Touring a commercial space may leave you with all types of questions whether they’re about the interior, price, square footage, or amenities. Prior to viewing a commercial space, prepare a list of questions so you can feel confident with your leasing decision.

Below are some questions to consider when viewing a new commercial property:

  • What’s the square footage of the office/building?
  • What amenities are offered?
  • How can we access the building after-hours?
  • What other businesses are in the neighborhood? How safe is the neighborhood?
  • Do we need to pay for parking?
  • Is there public transportation?
  • How recently was the office updated?

Some additional tips for touring office spaces:

  • Limit yourself to three to four properties per day. If you view more in a day, you might stop paying attention to details.
  • Think about the future. Do you see your company growing in the next year?
  • Consider the needs of your clients. Will clients have easy access to your office? For international businesses that have clients fly in, see if there are hotel accommodations nearby.
  • If your company constantly has visitors, pay attention to the building structure. Think about how you will explain to your guests how to get to your office.
  • How clean is the lobby? The lobby will significantly impact how visitors view your business.
