Houston Office Space Tenant Advisory

When you are a running a business, the last thing you want to do is stop and negotiate the lease for your office space every few years. Not only does it take up valuable time, but if you are not a real estate expert, you can end up paying more than you have to. However, there is a way to ensure you get the best deal without having to spend a lot of time focused on the details of a rental agreement: hire a tenant advisor.

How Tenant Advisors Save You Money

Many managers and business owners dismiss the idea of hiring a tenant advisor, because they feel as if it will end up costing them more money in the long run due to extra fees. After all, the tenant advisor has to make a living, right? The idea of added fees is usually a myth. Office leases already have fees incorporated to pay both tenant advisors and listing agents.

The tenant advisor can also help you save money on your lease. Renting office space can be expensive, and because the average person does not understand everything that goes into the contract, your advisor can explain each step to you so that you do not end up paying more than you have to. He or she will be knowledgeable about the current commercial property market, so they can ensure you are getting the best deal. If you are looking to relocate, the advisor can also analyze several different properties to determine which one is perfect for your business and your budget.


Choosing the Right Tenant Advisor

Before choosing someone to help you find the right office space, you need to make sure they are qualified to do the job. The number one quality you want in a tenant advisor is someone who knows the inner workings of the commercial real estate market in your area and stays current on rates and contract terms. You need to know if the advisor works independently or with other agents and companies that could pose a potential conflict of interest. It is also important to know if the person you hire is willing to spend ample time working towards your needs. If the tenant advisor you hire is overbooked with multiple projects, you can bet that you will not be able to reach him or her when you need them.

Always ask the person you hire what their experience is. A good tenant advisor will provide you with references from previous clients. You may even try asking around to find out if other managers and business owners in your area are familiar with your potential hire. Be sure the advisor is willing to agree to your terms before they start working. The two of you should agree on what you are looking for in an office space and lease and how much the advisor will be paid once the process is finished. Finally, find out what happens if you decide you are not happy with the tenant advisor's work. Does your working contract hold you responsible for any type of fees if you decide your business relationship is not working out?
