What’s the cost of keeping up the space?
When looking at the cost of the office space, do not forget to plan for the future. You can have a professional come to the space and assess the cost of upkeep so that you have a better idea of what you (and your pocketbook) are in for. You’ll also want to take note of any old walls, spots that may need renovating, and any outdated areas that will need a little TLC soon.
What is the lease like?
When it comes to money, most people want to be extra cautious, and weigh all their options. In doing so, it may be a good idea to have a professional look over any potential leasing agreements to be sure that you are really getting the best deal, and that there isn’t anything hidden you didn’t see the first time. Picking the leasing agreement apart is important, and so is finding out about any restrictions. You will want to know if there are restrictions or stipulations on your lease, such as not being able to use it on the weekends, or whether someone will be subletting your space. All good things to know, and they could all make a difference in your decision to take or pass on the office space.
