That’s the question sitting on the lips of many a business person: what is 2022 going to look like, and is it a good time for leasing office space or any other commercial property for rent?
We happen to think the answer to that question is a resounding YES, and we are going to tell you why we think that in this article. We are RDS Real Estate, serving the great people of Fort Worth and Tarrant County, Texas. Call us at 817-439-3224 for details about some excellent commercial and industrial property for rent.
Now, though, let’s talk about 2022 and how it will affect your business.
The commercial landscape of 2022 for leasing office space
There is no doubt that COVID upset the proverbial apple cart in the business world. Hundreds-of-thousands of businesses folded and closed in 2020-2021. Many of those will not return.
The landscape changed. Many jobs become at-home jobs. Many businesses have seen how inexpensive it is to leave employees at home to work rather than paying for an expensive office building.
At the same time, though, a record-number of business applications were filed, as first-time business people take a shot at new, creative at-home business opportunities.
To summarize the 2022 landscape as we approach it, we would say that it is a good time for the creative and the flexible, and a bad time for traditional.
The commercial property landscape of 2022 for leasing office space
Drive through the business district of any major city on Earth, and you will see a record-number of “For Rent” signs in windows. The commercial and industrial real estate market took a hit, no doubt about it, as thousands of businesses failed. Those empty offices meant lower prices for rentals, and lower prices means opportunity for those new businesses looking to dip their toes in the business environment.
Office space to rent which rented for $2.00 per square foot, or $2.50 per square foot, now is renting for considerably less in many cases. Outstanding properties in outstanding locations are now within financial reach of small businesses, where once they were, in no way, possible.
To put it simply, it is a good time to be a healthy company looking for an office space for lease.
Does your business fit in that landscape?
So, what about your business? Are you thriving? If so, and you have entertained thoughts of leasing office space, we absolutely guarantee this is a great time to do so. The economic outlook is good for the near future, and if that outlook is accurate, prices will rise as the economy stabilizes and then shows healthy growth. Now is the time if you are contemplating a move to rent office space.
