Commercial Property

Owning your own business is a challenge, and finding a place for your office or store can be intimidating, to say the least. As with residential real estate, you'll want to find a good location for your business. Location, location, location. It may be well-worn advice, but it's true. Not only should the site make sense for your customers, employees, storage, etc .... , you have to make sure the zoning fits the bill.

Use a Realtor. Ask them to explain the different types of leases you may have if you will be leasing a suite or office. There are many types of leases, but generally speaking, there are two common types of leases in the 717 area code. In a triple net lease, the lessee pays taxes, insurance, and maintenance in addition to the rent. In a gross lease, the lessee pays the rent and the lessor (normally the owner) pays the rest. Each situation is different, so make sure you understand all of your options. The building in this picture has two Suites available for lease. It's in a brand new place on Tristan Drive in Dillsburg (more info).
