Why Office Parks are No Place to Plant Your Business

By Griffin Suber on 10.20.16

When shopping for office space, it’s easy
 to get so wrapped up in conference rooms and amenities that you lose sight of one of the most critical aspects to consider: where the building actually is! There could be a chocolate fondue fountain in every office but that doesn’t mean anything if your building is hidden in some dull office park in the middle of nowhere.

Good For You: Finding the Right Office Space to Fit Your Needs

By Lee Rolandi on 08.27.15

While we have seemingly endless apps and websites available to use as a resource for just about anything, with so many resources at our disposal, a task like finding office space can quickly become quite daunting. Because physical office space is such a large expense, educating yourself as much as possible and starting early are vitally important. Not only do you need to determine the needs of your business at present, but you also have to consider its future. AdvantEdge can help assist along the way and ensure you make the best decision for both your company and your employees.

When it comes to determining the office space needs of your business, it’s most important to stay realistic. Try not to over- or underestimate - your business’s future capacity by allowing yourself enough time to evaluate the needs of your employees, your future business plans, and by doing your research thoroughly. Once you’ve nailed down the roadmap of your business plan, a good place to turn to amidst your search are the tried and true resource of real estate brokers. While you can search for space on any site or app, brokers understand the current conditions of the real estate market for your city and can help you make better informed choices about a building or market than you would be able to on your own. This is particularly helpful if you’re trying to set up an office in an area that you may be unfamiliar with. Online reviews and social media, when mixed in with expert opinions from your broker, are also good resources for getting the feel of a space. These tools can provide insight into the quality of the customer service you would receive, building amenities, and current tenant satisfaction.
