Gettin' Real: A Real Estate Blog

Many people say they don't really feel like an adult until they buy their first home. It is a huge step. Rather than letting a landlord make all important repairs, you take on this responsibility yourself. You also get to build equity in the home over time, which can be a rather smart investment. At the same time, buying your first home can be a little intimidating. You may have questions about applying for a mortgage, setting a budget, and shopping efficiently. We hope to answer those questions with our helpful content. Your real estate agent is a good source of information, and so is this blog.

5 Elements To Help Your Leased Office Space Welcome Visitors

The right leased office space is an important component for those working remotely or running a business from their home. But what comprises the right office space when you regularly entertain clients, partners, and visitors? Here are five of the most important elements to include. 

1. Space. Certainly, you need enough room to work comfortably and to receive guests. The office should have two separate places to meet with visitors. The first is a desk-based meeting setting with plenty of room for multiple visitors to face your work area. The second spot should be a separate area such as a table or lounge chairs where you can huddle as equals. 

2. Personality. What does your office space say about you? Personality comes not only from decor and accessories, but it also comes from the environment around the office. Something as simple as a window to the outdoors can give an office a bit of spark or hominess. A cooperative space with plenty of vibrancy and modern touches also makes your business feel like it's staying on the cutting edge. 

3. Technology. Technology in the office is more important than over. You should be able to easily tap into all your resources — computers, cloud-based files, mobile devices, and equipment — during any meeting. The modern worker also needs good wireless connections, audio-visual technology, and a nice backdrop to meet with clients and others remotely through videoconferencing. 

4. Access. How easy is it to reach and move around your office? Taking potential customers through winding back corridors and past every other business in the building could give people the impression that you can't afford a good spot. It also increases distractions that take away from their purpose with you. Once in the office, traffic flow should be straight, unimpeded, and easy. 

5. Comforts. A few comforts make meetings more enjoyable and often more productive than an industrial or cold atmosphere. Space to set up two upholstered chairs provides a casual meeting space. Not having visitors sit cramped around your desk encourages longer and more open meetings. And room to put in a small coffee station or even a mobile bar helps break the ice with guests. 

As you consider office spaces for lease, consider how things look and feel to guests and clients. The result will be a space that works for you and works for your visitors no matter what business you're discussing.
