Retail Space vs. Commercial Space – What’s the Difference?

Retail VS Comemrcial

You’ve heard the terms “retail space” and “commercial space”, but do you know the difference? Before you enter a lease, you need to know the difference and what each space can mean for your business!

Retail Space

Retail spaces are highly desirable due to the large amount of foot traffic. Often times they are located near “anchor” stores – such as grocery stores which can also help to increase your foot traffic.

While looking into retail spaces there are a few aspects to keep in mind:

Parking: Is there ample parking for your clients or customers? Will there still be enough available spaces after your employees have parked?

Accessibility: How easy is it for customers and clients to access the parking lot and building? Is it located on a busy street, but they can still enter easily? Or, is the traffic simply impossible to maneuver?

Visibility: This one is twofold. Is there a sign or marquee out front where you can show your business name? Additionally, can those passing by see your business? If the answer to either of these questions, even both, you should consider looking at other spaces.

Commercial Space

Commercial spaces are ideal for businesses that need room for cubicles in addition to a reception area, offices, and conference rooms. These businesses aside from the employees, don’t see a tremendous amount of foot traffic. They are typically centrally located, making it easier for employees who commute.

Before you lease a commercial space, consider the following:

Clients and Customers: Does your business frequently have clients or customers coming in? If not, then a commercial space would be perfect for you.

Your Business: For your type of business, does your space matter? Does your business thrive off of people coming in throughout the day and making a purchase, scheduling a service, or is your business more of an office setting with clients emailing or calling throughout the day with their needs?

Now that you’re equipped with this knowledge, the decision should be easier to make. The team at Rosetti Properties would enjoy helping you with your process and finding the space that is best suited for you and your business’ needs. For more information, or to get started, contact us today!

What to Consider Prior to Signing Your Office Lease

Sacha R - Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Prior to signing your lease, there are many factors to take into consideration. You may have some factors in mind, but, there are likely some that you are forgetting. We’ve gathered a list of items for you to check off while searching for a new space. If the space doesn’t fit the criteria, don’t settle! Rosetti Properties wants you to be confident in the space you lease, you should be confident with your decision as well.

What Message Is Being Delivered: As odd as it may sound, each building portrays a message or signal. You want your clients and customers to be comfortable while in your office, but, you don’t want the building to give them the wrong idea. While it isn’t necessarily true, many clients and customers see an upscale office or building and assume that is where their money is spent. While on the other hand, a building or space with faded paint or a door with a broken hinge gives the appearance of a struggling business, when in actuality that isn’t the case. If a property manager shows you place that falls into the latter category, you should reconsider renting their space.

Does It Offer Ample Space For Growth: You want your business to grow and flourish, as does Rosetti Properties! Prior to signing your office lease, take into consideration the size of the space and the length of time of the lease. A space with a size that is “just right” for your business in its current state may be too small in only a few short years. Prior to signing your lease, think of your business’ growth plan and whether this space will still suit your needs during that growth.

Location Location Location: You’ve heard it before, but it’s true, location is key! While searching for your office space there are factors to keep in mind regarding location. The first factor to keep in mind is how easily clients, customers, and employees can access your building. If they have to maneuver through what feels like an obstacle course to get to the building, they may opt to find someone with similar services but is easier to get to. Another factor to keep in mind is safety. This doesn’t necessarily pertain to the building itself. When you, your staff or client leave the building do they feel safe? Keep in mind, it is possible that your staff may leave during the evening hours; will they feel secure walking through the parking lot?

We hope you found these tips to be helpful and they get you started off on the right foot. We’re certain to have the space you’re searching for, and we’d love to take you on a tour. Contact our office today to get started!
