If you want to know why townhomes for rent are expensive, the answer can be summed up in three simple words: supply and demand!
If you want to know why a townhome is a terrible option for a home business, the answer can be summed up in three simple words: not flexible enough!
So let’s talk about both, and then let’s talk about a logical solution to both problems.
The first is a fairly simple thing to understand. There is currently a housing shortage in many parts of the nation, and a shortage of any product or commodity generally drives the price of that commodity upwards. In other words, a shortage of homes means more expensive homes on the market. The problems with affordable apartments is that there are few available.
Which brings us to the second statement, that a townhome is a terrible option for a home business; twenty percent of adults in the United States have a home business…in other words, either part-time, or full-time, they work from home. Working from home has its limitations for sure, the first of which is limited space. If a man’s home is his castle, then a man’s home-based business, by its very nature, causes a crowding issue within that castle. A home business needs an office. A home business needs space for inventory. Each of those needs naturally shrink the size of the living space, and as the business grows, the living space diminishes.
The natural conclusion that can be drawn from these two points is this: why pay higher prices for a townhome when part of the reason for your move is to provide space for your home business? You are, essentially, paying more for living space which will diminish with each year you are in business. Does that make good business sense to you?
So what can a home business owner do?
There is a new revolution in this country and that is the shipping container revolution. Builders have found, as have developers, that refurbishing a recycled shipping container is much less expensive than building a warehouse, office, or other commercial property from scratch using traditional wood or steel framing. Lower construction costs mean, naturally, lower prices for consumers, lower to the point where it is something that really needs to be considered by someone with a growing small business i.e. home business.
