Renting commercial property might just be the next step for your business. To help you get started, here are a few tips to bear in mind.

Assemble a team of real estate professionals

Whether you’re buying, selling, renting, or investing in commercial real estate, it’s always best to proceed with a group of real estate experts by your side. Start by hiring a commercial real estate broker, and then, depending on your needs, hire a property lawyer, an accountant, and a mortgage broker. These individuals will help you find the commercial property you want and sign the lease successfully.

Consider your business’ needs

In searching for a commercial property, don’t forget to consider your business’ needs. The property’s location, square footage, amenities, utilities, and additional features (among other factors) should be beneficial to your business’ growth long term. With this in mind, set a criteria and keep this front and center while you and your CRE broker scour the St. Louis Metro real estate market for the perfect fit.

Review the commercial lease carefully

As a responsible tenant, exercise due diligence and carefully review the commercial lease before you sign the documents and finalize the transaction. Check the terms, such as start and end date and stipulations for termination of the lease. Familiarize yourself with the terminology (your CRE broker or team will be able to help with this).
