It takes a stunning amount of work to grow a retail business from an idea into a thriving enterprise. Most non business owners don’t fully appreciate the sheer amount of effort and dedication required, so they don’t get what a huge milestone it is when you finally reach the point where your business is primed for expansion into a new market.
We understand. As the region’s top-rated independent commercial real estate broker, we’ve helped scores of new businesses expand into our area and if you’re ready to make the leap into a new market, we’d love to be of assistance.
Expansion is exciting, but it definitely comes with its share of challenges and potential headaches. That’s especially true if you’re considering expanding into an area you’re not already intimately familiar with. Sure, you can study the market and the area to get a firm handle on it but doing that takes time and that’s the one resource you probably don’t have in abundance.
That’s where we come in. We live here and have been proudly serving the area for decades. With a deep understanding of the local market, we can quickly and easily find the perfect commercial retail space for lease near Lorton, VA to expand your business into.
The first thing we’ll want to do if you decide to work with us is to sit down to talk about your business. The more we understand about what you do and who you sell to, the better we can zero in on the best areas of town for your business.
There are no cookie cutter solutions here. The anchor stores that serve as the best fit for your business will differ from other businesses. Your customers may live predominantly in, or travel through one part of town much more frequently than any other, and if you want to thrive, you need to be where they are and where they go.
That’s the kind of information our initial conversation reveals. Once we have it and understand more about the business you’re in, we’ll tap into our extensive network of contacts and generate a list of fantastic commercial retail spaces for lease near Lorton, VA that would be a great fit for your expansion effort.
There’s a lot of information on property listing sheets, so by all means, take as much time as you need to review them. If we’ve done the first part of our job well and have a good understanding of your business, odds are good that you’ll find a few favorites among the initial listings we give you. If we need to go back to the drawing board and generate a few others, that’s fine too.
Once you do have some favorites though, just get back in touch with us and we’ll schedule times to take you around to see each one. As valuable as the information on the property listing sheets might be, it’s no substitute for an in-person visit. Only when you walk each space can you really get a feel for its suitability as a potential expansion site.
In some cases, finding the right commercial retail space for lease near Lorton, VA to expand your business into is a simple matter because once you start in-person site visits, one property will really stand out from the rest.
You love everything about it. It’s offered at a great price, the anchor stores are a perfect compliment to your business, there’s plenty of parking and easy access into and out of the area, and it’s even got some of the extras you wanted.
It’s always nice when things work out like that, but honestly that only happens once in a great while. What’s far more common is that you find 2-3 places that are each pretty good and each have compelling points about them but none of them stand out from the pack.
In those cases, choosing the best commercial retail space for lease near Lorton, VA is a lot trickier. Ultimately it comes down to evaluating each property’s lease agreement to see which one offers the best deal and the biggest overall benefit to your business, but there’s a catch:
Lease agreements are tricky. They tend to be quite long and filled with dense legal language that can make reading them for comprehension a time consuming process. Reading just one and fully understanding it can tie up days of your life. If you have to read 2-3, and sometimes even four of them and then get to the point where you can compare them to each other, that can stretch out into weeks.
Again, most business owners just don’t have that kind of time. We understand and that’s the exact reason we offer free lease guidance service to all of our corporate clients. Our agents work with lease agreements all the time. We’ll be happy to sit down with you and help you cut through the dense language and clutter to distill each agreement down to its fundamental points.
Once you do that, comparing them side by side is a whole lot easier, and it makes reaching a final decision about the best commercial property for you, significantly easier.
If all of that sounds good to you, help is just a phone call away. Give our office a call when you’re ready to get started. We’re looking forward to speaking with you.
