Creating a Market Survey of Commercial Properties Listings in Kansas City

Creating and presenting a market survey can make it easy to compare potential office rental spaces to each other and to your stated objectives as determined by analyzing the needs of your business.  There are a few steps that might be helpful in performing and utilizing a market survey:

  • Know Market Conditions.  Market knowledge is one of the most important parts of the survey process.  Knowing general market conditions and the subtleties of submarkets can help ensure that a survey is thorough and accurate, which is why many tenants seek the help of a real estate broker for this stage of the process.
  • Organize and Present Market Survey Information.  It can be helpful to create a visual aid to map out the different pieces of market survey information.  You might use software programs, Microsoft Excel Templates, or even just Microsoft word to list and compare pieces of important data and informational items such as the class of building, rental rate, submarket, expense stop, building factor, parking ratio, property management, ownership, construction year, amenities, etc. along with data about the available space at each property and a section for any relevant comments.
  • Note the Location of Each Property on a Map.  You can use a map of the metropolitan area to mark the general location of each potential building, as well as make more detailed submarket maps that pinpoint the exact location of each potential building.

A comparison of market survey data for different spaces can help you determine which properties you would like to actually tour.

Environmental Site Assessments and Commercial Office Rental in Kansas City

Renting an office space for your business can involve some research and legwork to determine if the real estate you are considering is right for your business.  Not only do you consider your business’s specific needs, but you also want to look at more general factors, such as the environment of the site itself.  Here are a few questions and answers about this aspect of commercial property rental:

  1. What exactly is an environmental site assessment?  An environmental site assessment checks to determine whether real estate property is contaminated by any hazardous waste materials.  There are two different types of environmental site assessments, one more rigorous than the other.  A Phase I assessment involves simply a review of certain records and an inspection of the location, but no drilling, boring, or testing of land and water samples.  However, a Phase II assessment does include more intense measures such as drilling and testing and can cost a lot more.
  2. Do I need an environmental site assessment before I purchase commercial property?  Sometimes lenders require an assessment, and often it makes sense to get one in instances where you business deals in manufacturing or if you are purchasing a service station.  If these situations don’t apply to your case, it can be tempting not to get an assessment, but skipping this step could be a big liability to you if an environmental problem arises during your lease, even if the problem was not directly your fault.

Find Out About Flexibility When Renting Office Space in Kansas City

When choosing an office rental space, you will want to know how flexible the management of your office lease is going to be in accommodating your needs as a potential tenant.  You might want to ask yourself and the owners of the office space a few questions to see if they will be able to work with the particular needs of your business:

•    Do you want 24/7 access to your office, or are you fine with typical 9 a.m. to 5 p.m hours?
•    Do you need mail forwarding services for when you travel?
•    What is the office space’s policy on children?
•    Is it possible for you to stop by for only a few hours during the week to work?
•    Are the services and spaces scalable in the event that you need to expand because of future business growth?
•    Is the office space already configured, or can you design it according to your business’s needs?

Knowing the needs of your business and employees before you sign a lease can help you avoid unforeseen flexibility problems.  Ask yourself and your broker these questions to help you determine whether an office is a fit for you!
