It is a decision every home-based business owner eventually faces: should they expand into a loft for rent or an equally-intriguing studio for rent? And the related question usually quickly follows: how much will it cost to do so?
In this article we are going to give you three reasons why we believe a Fort Worth loft for rent for a home-based business is a good idea. We are RDS Real Estate, serving the Greater Fort Worth area, but the reasons we outline in this article apply to any city in the United States. Call us at 817-439-3224 for more information or to arrange to view a loft for rent in Fort Worth.
A loft for rent because the time is right
We know why most home-based business owners opted for that home base to begin with: cost! It is infinitely less-expensive to work your small business from your home or garage than it is to rent commercial property or industrial property for lease. There is no doubt about that, and we have no argument which can contradict it.
But we can tell you that the economic scene will never be better for a small business looking to rent a professional site away from home. The Pandemic of 2020, spilling into 2021, has changed the economic landscape. Property rentals are much less expensive than they were pre-COVID. Drive through any city and count the “For Rent” signs in the business district. All of those empty storefronts and empty offices means lower prices. That is an economic reality which you can profit from, and it is liable to stay that way for several more years.
A loft for rent, a shop for rent, a warehouse for rent, a retail space for lease, all of these things are “renter friendly” right now, and they are very, very attractive for small business owners looking to expand out of the home.
A loft for rent because of the professional appearance
As nice as it is to work from home, and as inexpensive as it is, to be brutally honest, it just isn’t a professional look for your business. What if you need to meet with a customer or client? What if you have a Zoom meeting, and the dog is barking, or the baby is crying? As unfair as it may seem, a home is not a professional setting for a business, certainly not like a business park is.
A loft for rent benefits from the Laws of Attraction
A person drives up to a local storefront, intent on purchasing something from that store, but as they are getting out of their car, they notice your business logo, and realize they also need what you are selling. This happens every single day in every single city, and it happens countless times. Your business will benefit by being located near other related business. That will not happen if you continue to run a home-based business.
