Selecting an office doesn’t need to be a grueling experience if you take it step by step and think about your needs. Before delving into the process, the first thing you’ll want to do is see how much office space your company needs. Some business owners are used to expanding spaces while others are starting up their business and aren’t too sure where to begin. Regardless of where you are in the process, we’re here to make your office search much less stressful.

Check the Square Footage: Paying attention to the square footage is critical when it comes to leasing an office. If you lease an office that is too large, you’ll end up paying too much in rent. On the other hand, if you underestimate the amount of square footage you’ll need, you could find yourself cramming employees into an office.

How Many Employees Will You Need in the Next Three Years? Leasing an office is typically a long-term commitment, as business owners aren’t looking to move offices every couple of years. While it’s good to think about how many employees you currently have, consider whether your office will be growing in the upcoming years. Think about how quickly your company is expanding. Do you offer work from home arrangements? It’s important not to sign a lease for how many employees you have today.

Consider the Layout of the Space: If you’ll need multiple offices, consider leasing a larger office space. Additionally, cubicles take up additional room so be mindful of how much space you will be utilizing.
