Over the past few years, there’s been a rise in demand for temporary office space. This trend is especially strong in areas with vibrant, innovation-based economies: areas like Overland Park and Leawood.
What’s driving this trend? To start, recent changes have made long term leases less attractive for many businesses. Fast-scaling
startups, businesses in volatile markets, and companies with fluctuating
workforces are increasingly turning to short term, month-to-month office
leases. Meanwhile, day office rentals are increasingly in vogue among
professionals who work out of virtual offices or travel a lot for work,
allowing them to rent office space for a day or by the hour as needed.
While interest in temporary office space is strong in the region, supply has lagged behind demand. That can make it difficult to find the right space for your needs. With the arrival of Office Evolution Overland Park, businesses in Overland Park, Leawood, Olathe, and Lenexa have a new space for renting a day office or leasing a private office month-to-month.
How to Make the Most of a Temporary Office
Thinking of renting a short-term office in the area? Here
are three quick tips from our team on how to get the most value from your
- Prioritize functionality and ease-of-use when searching for a
short-term office space rental. When you rent a temporary office, you should be looking for a fully-furnished, ready-for-use workspace. That’s obvious enough when you’re renting a day office for a couple of hours, but it’s nearly as important on short term leases of a month or more. Try to find a space that requires as little upfront time and money to get up and running. The shorter the term of your lease, the heavier these upfront costs will fall on your business.
- Screen potential workspaces early for the different types of
leases they provide. When you’re researching short term office space rentals, one of the first things you should be looking for is the types of leases they provide. Some workspaces specialized in month-to-month rentals. Others focus more heavily on by-the-hour or by-the-day rentals. If you’re unsure which types of leases a workspace provides, contact them directly to find out. This is often the quickest and easiest way to simplify your search and narrow down your shortlist.
- Running into cost concerns? Try exploring other options for a
temporary workspace. Short term and temporary office rentals are often a great way to reduce total workspace expenses. But if you can’t find the type of office you need at a price point that’s friendly to your budget, you might want to look at different options for a temporary workspace, like joining a coworking space. At Office Evolution Overland Park, coworking memberships are a popular, budget-friendly alternative for
professionals and businesses who are looking for a temporary office or who
regularly rent day offices.
