As your business grows, the day is inevitably going to come when your back office personnel are going to start running out of room and you’ll need to expand your operations. If you’ve reached that point and the members of your office staff are tripping over one another, you may have already begun the search for additional commercial office space for rent near Fairfax, VA.
Unless you’re intimately familiar with the area though, that process can be a daunting one. Sure, everyone says location is key and that sounds good, but in practice, that simple phrases glosses over a lot of particulars.
What specific things make a perfect location? The answer is quite different when you’re looking for commercial office space for rent near Fairfax, VA than when you’re looking for a great retail outlet. Here are just a few of the factors worth considering:
- Easy Access – You want to make sure that your employees don’t have a tough time reaching their new office space. That means proximity to highways, state roads, or major thoroughfares in town.
- Adequate Parking – A no-brainer. You don’t want to take a hit to productivity simply because your employees are circling the lot trying to find a place to park.
- Security – The ideal location will be in a decent part of town so your employees and their vehicles aren’t at risk, simply by coming to work.
- Amenities – This includes not only the particulars of the lease agreement that offer benefits to you, including adequate building maintenance, but also employee amenities like having a selection of restaurants in the area so they’ve got choices where lunchtime is concerned.
Then, of course, there’s the matter of budgetary constraints. You want to find commercial office space for rent near Fairfax, VA that checks as many of those boxes as possible without busting your budget. As we said, that’s a tall order and can require intensive research, especially if you’re not already familiar with the area.

How much space do you need? What are your requirements where the building itself is concerned?

Once we have a better understanding of what your needs are, we’ll be able to use that information to generate a list of potential office spaces to show you.
After you’ve had an opportunity to review the listings, pick out your favorites, and we’ll be happy to take you around to show you as many of them as you like. That’s a critical next step, because although there’s a lot of great information on the listing sheet about each property, it’s certainly no substitute for going to the properties you’re most interested in and moving around the space yourself.
That’s what gives you a feel for the space and a better understanding about which properties are the best overall fit for you.
In a few cases, what will happen is, you’ll narrow your search to a top three or four, and on seeing them in person, one of your finalists will stand out far above the rest. When that happens, making the final selection is easy.
Unfortunately that only happens in a minority of cases. The more likely outcome is that you’ll wind up with two or three finalists, each having features you like about them, but none you can declare the clear overall winner.
At that point, making your final selection is probably going to come down to the particulars of each property’s lease agreement, but there’s a catch.
Lease agreements are notoriously complex documents, filled with dense legal language that can make them difficult to decipher unless you’re in the habit of working with such agreements on a regular basis.
As it turns out, we do that, which is why our lease guidance service is so popular with our clients. It’s a free service we provide to everyone who works with us.
We can sit down with you and the lease agreements of the properties you’re considering and help you cut through the clutter and noise, getting to the heart of each lease agreement in short order and allowing you to make an apples to apples comparison so you can make an informed decision about which agreement offers you the best overall deal.
Gaining a thorough understanding of several lease agreements on your own is certainly possible, but it’s a process that can tie you up for weeks. We can cut that time down considerably which streamlines and simplifies the process of picking a new location, allowing you to focus on the business of your business.
If that sounds good to you and you’re ready to get started, give our office a call today. We’re looking forward to working with you.
