Things to Consider When Touring Office Buildings

When you go on a building tour, you should take the opportunity to get a feel for the available space as well as the building. If touring many properties, you should take notes so that you remember what you liked most and least about each property. Here is a list of things to consider while you are touring:

  1. Building Location (Is this an ideal geographic location for you to do business?)
  2. Buildling Facade/Curb appeal (Is this the look of a building where you would want to do business?)
  3. Parking (Is there sufficient parking for your operational needs?)
  4. Size (Is the square footage appropriate for how you plan to use the space?)
  5. Layout (Is the space laid out in a way that is conducive to your operations?)
  6. Lighting (Is there sufficient lighting to support your use of the space?)
  7. Improvements (Is the space in reasonable condition and ready to use or would it require significant buildout?)
  8. What sort of tenants currently lease here?

We encourage adding to this list any additional considerations based on your company’s specific needs.
