Rent office space instead of buying

Sometimes to rent office space for commercial or industrial purposes makes more financial sense especially if you don’t intend on staying there for more than a couple of years. In these unpredictable financial times to rent office space is probably your best and safest bet.

Buying commercial property is not always the best financial choice one could make.

Why renting office space makes sense?

You may not have saved enough money to use as a down payment on a office space, let alone the other costs associated with buying a property like lawyer and transfer fees. If that is the case, then to rent office space is most likely your best option. Renting makes sense for other reasons as well. Here are a few:

  • The freedom to move easily from place to place can benefit you as a business, especially if your target market constantly shifting
  • To rent office space can save you the time, responsibility and costs of maintaining the property
  • You are not responsible for upgrading appliances, modernising a kitchen or bathroom, or replacing a leaking roof etc.
  • You don’t have to pay property taxes and special assessments
  • When you rent office space you avoid the risks that property owners face—losing the money they invested if property prices nose-dive.
