Are you looking to rent a house, or perhaps rent an office or workspace? Before you do, you need to be aware of some problems worth consideration. We don’t mean to be buzzkills, but having all the information before making a huge decision is vitally important in making the right decision.
So let’s look at those potential problems of house rentals for home business owners.
The housing market right now greatly favors the renters/landlords, and there is a very good reason for that: there is a shortage of good places to rent. A shortage of supply means higher prices for those places that are available, and higher prices are never good for the renter/buyer.
On the flip side of the coin, there is a glut of industrial/commercial space to rent on the current market, and too much of a product generally means lower prices.
According to the Laws of Supply and Demand, then, we can summarize this about price: renting a home, not so good; renting an office/warehouse/workspace, good!
The shortage of homes to rent poses another problem: you most likely will not find what you need at the price you can afford. This is logical, isn’t it? The fewer an item you have the less likely that consumers can find something that meets their specific needs, and again the opposite is true when renting industrial property . . . it is much easier to find what you need at the price you can pay.
Both renting a house and renting an office share two other drawbacks: neither are flexible by nature and neither offer a solution for future growth. In the case of a house, if your family grows, the house doesn’t, and in the case of a business, if your business grows the office space does not match the growth.
What if there was a homes for lease alternative for home business owners?
You can bet that constructions experts and architects have noticed these problems, both in renting a house and leasing industrial space, and they have come up with a logical and creative solution: shipping containers! Welcome to the shipping container revolution!
There is no shortage of shipping containers. There are currently seven million of them, unused, discarded, filling up back lots around the world, and because they are unused they will be less expensive to lease/own. And because they are flexible in their use, and because they are easy to add on/extend, they match the needs of any growing family or growing business. Vertically or horizontally, it is no problem to add one container to another, making them the perfect answer to future growth. The perfect commercial shop for rent.
Shipping containers are the logical solution to so many problems facing the real estate world today, and they are the perfect solution to the problems facing so many young couples and start-up business owners, and that means they are the perfect solution for something like 40% of the U.S. adult population. Office business location alternatives that you can live with.
Think about it: inexpensive, flexible, eco-friendly, can be plopped down on any piece of property, easy to move . . . did we mention inexpensive?
