Five Considerations to Make Before Leasing New Office Space

April 30, 2019

Thinking about leasing commercial office space? The convenience of an office space can bring newfound credibility to you and your brand. However, there are some things you would want to ensure you consider prior to signing a lease.

Let’s take a look at 5 considerations you will want to make before leasing that new office space, and why these things are important to consider.

The Cost

This one may seem painfully obvious, but don’t skip over it just yet. The cost of your new office is more than just the monthly rental expense. Keep an eye out for what the lease says regarding rental escalations or increases over time. Sometimes, these increases can be determined by the consumer price index.

Six trends in Property Management to keep an eye on

April 2, 2019

Let’s look at the various trends we will be keeping an eye out for in 2019, and how they can amp up your success in the new year.

Retention

In 2019 it will be incredibly pivotal to retain management that is long-term and consistent. This creates the capability for management to get to know the property and its tenants and provide the best possible results. With rental rates projected to plateau in 2019-2020, it will be key for management to maintain peak operating performances, mitigate vacancies and control expenses so investors and landlords can see maximum returns.

Technology

Our society is becoming more and more technologically advanced. Utilizing technology to create efficiencies and maximize a property’s performance. Allowing tenants to utilize technology to lessen human error allows for properties to run more smoothly and successfully. Additionally, studies show that tenants prefer mobile communication. Using these technological tactics will create happier tenants which in turn, produces longevity and fewer vacancies.
