Having an office has long been seen as the true sign of a business being established. It only stands to reason that if your business is finally getting off the ground that you would want an office to make it feel truly official, as well as to consolidate your team members and your day-to-day affairs. If you are thinking of renting office space for your business in Lexington, Kentucky, here are some things to consider from the commercial real estate experts at NAI Isaac.
Location, Location, Location
As with any real estate, the location of your property is going to be your biggest concern. Think first about your clients. Are you going to have your clients regularly visiting your office for meetings? If so, you will want to make sure that your office is visible and easily accessible for anyone who may be looking for it for the first time. Also, consider how the location will impact your employees and yourself. For your employees’ convenience, you will likely want an office that is somewhat near restaurants and coffee shops so that they will be able to grab lunch or coffee without taking too much time away from work.
Know Exactly What You’re Looking For
Renting an office for your business is exciting, whether it’s the first office your business will have, or only the most recent. But you don’t want to let the excitement affect your decisions. While we understand that you will want the best office for your business, make sure that you are only renting what you need. Keeping a budget that you will be able to stick to is a great way to make sure that you aren’t getting too carried away with your search.
Consider Company Culture
You will want an office building that not only suits all of your needs, but also one that authentically reflects your business, both to your employees and to any clients that may visit. If your business is more formal or traditional, then a multi-story building outfitted with cubicles and dedicated offices will accurately reflect your no-nonsense attitude. If you are a trendier, younger business, however, consider renting a repurposed building, such as a former warehouse, that will communicate your eclectic, more casual aesthetic.
Leave Room to Grow
We all want our businesses to thrive, and especially if your business is younger, you will want to make sure that you can accommodate your success. If you find that you need to hire more employees and add more amenities to your space, you’ll want to make sure you have the room to do that, so aiming for slightly bigger than you need at the time is actually a wise decision.
