Finding a shop for rent to fit in your budget
This is the main goal, right? You need a shop for rent which has the necessary electrical hook-ups for your tools, which has space to grow, and which is a price you can afford.
Easier said than done in most cities. We have been doing this for quite a few years, and the number one complaint/lamentation we have heard over the years is that industrial property for rent is too expensive for small business owners, and that complaint is valid in most cases. Most industrial property for rent was built with big businesses in mind. It is ten-thousand, fifteen-thousand, twenty-thousand square feet or larger, and what small business needs that much room? What electrician needs ten-thousand square feet? What mechanic is going to need twenty-thousand square feet? It is almost as though the industry is conspiring against the small business owner. One-man enterprises are priced out of the market before they even hang their “open” sign, and we find that to be sad and discouraging.
Small businesses are the backbone of any economy. It should be easy, not hard, for a small business owner to find affordable industrial property for rent. Everyone in the community benefits when small businesses thrive, and that’s what we believe at RDS Real Estate, and that is the reason we developed the Fort Worth Design District.
But more about that later . . . what if you don’t live in Fort Worth? How can you find a shop for rent, or a warehouse for rent, you can afford, in a city where small shops for rent do not exist?
We turn your attention to a concept called coworking, and a related concept called flex space.
Both of these concepts came about because of limited budgets for small businesses. They are both based on the theory of sharing industrial space. In other words, if all you have to choose from are large, expensive industrial properties, then perhaps two or more companies should share one property.
If you are looking for a shop for rent, but the smallest shop for rent is fifteen-thousand square feet, how about sharing that space with two or more small businesses, thus making it affordable for each business owner?
It’s just something to think about as you look around your city. It has been done successfully in other cities, so why not where you live?
