What Type of Kansas City Office Space Location is Best for Your Business?

In order to find a profitable location for your business, you will want to consider the various factors that will increase customer traffic to your location.  Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you are considering what type of location would be best for your business:

  • Will customers be walking in?  It is important to distinguish between foot and automobile traffic.  For example, if you are opening a coffee shop in the city, you might depend on nearby pedestrian traffic for business.
  • Will customers be driving to our location, and if so, is there parking available?  For example, if you are opening an auto repair shop, you might want to locate on a well-travelled street where your business will be noticed by drivers.
  • Will the reputation of a particular area or building help draw more customers?
  • Will we draw more customers in a space near other similar businesses?  A woman’s clothing shop might do well near other clothing stores, since people shopping for clothes tend to spend some time browsing multiple stores in a particular area.

Finding the perfect location varies from business to business.  Be sure to take some time to consider the habits of the customers you are interested in before choosing a location.

Financing Sources for Commercial Realty in Kansas City

Businesses can look to a few different types of sources to fund their executive office rental in Overland Park: mortgage banking firms, regional banks, savings and loan institutions, private investors, and insurance companies.  Financing for commercial real estate can involve very different terms, and the way deals are formulated is based on a few different factors:

  • Anticipated property use
  • Expected returns from the property
  • Type of real estate
  • Geography
  • Size of the real estate
  • Market risk conditions
  • Possible risk to the lender

A business owner should examine each of these areas carefully before looking for commercial real estate financing. It is also important to look at the different types of loans offered by different financial sources to see how they match up to your business’s needs and potential growth.  Commercial real estate loans are different than residential real estate loans, in which the transaction is only based on the value of the property at the time of the sale—commercial real estate financing is partially based on the future value of your business.  Knowing the different potential sources for office rental space in Overland Park funding as well as being familiar with the factors that go into structuring these deals can help you make an informed decision about how best to finance your acquisition of commercial rental property.
