It was a couple of months ago that Inc. Magazine covered a topic most of us in the DC Metro Area are already familiar with: “Washington, D.C. Office Space Most Expensive in U.S.”
It may not have been breaking news to us, but it was a good reminder as to exactly why it feels like leases and rates for office space are so incredibly high….because they ARE high! In fact, landlords are not lowering rates either. Instead, lease holders are continuing to pay pre-negotiated and annual increases and pass-throughs for building maintenance and local taxes.
As rates increase in the strong DC metro market, Metro Offices is able to negotiate very favorable long term leases that benefit our clients. So while rents do increase, the key is that Metro’s client companies get the benefit of our market position.
We pride ourselves on offering top-quality office space in prestigious locations on-demand, which means you have the advantage of forgoing mortgages and top dollar leases for permanent office space. There’s no need for a permanent office space in the most expensive area in the nation as long as your business takes advantage of DC Telework Solutions and on-demand office space.
It’s the best of both worlds. Keep productivity high and office space costs as low as possible, while still having access to a professional workspace or meeting room when you need it.
There are so many great things about the DC Metro Area. Perhaps the high cost of real estate is worth it? Whether you agree or not, we can all agree that it benefits your business to have a professional office space in a prestigious location, and that is where Metro Offices can help you to meet your business needs without requiring you to pay for some of the most expensive permanent office space in the nation.
