This is one of those questions we receive about once per week: can you rent an office suite only when you need it? We have an answer for you in this article, and we also invite you to call us at (817) 439-3224 with any other questions about commercial property for rent.
What you need is coworking space
The quick answer to the aforementioned question is yes, and the process of renting an executive office when you need it is called coworking.
Coworking opportunities are cropping up all over the United States. There are several reasons for coworking, and there are several advantages to renting a coworking space.
The main reason for renting an office space for a short period of time is simply to socialize with others in a work environment. People can only handle isolation for so long before they find a need to actually work in close proximity with other people. As wonderful as a home-based business is, it is also a lesson in isolation, and sooner or later most home-based business owners express the need to work in a business community of some sorts.
They may also need a professional look to their home-based business, a place where they can meet with important clients without having the family dog shed on them. A coworking space is the perfect solution. The advantage of renting an office suite for a short period of time is obvious: the cost is minimal. You only rent for a week or a month, thus keeping your overhead to a minimal, but at the same time you are able to work with other people in a creative setting.
And that is the other major advantage to coworking, the opportunity to work with others who are in business, to share each other’s energy and creativity. For a week or a month, the isolation blues are kicked to the curb, and those who we have talked to say that coworking is an adrenaline rush and the exact boost they needed.
Is coworking expensive?
It depends on what you consider expensive to be. Some coworking spaces can be rented by the day, some by the week, while others are monthly rentals. A weekly office space rental might run you $100, while a monthly office rental might be $400. Is that expensive when you consider the shot in the arm it provides?
