is relatively new and/or in a high growth mode, leasing would allow more flexibility and fewer constraints to that growth. On the other hand, if your company is mature and stable, buying space is great way to meet your future space needs.
* Property Management – You’ve heard the expression, time is money. If you own a building, it needs to be managed. You can either hire out the function or do it yourself. Many businesses with long term growth plans buy a larger building than they need and rent out the expansion space. All the more need for good property management.
* Appreciation – One of the primary goals of buying a building space is to generate long term increase in value through market appreciation. A good idea in a healthy market and usually successful over the long term. It is usually a good way to add to your retirement fund, but keep in mind that recent commercial real estate cycles have come in 10 year periods.
* Tax Factors – Lease payments are usually fully deductible, but many expenses of owning office space must be written off over longer periods of time of up to 39 years. The good news if you buy is that you get to take depreciation on the improvement portion of the property and can usually deduct all of your interest payments. When considering the tax factors it is always very important to consult with your attorney and tax professional about the legal and financial considerations to owning office space.
* Cash Flow Analysis – The devils in the details. In order to really understand the financial aspect of purchasing a building, you need to prepare a detailed comparative net present value cash flow analysis which takes into consideration your predictions on the future including holding period, anticipated appreciation vs. rental increase, interest rates, and cost of expenses increases. It is a good idea to do three different analyses, optimistic, realistic and pessimistic, to help determine your margin of error. It seems like a daunting task, but there some good programs available to help you do this analysis including:

The Next Step

While the evaluation of the leasing vs. buying space decision seems somewhat overwhelming, there is help. Getting advice and assistance from a commercial real estate professional who is involved in the business day in and day out can significantly improve not only the accuracy of any analysis, but in general simplify the process. Many of the lease vs. buy factors can only be decided by you, but having a helping hand in the areas where space expertise is important will assure you of making the best possible decision.

Leasing Industrial Spaces in the Boise Valley

If you need large storage facilities, or a place to set up large-scale production, manufacturing, or a shipping depot, the cheapest type of space to rent is usually industrial space. But commercial industrial spaces can also be used in place of traditional commercial offices, usually at substantially cheaper prices per square foot.

There are many advantages to leasing commercial industrial spaces in the Boise Valley. Some of the benefits include:

  • Affordable, Flexible Leases: Large industrial space are usually less expensive to rent than finished commercial office space or established retail spaces. And, since industrial spaces are often used for a variety of purposes, leasing agents can be flexible when negotiating the terms of industrial space leases.
  • Cheaper to Renovate Than to Purchase a Building: If you need custom-designed facilities, but cannot afford to purchase and renovate your own building, most industrial complexes allow tenants to build-out, modify, or substantially renovate warehouses into custom office, production, or even retail facilities.
  • Flexible Zoning Options: Because industrial parks tend to be very flexible in terms of zoning, it may be easier to convert industrial spaces into manufacturing and retail businesses than existing buildings in areas zoned for other specific business purposes.
  • Add Usable Square Feet Without Increasing Rent: Since most large industrial spaces have high ceilings, many can accommodate a mezzanine or be split into two internal stories. Depending on how much you spend to add this space, you can add to your usable square footage without increasing your monthly rent.

The most important thing when considering any leased space is to look at as many spaces as possible before making your decision. By including commercial industrial space on your list of leasing options, you may just find larger, more affordable space to grow your business.

How to Lease Commercial Real Estate Office, Retail, or Industrial Space

A lease, at its core, is a business relationship – an agreement between a tenant and a landlord. Although leasing commercial real estate may appear simplistic, perhaps even one-dimensional, it is crucial to take 7 essential steps. Otherwise, the process can turn into disarray.

1. Define your requirements: The first questions to tackle are as follow: “What am I looking for?” and “What would suit me best?” From prerequisites such as deciding location to determining the property’s prospective use, evaluating the space is critical.

2. Locate suitable property: After determining space requirements, a hands-on search begins. Locate suitable properties, survey the market, and narrow down the CRE contestants.

3. Tour properties: A property review and physical tour is the next step of commercial leasing. Since an expected lessee engages in numerous visits and tours, it would be beneficial to take notes on each property.

4.  Make a proposal to lease: The proposal process consists of five elements: preparing a RFP (request for proposal), issuing the RFP to suitable properties, reviewing the landlords’ responses, evaluating offers, and perhaps preparing a Comparative Lease Analysis.

5. Space planning and architectural evaluation
6.  Negotiate the lease contract: Negotiating may be tedious and frustrating. It is important to meticulously examine every aspect of the deal to avoid future problems. A checklist, legal involvement, and realization of tenant’s resources are discussed thoroughly in this category.

7.  Close the transaction The mutual execution of a lease.
