But first, the ultimate guide when looking for a shop for rent.
It begins with your wish list
It’s time to dream big. Sit down at the computer and make a list. Make it an extensive, detailed list. On that list I want you to put down every single thing you want in a shop for rent. List the size, list the price, list the amenities, list anything and everything. This will help you to focus during your search, and it will also add clarity to your search. There are literally hundreds of available commercial property for rent and industrial property for rent in any city of decent size, and it can be overwhelming doing a search of those properties. This list will keep you grounded and aimed at the ultimate prize, which is to match your needs perfectly with a property.
Contact a qualified and respected commercial real estate broker
Go online and do a Google search of “shop for rent” in your city. Now scroll down those pages, and you will begin to realize the enormity of the job ahead of you. No single business owner has the time or the knowledge necessary to make an informed decision regarding property to rent. You need a professional. You need a professional real estate broker.
The obvious question, then, is how do you find such a broker you can trust? How do you find one you can have a good rapport with?
Our suggestion, based on decades in this business, is to ask around. If you are a member of the business community, you will receive some good recommendations for your fellow business owners. Trust those recommendations. Sit down and talk with those brokers, and find the one you can trust.
Contact a lawyer before signing anything for a shop for rent
You won’t hear this from every real estate firm, but you will hear it from RDS Real Estate: contact a real estate lawyer to make sure you are protected. Yes, it will cost you money in the short run, but it will save you headaches, heartaches, and much more money in the long run.
Know the language of commercial real estate contracts
The average citizen, dare we say the average business owner, does not understand a standard real estate contract. Your lawyer will help you with this, but you should also educate yourself on the vernacular. Knowledge is power.
Information is king
What we are telling you, in a nutshell, is to do your homework before you even begin looking at commercial and industrial property for lease. Yes, it will take you extra time, but it will be time well-spent, and it will ultimately lead you to the perfect shop for rent for your needs.
