Businesses seek shared office space to lease through the Downturn

January 2009 started on a very positive note for the shared market with the enquiries and renewal deals increasing radically as a direct result of the economic uncertainty. Businesses are seeking short term and flexible office space to rent for a year or two, leaving on hold long lease plans until the global economic situation gets better. So while the general climate of commercial real estate is tough, business center operators get busier and offer great rates to attract more and more tenants.

Any businesses looking for a prestigious address and a great office deal should look in Manhattan. As confirmed by US brokers such as Colliers, office rents are currently at their lowest level since 2001, and businesses can move into a Manhattan location for as little as $700 per month or less.

Business centers are taking the shared office market to another level, offering a month’s rent free to tenants for a 12 month lease, free use of meeting room and much more. The packages offered include several services such as receptionist, technical support, daily cleaning, fully equipped offices, internet and phones, so tenants only have to concentrate on their business.

For a top quality space at the best office market rate, businesses can turn to brokers such as Search Office Space, executive suite specialist, for free and impartial advice.
