It can be difficult to find the exact right space for you to start or relocate a business. That is why we often see start-ups or small companies camping out in old houses, apartments or garages. Even bigger companies sometimes prefer to construct their own facilities because the ones that exist don’t suit them. There is no need to despair however; if you are looking for a place, this is the best way to find it.
Search the Cyberspace
What with chat groups, social media groups, websites dedicated to property transactions and many other resources online, finding an office space Hong Kong to buy shouldn’t be too hard. Start off with a search on some very basic keywords to help you understand what the property market is like. Then specify it a bit more by region and other requirements like space, view, amenities and cost. It is very likely that the first search itself will yield some promising results because search engines on the internet are now tooled to adapt to an individual’s search patters and produce the most accurate results as per the searcher.
Call a Friend
You would be surprised by how many sales happen because “someone knew someone.” Even though we don’t think to talk to them, our social circle may actually have connections and information that can lead to a pretty sweet office rental. They may have just vacated a place or know somebody who has vacated a place; they may have seen a ‘for sale’ sign; or they may know someone who is looking to unload a building. Too often we are held back by pride and we forgo our friends and family in favour of a professional broker, and we miss out on the deal of a lifetime.
Help Them Find You
One tactic that most people don’t consider is to let the ‘seller’ come to you. In other words, you have to take out an advertisement in a newspaper or place an ad on a property website informing anyone interested that you are looking for a place. A surprising number of sellers actually browse the digital yellow pages looking for buyers because when the ‘need’ has been established on both sides previously, then there is little to argue afterwards. Don’t be too specific in your ads however as that is a major turn-off for most people; instead, give a rough estimate of the size of the space you are looking for and a preferable locale so that anyone with property that matches your criteria can contact you.
