Office space leasing, or temporary office space rental is a relatively new and burgeoning industry. Essentially, instead of leasing or buying an entire building, companies divide up office buildings and rent them out in a variety of ways. These businesses have created new opportunities for the nearly 28 million small businesses in the United States, and especially new startups by providing a professional place to work out of. Here are three reasons office space leasing might be just what your startup needs.
1.) Flexible: One of the biggest benefits of this type of office space leasing is the flexibility in lease terms. Whether you’re looking for a one year, ten year, one week, or one hour lease they offer a wide variety of options to fit your needs. Since many people create startups unsure of how successful the company will actually be this is a way for you to have a professional office to work from while you try to get the business off the ground. You don’t need to work from a cramped apartment, or put a large down payment and commitment into a long-term lease when you might decide to stop the business in a month.
2.) Affordable: Office space in New York City or other big cities can be extremely expensive. Even if you’re sure the business will be operating for some time, it can be to burdensome to commit to a long-term lease of an entire office building or floor. Finding inexpensive office space to rent can seem impossible, but many office space leasing companies offer great rates as they’re just trying to fill out unused space in their buildings.
3.) Convenient: If being cheap and adjusting to your needs isn’t enough to sell you on the idea, perhaps the overall convenience they offer is. Most of these offices come fully furnished loaded with all the amenities you could want. From break room fridges and microwaves, to conference rooms with monitors for Skyping in calls. These offices are generally cleaned and maintained by the leasing company as well.
