Commercial spaces serve a very important purpose for businesses in Ghana. Accra Central is one of the places with the highest number of office spaces in the capital. There are other neighbourhoods that also serve both residential and commercial purposes. With the increasing number of businesses in the country, commercial spaces are highly sought after.
There are a number of features that anybody should look out for when renting an office space. Just like seeking houses and apartments, it is also important to look for a number of features when renting a commercial space. So, what are some of the features you should be seeking before you rent a property? Here are a few of them:
Just like residential properties, location is very important when it comes to renting a commercial space. Your clients and employees are the people you should consider first. Will they be able to reach the space without any hassle? Are there eating places, easy access to transportation or directions for people to find the space? If the answer to all these questions is yes, then the location is good for your company.
The price of a property is one of the reasons people either buy or rent an office space. The budget for a property should not be too small or too big, but should be just the right price. Again, it is important to ask about any hidden costs and charges, so you do not get surprised when you make your choice. Will you be able to renew your contract when the time is due? Again, like renting an apartment, it is important to compare the price of other properties in the area before making a choice.
The size of the space is also important. How many people will be working in the office with you? Do you plan on recruiting more people in your company? What your business does is important and directly related to the amount of space you will need. Do not forget your employees need private spaces to meet with clients. They also need places to rest and have their meals.
How much infrastructure are you provided with? Currently, almost every business makes use of internet services. How good is your Internet service? Do you know the Internet service providers? Has the cost been factored into the rent or will you pay for it each month? Are there other services like cleaning, maintenance charges and other fees that might add up? It is good to enquirer before you take the property.
Branding is very important for companies, especially the creative ones. Will you be allowed to brand the office space to your own specification? What about photos? Are there any restrictions that might prevent your company from reaching its aims and ambitions?
These are questions you should ask before making this decision about renting or buying a commercial space.
