Tip 1: Follow your head, not your heart
Make a choice based on rational thought and not on your emotional investment.
Tip 2: Your financial position
It can be the driving force and also the barrier to renting or buying a business property. Choose suitable premises, at the right price because if the costs are too big, it will suck your business under.
Tip 3: Location, Location, Location
A retail unit in a shopping mall with a footfall of several hundred people a day will cost considerably more than a unit down an alleyway or side street. If your business needs footfall – people walking past and dropping in ‘on spec’ –clearly you need a property as close to the main shopping route as possible. If your business doesn’t need this footfall, serviced offices on business premises can tick all your maintenance and service needs, ensuring all bases are covered.
Tip 4: The Right Impression
Your business premises must suit your business. It needs to match the sector where you operate. If you are a store that sells vintage clothing and accessories, there is a certain look and ambience you want to create to meet customer expectations and match your commercial needs.
Tip 5: The Legal Stuff
Ensure you can meet the various legal obligations and rules that might come with your new property. You don’t want to sign the dotted line only to find that to make it into what your business needs will cost a small fortune.
