Capitalize on Steel Office Buildings

Collect Rents Instead of Paying Rents by Leasing Office Space

As we discussed in our last post, all growing businesses someday demand larger office buildings. Business owners must choose to find an appropriate space to lease— or to construct their own office building.

Building a dual-purpose structure presents several great benefits.

First, the income from rental unit or units helps offset the cost of a new building. Secondly, you are on hand to be sure your property treated well.

Owning commercial rental property provides multiple future options:

  • If your business continues to grow, you simply expand into all or part of the rental space when the tenant’s lease expires.
  • Should your business experience economic setbacks, downsizing your office allows you to lease the additional area, creating more income.
  • When you retire, the rental space continues to produce income.
  • Even if you sell your business, you continue to collect rent from the new owner and remaining tenants.

The rents you pay leasing office space disappear. Owning your own property is an investment for your future.

Why Steel Office Buildings?

Pre-engineered steel systems provide distinct advantages to investors constructing low-rise office buildings.

FLOOR PLAN FLEXIBILITY:  You need to be able to adapt the rental space to an incoming tenant’s specific needs. Clear span steel structures simplify build out and remodeling. Without the need for load-bearing walls, new configurations of the floor plan are unlimited.

LOW OPERATING COSTS:  Properly insulated, prefabricated metal buildings cut utilities in half. Steel buildings do not require expensive termite treatments. Inorganic steel does not foster mold and mildew problems. Steel buildings need very little maintenance. The fire-resistant properties of commercial-grade steel earn much lower insurance rates. Steel buildings retain their value and beauty for decades longer than wood structures, so your investment remains secure.
