To find industrial units for rent, check commercial property listing sites such as LoopNet, and filter listings to find a rental that fits your needs. Make a comparative analysis of similar properties, and read the pro forma copy of the lease before committing to a property, advises Forbes. Ensure you understand the full expense picture, and that the zoning of the industrial property matches your intended use, recommends Austin Tenant Advisors.
Enter a search location on LoopNet, and choose the Industrial Properties category before clicking on the Search button. Alternatively, use the Advanced Search tab to specify a region, state, city or county, and filter industrial properties by space available, building size, rental rate per square foot and status of a listing. View photos of listed industrial units, and preview their features to make an informed choice.
Find a good rental deal by negotiating the terms of the lease with a property owner or manager. Ask the owner to include add-on clauses in the contract to allow room for you to make adjustments should your long-term business strategy change, instructs the U.S. Small Business Administration. Comparing the details of selected properties, such as the lease price, square footage and incremental expenses, helps you narrow your search, states Forbes.
