If you’re like many business owners, your company probably had humble beginnings. You may have started with little more than a big idea and the ambition to turn your dream into a reality. Starting from your kitchen table, you worked tirelessly to grow and expand, and your hard work paid off! Your fledgling business began to thrive and soon, it was booming. Now, all that hard work has paid off again, and you find yourself ready to expand your retail operation.
First, congratulations! It’s always inspiring when a labor of love grows into a smashing success, but of course, as exciting as expansion is, it’s also fraught with peril. Finding the perfect retail space near Lorton, VA can be a daunting, frustrating task, especially if you’re not from the area. It takes time to gain familiarity with the local market, and unfortunately, it’s probably time you don’t have, given how many hats you’re already wearing.
There’s good news on that front though, you don’t have to go it alone. We are the top-rated commercial real estate brokerage house in the region and in the decades we’ve been serving the area, we’ve helped scores of businesses expand their operations here. We’d be honored to assist you on your quest to find the right retail space near Lorton, VA to expand your business into.
If you decide you want to work with us, just give our office a call or stop by to sit down with us so we can learn more about the business you’re in and what your specific needs are. While location is key, every retail operation is different, and depending on what you’re selling, certain types of anchor stores will wind up being more beneficial to you than others. The more we learn about your operation, the better we’ll be able to guide you toward locations that will stack the deck in favor of your success.
Once we’ve gathered the details from you, and have an understanding of your budget, we’ll tap into our extensive network of contacts and generate a list of properties that meet your particular needs at a price you can afford.
Spend as much time as you like going over the property listing sheets we send your way and start evaluating them to see if any favorites emerge. When you’ve culled the list a bit and selected your favorites, get back in touch with us and we’ll arrange to take you around to see your semi-finalists in person. After all, while the details the listing sheets contain give you a good general sense of each property, there’s simply no substitute for an in-person visit when it comes to truly getting a feel for each space.
Once in a while, as a result of those in-person visits, a clear winner emerges. One property simply stands out from the rest. You love everything about it. The anchor stores are spot on, it’s got easy access, plenty of parking, and it’s offered at a price you can afford. It almost feels as though the property was just waiting for you to find it, and you know it’s the ideal retail space near Lorton, VA to expand your operation into.
It’s lovely when that happens, but most of the time, it doesn’t. What’s usually the case is that after your in-person visits, 2-4 finalists emerge. Each of them is compelling in its way, but none are absolutely perfect, which makes the final choice an agonizing one.
When that happens, the best and most effective way of choosing from among your finalists is to evaluate each property’s lease agreement and come to a good understanding of which one offers you the best value for the money, but there’s a catch: Evaluating lease agreements isn’t for the faint of heart.
They tend to be long, highly complex documents filled with dense legal language. It might take you days, or even up to a week to properly evaluate just one, and if you have to compare three or four of them side by side, the timeframe can grow exponentially.
Not to worry, we can help with that too. Part of the reason evaluating lease agreements is such a time intensive process is that most people don’t spend a lot of time looking at them. Our agents work with lease agreements every single day, so we’ve got the skills and experience to help you cut through the clutter and distill each agreement down to its core points so you can make a rational comparison between them.
Even better, we offer free lease guidance service to every corporate client we work with, and would be happy to help you make short work of the process. Before you know it, you’ll have a good understanding of each agreement and from that understanding, a clear winner will emerge, and you will have found the right retail space near Lorton, VA to expand your operation into.
We also understand that over time, the needs of business owners evolve and change, so once we’ve assisted you with expanding your operations to our area, if the day comes when you decide you want to stop leasing and buy your own commercial property, we can help with that too. In fact, we offer a comprehensive concierge service to anyone interested in buying commercial property. Our goal is to smooth out the rough edges of the process and make it as simple and hassle free as we can.
Give our office a call today. We’d love the opportunity to impress you!
