Finding a small office for rent (เช่า ออฟฟิศ ขนาด เล็ก, which is the term in Thai) can be just as frustrating and time-consuming as looking for a place to live. A broker or landlord can take advantage of you if you make a mistake navigating commercial real estate’s many ins and outs.
Here’s How To Begin
· List Your Requirements
To get started, list your initial requirements, knowing that they may change during the process. It is, however, easier to narrow down your search if a list is generated quickly. Brokers and other stakeholders can easily provide feedback by sharing a list. Decide and mention your essential requirements like “must have a pantry,” and so on, after determining the basics like size, location, and lease term.
The average amount of office space needed per employee is 150 square feet. A kitchen, if required, will require an additional 200 square feet per office, 500 square feet per conference room, and an additional 250 square feet per office. Still, you can be more frugal or more expansive if you’re in a private office setting.
A business’ most significant operating expense is its office space, so it’s crucial to figure out how much you can afford to spend on a small office for rent. The location, type, and amenities of a building can all significantly impact the price of office space (doorman, lobby, etc.). When you work with a broker, they can help you understand if your expectations are within your budget.
· When Can You Move In?
Is there a time crunch, or do you have enough time to check new places? Securing a space and the time needed to build it out typically takes three to nine months. This will vary with the space type you choose. When looking for office space, it’s a good idea to have a tenant broker on your side who can explain what to expect and how the process usually works.
· Get Started As Soon As Possible.
It can take up to eight months to find a new office space if you have specific requirements. The following three factors largely determine the range of your search:
- The Neighborhood Location For Your Business
- How Much Space Do You Need?
- Buildings You’re Considering Based On Their Vacancy Rates.
The best time to begin looking for a new small office for ren is six to twelve months before your current lease expires.
