What are my options?
If your space satisfies your current and future needs, consider renewing your lease. We can help you ensure the space will be available and negotiate a new lease with the building owner.
If you’ve outgrown your space or need to make a change, you might consider subleasing additional space, relocating when your lease expires or even purchasing instead of leasing. We’ll partner with you to create a short-list of options and secure the best space for your business.
Or, you might be looking to establish a presence in the market by opening a new location. We’ll help you define your needs and find the right space.
How much space do I need and where do I want to be located?
It all starts with thinking critically about the future of your business. The best commercial leasing decisions take medium- to long-range business goals into consideration. Ask yourself:
• Is my business growing or shrinking?
• What type of talent am I looking to attract?
• What locations align with my business vision and goals?
We’ll work with you to answer these questions and more to guide your decision-making process.
What is the timeline and process I can expect?
What are all the costs I should consider?
The negotiation of rent and tenant incentives depends on the dynamics of your local market. Your Colliers expert will help you understand these market conditions and arm you with the tools you need to develop an accurate cost projection.
Don’t forget to factor in any tenant improvement costs, which might include retaining a workplace designer, construction costs, utility expenses, essential infrastructure investments and furniture, fixture and equipment expenditures.
Some other costs to consider include legal fees, costs associated with concluding your current lease and any “make good” obligations to return your existing space to its original state.
How do I ensure I make the best decision?
In any complex process, the best decisions are founded in reliable information, strong relationships and collaboration. Your Colliers professional will arm you with actionable market insight, meaningful business connections and occupancy analysis to help you make the most optimal decision.
