Let’s take a look at the primary costs of an office space for rent, and then we will look at a couple alternatives in the Fort Worth Design District.
Basic cost of an office space for lease
The basic cost is the advertised cost, the price everyone sees on the advertisements i.e. office space for lease for only $1200 per month, or office for rent for as low as $2.00 per square foot. For sure, this is an important cost figure, but it is only part of the story, and a business owner needs all of the facts and figures at hand in order to make an informed decision. Which brings us to related, secondary costs of renting office space.
Related costs include utilities. Related costs include WiFi hook-up. Related costs include all other costs associated with moving in, decorating, obtaining licenses and permits, and on and on and on.
In some radical situations, the related, additional costs can exceed the monthly lease payment. It is not our job to scare you off, but it is our job to make you aware of what you are agreeing to when you sign a lease contract. Have all the facts. Know all of the costs. And then, fully informed, make an intelligent decision based upon your operating budget. Eliminate emotions from the discussion. This is all about whether you can afford the property or not. The health of your business depends upon the answer to that question.

By far, the best option for anyone looking for an office space for lease, or office warehouse for rent, in the Fort Worth area, is at Box Office Warehouse Suites in the Fort Worth District.
