Is your retail business booming? Are you primed and ready for an expansion? If so, that’s great news and a big accomplishment, but of course, new opportunities also bring fresh challenges. One of yours may be finding the right retail store for lease in Woodbridge, VA.
As you know, there are all sorts of factors that feed into the perfect retail space. People always say ‘location, location, location!’ but honestly, that’s an oversimplification. Let’s take a closer look at exactly what that means. Here are few of the specific parameters:
- A high traffic area. Retail stores depend on volume. More people moving through or passing by an area means more potential customers
- Easy access. A big part of what makes one location better than another is easy ingress or egress. That means not only wide, well-marked roads and multiple entry points to your location, but also proximity to interstate highways, major state roads, or busy city streets that can all help feed traffic to you.
- The presence of strong anchors. No business is an island. A truly great location will have other strong retail stores, creating an even stronger pull for customers.
Of course, there’s a flip side to the equation too. A great location that has all three of the factors mentioned above is also going to be highly sought after, which is going to make rents in the area higher, so the ideal retail store for lease in Woodbridge, VA for your business may not be the one that has the absolute most traffic, the absolute easiest access, and the absolute strongest anchors.
It’s a balancing act, based at least in part on what you can afford and what you expect your volume to be at each location.
In other words, finding the perfect retail store for lease in Woodbridge, VA for your business can be a more daunting task than at first thought, and as a business owner, you’ve got a million other things to do, which means that you’ll need some expert help and advice to simplify the process.
We are the experts you’ve been looking for. We’ve been proudly serving the region since 1978, and in that time, have helped hundreds of area businesses expand their operations, playing a pivotal role in expanding our local economy. Since we’re a locally owned and operated company, our knowledge and understanding of the local market is unmatched.
When you’re ready, we’d love to sit down with you to better understand your business, your specific needs, and your budget. Armed with that information, we’ll be able to tap into our extensive network of contacts and find the best retail stores for lease in Woodbridge, VA that are a perfect match for your criterion.
We’ll present them to you, but of course, looking at the details of each property on paper doesn’t give you enough information to make an informed decision, so we’ll be happy to take you around and show you any of the properties you’re interested in, in person.
In some instance, you’ll find that one property stands out above the others and really speaks to you. It’s a happy occasion when that happens, because it makes the final selection easy. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work out that way, and in fact, that doesn’t even happen a majority of the time.
Instead, what most people find is that there are two or three strong contenders, each with their own advantages, and choosing from among them can be agonizing.
When that happens, the best way to choose an overall winner is to evaluate each of the agreements offered on each retail store for lease in Woodbridge, VA under consideration to see which one has the best terms and thus, would be of greatest overall benefit to you and your business, but there’s a problem.
Lease agreements tend to be long, incredibly complex documents. Properly evaluating just one can take days, so if you have to evaluate two or three and understand them well enough to make an apples to apples comparison, it can tie you down for weeks.
We understand how frustrating that can be, and we know you’d much rather spend the bulk of your time focused on growing your business and attending to the other details of your planned expansion. That’s why we offer lease guidance to all our business clients.
You may not spend much time pouring over lease agreements, but we see them all the time. That gives us the expertise you need. We can sit down with you and go over them together, helping you cut through the clutter and make sense of the pertinent details, which will speed you on your way to finding the perfect retail store for lease in Woodbridge, VA.
Business clients aren’t the only people we help though. If you’re an investor, and you’re looking to buy a great commercial property in our area, we can help with that too.
If you’ve purchased commercial real estate before, you know that the process can be fraught with unexpected difficulties. Roadblocks can seem to arise from out of nowhere and needlessly complicate things.
Having purchased several commercial properties ourselves, we understand the frustration that can lead to, which is why we offer our investor clients a brokerage concierge service. Whatever comes up, from licensing to permitting and more, we’ll take care of it for you, smoothing out the rough edges of the process and cutting through the red tape for you so your experience is as hassle-free as we can possibly make it.
Many first time commercial property owners want to take an active hand in managing their properties, and we recommend that approach. It gives you invaluable firsthand experience in the challenges and complexities of property management, which allows you to better understand the process.
Some people find that they love the hands on approach, but as your portfolio expands, the day to day challenges will inevitably become increasingly overwhelming.
Once you’ve acquired a handful of properties, you may find yourself getting bogged down by the never ending parade of tenant questions and requests, to say nothing of having to deal with routine building maintenance, accounting issues and the like.
In our experience, sooner or later, commercial property owners reach a point where they’d just rather delegate the management aspect and focus more on strategic acquisitions.
That makes sense to us, which is why we began offering a robust property management service.
When you reach the point where you’re ready to let someone else handle the day to day management duties, we’ve got you covered. Our system has been carefully refined over the years, and is rock solid, designed to maximize your ROI.
We handle everything from routine building maintenance, lease management and accounting, responding to tenant requests and complains, and of course, finding great, high-quality tenants to keep your commercial real estate space at full capacity.
As you know, few things will dent your ROI faster than having a high vacancy rate, but finding the right tenants takes both time and money. That’s where our service really shines, because we’re in constant contact with successful business owners eager to expand their operations.
If their needs and yours coincide, we can put the two of you together in a mutually beneficial arrangement that helps your business and theirs.
In addition to that, we’ve been building our robust network of professional connections since we first opened our doors in 1978, and have the necessary contacts to handle any problems that might arise.
