Most people don’t understand the work that goes into building a business. Those ‘overnight success’ stories gloss over all the late nights and long hours, but for business owners, it’s a labor of love and most wouldn’t have it any other way.
If your retail business is primed for expansion, it’s a clear sign that all those long hours have paid off, and that’s great news and a huge personal milestone. Congratulations are definitely in order.
Of course, expansion brings with it a host of new challenges, not the least of which is finding the right retail store for lease near Fairfax, VA to expand into. That project can be especially daunting if you’re not from the area.
Sure, you can spend the time it takes to gain a deep familiarity with the Fairfax market so you’ve got a good enough understanding of it that you can make a good, informed decision where the best locations are concerned, but there’s a catch. Gaining that level of understanding takes time, and you probably don’t have a lot of that to spare.
If that’s the situation you find yourself in, help is just a phone call away. As the top-rated independent brokerage firm in the area, nobody can match our expertise and intimate familiarity with the market. We’ll be more than happy to help you find the perfect retail store for lease near Fairfax, VA to expand into.
If you decide you’d like help expanding your business into the area, the first thing we’ll want to do is sit down with you either on the phone or in person and learn a bit about your business. Not all retail operations are created equally, and a location that may be ideal for one may be a disaster where your business is concerned.
Once we know more about the business you’re in we can start thinking in terms of which anchor stores would be the best compliment, and what locations might be ideal. That information, combined with your own tastes, preferences and needs, then further combined with an understanding of your budget will allow us to generate a list of exciting retail stores for lease near Fairfax, VA for your consideration.
Property listing sheets contain a number of important details, so take all the time you need to evaluate them on paper. Then, once you’ve selected a few favorites you’d like to see in person, give us a call back or stop by our office and we’ll schedule a time to see the properties for yourself and walk each space to get a better understanding of it and how well it would meet your needs and mesh with your business.
Once in a while, when you start touring properties in person, you find one that really jumps out at you. You love the anchor stores, it’s got every feature you want, plenty of space to grow your new location, it’s easy to access and has plenty of parking. Best of all, it’s offered at a price that makes you smile.
It’s awesome when that happens, but unfortunately, that’s a bit of a rarity. What’s far more likely to occur is that you’ll be left with 2-3 close contenders and choosing from among them can be an agony. They each bring something you love to the table, but no clear-cut winner emerges. When that happens, finding the right retail store for lease near Fairfax, VA to expand your business into comes down to evaluating each property’s lease agreement, then comparing them with each other to see which one delivers the most value to you and your business.
Unfortunately, the problem with that is the fact that lease agreements are notoriously complicated documents, usually filled with page after page of dense legal language. Reading just one document like that for comprehension is a process than can take a week and if you have to read several, then compare them against each other, the process can stretch out even longer.
The good news is that we can help with that too! We offer free lease guidance service to all of our corporate clients. Since our agents work with lease agreements just about every day, we can help you cut through that dense legal language and distill each agreement down to its essential components. Once you’ve got a succinctly defined list of bullet points for each agreement, a rational comparison becomes much easier. At that point, one agreement will probably stand out from the others in terms of overall value, and your final decision is easier to make.
Does that sound good to you? Does that put your mind more at ease and make you less stressed at the prospect of expanding your operation? We certainly hope so! Our goal is to make the process as simple and stress free as we can, and since we’ve been doing business in the area, we’ve gotten lots of practice as we’ve helped scores of business owners just like you expand into our area.
When you’re ready to begin, just give our office a call. Let’s sit down together and take your business to the next level, and should the day come that you decide you want to stop leasing and buy your own commercial property, we’ll be more than happy to help with that too. We can hardly wait for the opportunity to exceed your expectations.
