1. Send a Property Enquiry request form.
Click the Property Enquiry button and send us your basic search requirements so we can get the process started right away. We will typically contact you within the hour during the business day. If you prefer, feel free to give us a call by 2854 2856.
2. Determine Your Ideal Space.
Via the phone we will interview you about what your perfect office would look like. Together we will discuss your ideal size, configuration, location, building quality, parking needs, budget and future growth projections. This will help us conduct a custom search for you.
3. We Locate the Best Options
Your office specialist will use your criteria to identify the best properties. PrimeOffice generates a custom market survey within 24 hours including pictures, addresses, rates and floor plans.
4. Tour Office Spaces
After you receive your market survey, together we will consider the options and choose the most desirable properties—down to a target 5-10. Your agent will do all the legwork and set up an office tour for you to see the spaces in person. We will be your consultant on the tour, asking the questions you need answers to: What is the parking ratio? How much is after hours A/C? What are the building hours of operation?
5 . Request Lease Proposals
After we identify the best 2-3 properties, your agent will submit a request for proposal (RFP) to each of the landlords. This will help the property owners tailor their lease proposal to your size, term, and build-out requirements.
6. Compare Proposals
With lease proposals in hand, your consultant can make an Apples-to-Apples comparison and show you how each office space will affect your bottom line.
7. Negotiate the Business Terms
Your negotitor will submit a Letter of Offer on your behalf with more favorable terms to your top two choices. The landlord will respond with a revised lease proposal. This negotiation exchange may happen several times until an agreement is reached.
8. Finalize the Contract
After you have agreed to and signed the revised lease proposal, the landlord will produce the first draft of the lease for your review. We strongly encourage you to use the council of your attorney and your office broker to sift through the legal terminology. It is important to coach your lawyer to work with the landlord to come to a mutually beneficial agreement, since the lease document will be the basis of your relationship with the landlord for years to come.
9. Prepare to Occupy
With a lease signed and finalized, we will need to approve the final build-out plan for construction, choose paint and carpet, schedule movers, install wiring and purchase furniture. Your agent should be able to save you time by recommending the most professional vendors for your needs. It is a good idea to put these steps into motion while you are finalizing the contract to make sure you can move in on schedule.
