So you have narrowed down your search for Overland Park office space for lease and you are getting ready to seriously and consider and sign a lease. Before you go forward, make sure that you fully understand all of the details of what you are signing. Here are a few topics that you might want to discuss with a commercial real estate agent or a potential landlord before committing to a lease:
- Cost. A real estate agent or some careful research on your part can help you find out what the average lease costs in your area for a basis of comparison. Remember that areas that are high-traffic or more desirable for various reasons will cost more than areas that are less desirable. Be sure to find out not only what the cost per square foot is, but also other costs included in the final price, such as common area maintenance, property taxes, utilities, property insurance, or trash collection. You might also want to inquire about what the space itself includes—the “shell” (walls and concrete floors), or more than that?
- Traffic. Is your business one that relies heavily on foot traffic, as in the case of retail or restaurants? If so, you might want to ask about the traffic numbers in the property area you are considering. A business that is a destination will need to make sure the property has ample and convenient parking for customers. A good commercial real estate agent should be able to provide you with demographics, car counts, and any other necessary information.
These are just a few things to investigate before signing a lease to make sure you are getting the best deal on office space in Overland Park KS for your business (check out the next post for more)!
