If you are reading this article, your home business must be doing well; otherwise, you wouldn’t be looking for outstanding retail space for lease, correct? So, congratulations to you for your successful home business! Succeeding during these uncertain economic times is not easy, so you deserve kudos for whatever you have done correctly.
But now you are faced with a decision: do you continue to work your business out of your home, or do you take the next big step in retail and look to rent a retail space for rent?
That is the question we will tackle in this article. We are RDS Real Estate, serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us at 817-439-3224 if you would like to take a look at the retail space for rent options we have in Tarrant County.
Now, though, let’s talk about the reasons why your homes business needs retail lease space.
You have outgrown your home
This is probably the most common reason why home business owners make the big move into a retail lease space: there is no longer any room, in their home, to run a business and actually live in the home. The garage is full of inventory. The spare bedroom as been overrun with bookwork and inventory. And the kids are wondering why the kitchen has so many boxes in it.
We submit to you this logic: if we just described your home, it’s probably time to, at least consider, finding a retail space for lease in your area.
You really do need a professional face to your business
At some point in time, if you are serious about taking your retail business to the next level, you really need a professional face to that business. As much as you may love your home, having customers come to your home to sample product is a bit tacky. Looking professional still stands for something in the business world. Imagine if Bill Gates never expanded and kept trying to grow Microsoft from his garage? Would anyone have taken him seriously?
Appearance does count in retail! Looks do matter! A brick-and-mortar store says “success,” and that’s an undeniable reality in business.
Customer convenience is important
Think about the process of getting product to customers with a home business. You take the orders online, you package them at home, and you ship those packages out. The customers have to wait two, three, four days for their product to arrive. You must spend a portion of your day dealing with shipping.
It is time lost, for you, and time waiting, for customers, and neither of those things are good.
A commercial property for rent eliminates the wait time for customers. A commercial property for lease greatly reduces the shipping time component in your day. A retail lease space benefits from walk-in traffic and drive-by traffic, thus increasing your visibility and volume.
Bottom line: do you want to take this to the next level? If you do, you really need to give some serious thought to joining the big boys and renting retail lease space.
