Check Out the Area
Explore the area where you’re thinking about buying an office and look at things like crime rates. Crime rates for an office property will tell you how much money you need to invest in security for your the location. It can also affect the value of the property in the future.
In addition to crime statistics, determine the level of funding that the area received in recent years.
