Using your home for a home-based business is a great idea, but there may come a time when you need to consider a professional office space for lease instead of using a spare bedroom for an office. This article will look closely at that consideration and help you to make a decision about office space for rent.

Now let’s look at several reasons why home-based business owners should consider office space for lease.
Has your business outgrown your home?
This is the #1 reason why home-based business owners eventually look for an office space for lease. Their small businesses perform beyond their wildest expectations, and it is no longer feasible to conduct business from the living room, dining room, garage or spare bedroom. This is a great problem to have. It means you are successful. It also means you need to call a commercial real estate agent pronto.
Does your home really present a professional appearance?
Seriously? How many homes really give off a professional vibe? Not many! Pets running to and fro . . . kids clothes piled up in a corner . . . breakfast dishes unwashed in the sink . . . shall we go on? If you have a home-base business, you know exactly what we are talking about. Your home may have been perfect for a small ETSY business, or a start-up paid for with a shoestring budget, but at some point you became successful, and at some point clients started showing up at your home. It is at that point that you need to start shopping around for quality commercial property to rent.
Will your sales increase with a change in venue?
Chances are the answer to this question is YES! Yes, your sales will increase once you find the perfect office space for lease. Professional offices give off professional vibes. They are located in areas where walk-in and drive-up business occurs. They offer advantage your spare bedroom can never offer.
Are you presenting the best opportunity for your clients and customers?
Which is more convenient for your clients, a drive to the suburbs in a housing development, or a drive into a business district they pass by every single day? Clients are all about convenience. Clients want a transaction to be easy for them. They do not want to “drive slowly for children at play” or have to drive five miles out of their way to do business with you.
If you want to play with the big boys, in the real business world, you need to move your business out of your home and into a professional setting.
