Starting a Business: Finding the Right Location

After years of saving and planning, I finally opened my own retail establishment. Before I could do so, I spent a lot of time looking at real estate options. With the help of a commercial property management firm, I did find a storefront with a great location, and enough room for my business. The agent at the firm helped me a lot by creating a profile of the type of commercial property I needed. We went over details such as lighting, display space, and even the number of electrical outlets. With the profile in hand, she found several properties that were worth considering. If you are setting up a new business and need space, let me explain why working with a property manager makes sense. I'll tell you more about how we worked together to find a place that met all my needs, including the rental cost.
