Where Do I Start?
Before Buying Land or a Space for Your Business, Call Focus Design Builders
You’re ready to start a business or move your existing business to a new space, but you have no idea where to start. You’re probably feeling excited, but also a little overwhelmed. The easy answer is to start with Focus Design Builders. We can guide you through the entire process from concept, to buying land, to completion — and anywhere in between. We’re a full-service commercial design-build company that can help you with every aspect of your project, from start to finish. And one of the best things you can do is to call us before you put an offer in on land or a space.
One of the most important decisions you’ll make is where to locate your business. You need to find a space that is the right size, in the right location, and within your budget. If you’re thinking of buying land, it’s important to consult with a design-build firm like Focus Design Builders beforehand.
We can help you assess the space to see if it will work with your concept and budget. We can also help you determine if buying land can support the type of building you want to construct. And, we can help you budget for the real estate purchase and the construction costs.
Here are just a few of the things we can help you with:
- Logistics: We can help you assess the logistics of the space, such as parking, loading docks, and traffic flow.
- Concept: We can help you refine your concept and make sure it is feasible within the constraints of the space and your budget.
- Budget: We can help you create a realistic budget for the project, including the cost of land, construction, and permitting.
- Barriers: We can identify any potential barriers to development, such as zoning restrictions or environmental concerns.
- Questions: We can answer any questions you have about the design-build process, from start to finish.
By calling Focus Design Builders early in the process, you can save yourself a lot of time and headaches. We can help you avoid costly mistakes and make sure your project is a success.
Top tips for buying land or finding the right space for your business:
- Consider your target market. Where are your customers located? What kind of neighborhood do they prefer?
- Make sure the space is the right size for your needs. You don’t want to outgrow your space too quickly, but you also don’t want to pay for space you don’t need.
- Think about the future. Do you plan to expand your business in the next few years? If so, make sure the space has room to grow.
- Consider your budget. How much can you afford to spend on rent or a mortgage? Keep in mind that you’ll also need to factor in the cost of utilities, insurance, and maintenance.
Once you’ve found a few potential spaces, it’s important to schedule a visit with a Focus Design Builders representative. We can help you assess the space and determine if it’s a good fit for your needs.
We can also help you answer any other questions you may have about the design, construction, or leasing process.
Here are some specific questions we can help you answer:
- Will the space work with my concept?
- Will the land support what I want to do?
- Will my budget work with the real estate purchase and the build?
- Are there any barriers I will need to overcome?
