New Year, New Building
As we head into the new year we at Harkins Commercial Real Estate are always thinking about what’s coming next. For many businesses in the Orlando area, 2015 was a year of massive growth and change. With growth and change can come the opportunity to change a business location and start fresh in a new facility. If you’re looking to make some major changes in 2016, looking into the real estate landscape may be an awesome option. Here are some things to consider if you are planning on making a move this year.
One of the major reasons businesses change their location is because they have grown. Growth is great, but if you need to change your address to accommodate you also need to think about potential future growth. If you don’t want to be moving year-after-year to keep up with your business, think realistically about how much space you’ll need for the duration of your lease. Or, if you’re planning on buying a spot, you’ll really want to make sure you’ve got enough room to grow.
If you’re looking into a new location to expand your business offerings, it’s extremely important to ask yourself if city ordinances and zoning laws will allow you to do so. For example, if you’re a restaurant and were eyeing opening up your own brewery to supply your own tap lines, you need to consult your real estate agent if this is a possibility. We’ll be happy to look into the laws.
After a year of analyzing your business you may be able to look into moving to get better results. Maybe your business doesn’t depend on foot traffic and you can move out of an expensive, crowded location into something more out of the way. Or perhaps you weren’t’ getting the traffic you need to keep your business a float, moving to a new area of town may just be the ticket. Your Harkins Commercial Real Estate Agent will be able to help you find the perfect location for your business no matter your goals
If changing your business’s location is what you need in 2016, give us a call at Harkins Commercial Real Estate. We’re happy to get the ball rolling and get you into the perfect place.
