Whether you give rent or purchase space for your office, it represents a major financial investment. There are many important factors to consider that may sway you towards the decision to lease real estate for your business rather than buy.
Here are a few reasons why renting office space may be a better choice than buying.
1. Cash Outlay
Rental office spaces require less cash flow than when you purchase a property. Companies that buy property for offices must have a significant amount of cash upfront but in renting case business owners don’t need upfront money.
The rental property provides annual flexibility that allows you to move in and out with ease as and when you desire. Purchased property isn’t nearly as flexible, it becomes difficult to shift the entire office to a new one when you have settles already.
3. Down payments
Buying office space is a long-term commitment, which requires a heavy amount of down payment, and is best suited for businesses with adequate financial resources. Whereas leasing is a short-term commitment, suitable for small and medium scale businesses where you put down a refundable deposit, and your cash flow becomes working capital.
An increased need for space in an owned building may cause a crisis if you have no neighborhood area to expand your business. In the case of leasing, companies can easily avoid the cost and hassle of moving simply by renting executive office suites from an office space provider.
Like any investment, buying office space may create profit or loss. Owning a building generates far more work than a simple rental. Because commercial real estate runs in cycles, companies should only invest in good financial markets in order for an appreciation strategy to be effective.
6. Tax factor
When businesses rent temporary office suites, they may deduct their payments and write off repair work immediately. Purchasing office facilities allows for depreciation of any property improvements. Business building owners may also deduct interest for any loan balances, tax liabilities, or other expenses.
7. Full-service leases may be cheaper than owning a property
When comparing the cost of buying a property to the cost of leasing, it is important to include the operating expenses that come with owning a property. There are routine maintenance expenses, trash removal service expenses, utility costs, and many more services which are associated with full-service rental rate.
The decision to rent or buy should take into account according to your business plan, the real estate market in your area, and your practice’s finances. Before signing on the dotted line, make sure your decision fits into your long-term goals.
