When it comes to searching a listing site, there are a few things you need to arm yourself with to make the hunt seamless. Learn a few tips on how to search Spacelist like a pro in this mini-blog and find your space sooner!
Know what you are looking for:
Give some serious thought to what your needs and wants are. Consider the size, location, and amenities and then decide what are the non-negotiables and what are nice-to-haves. This list will be helpful to you as you search. Keep it beside you for reference to keep you on track.
Start off with location and price point. These are no-brainers and can have a big impact on your search results. Go back to your original list for reference. If your search comes back with too many options, you can narrow it down a bit by becoming more specific. However, if the opposite is true, jump back to your list and see what are just ‘wants’ and start broadening your search.
If this is your first time:
Do a bit of research ahead of time to understand commercial real estate lingo and best practices. Understanding the industry standards will assist you while you search. For example: knowing the different lease rates and lease types (We have five to choose from – Direct, SubLease and then Hot Desk, Dedicated Desk, and Private Office, which refer to co-working space). Knowledge is power!
When in doubt:
Talk to a professional. At Spacelist we can connect you with a tenant rep in your area (if there is one available). All you have to do is fill out our tenant rep form. Fill the form out completely to give your rep the most information to assist in their search.
