Karl’s Mortgage Calculator

When you start looking for office spaces you’ll realize that they aren’t cheap. Even for a small cramped up office space people charge a bomb. What can you do? It’s like Mark Twain said, “Buy land, they’re not making it anymore”. Since your startup capital is small you’ll need to crunch some numbers to see what you can afford. You need something affordable and yet it has to be elegant. Your employees won’t appreciate working in a dump. You’ll have to calculate exactly how much mortgage you can afford to pay, based on that you can start looking for places within your price range. Use Karl’s Mortgage Calculator to come up with a number you’re comfortable with. It’s better to work out the math beforehand than to do it later.

Global Banking and Finance Review

Before you make any large investment it’s best to do your homework. Check the market trends to see if it’s a good time to invest in real estate. If it’s not feasible to buy you can always rent. However, you can only make that decision based on any information. Read the Global Banking and Finance Review. It’s what company Presidents and CEO’s read, so you know it’s legit. It has all sorts of financial information that will be useful to an emerging entrepreneur, including real estate information. If you want an upper hand in the corporate world you need to be smart. And the only way you become smart is by reading. Guile and cunning only comes to the knowledgeable.

LoopNet Commercial Real Estate

Now that you’ve crunched some numbers and done your research it’s time to look for an office space. Hiring a real estate agent is for the uninitiated.

All you need is the LoopNet Commercial Real Estate app. If you’re looking for commercial properties for sale this app is your best bet. It has over 800,000 listings, so there are enough properties to go around. It uses your GPS locator to help you find properties near your location.

Now that you’ve found the office of your dreams it’s time to decorate it. Like I said before your employees care about the office they work in, even if you don’t. To keep the employee morale high you should invest a decent amount in interior designing. Even a small office can look spacious with the right design. Office Decorating Ideas is an app that has tons of suggestions for your office space. It has a diverse range of design ideas, from contemporary to classic. The app has a large collection of pictures that will get your creative juices flowing. You can pick elements from here and there and create your own design. Once your office is done you can even click a picture and upload it to the app. You know, to help others.

An office is the first thing you should tackle when you’re starting your business. There’s no point in setting up a game plan only to realize your office space can’t accommodate it. Instead of making the mould fit the object, you should make the object fit the mould. Once you’ve got your office problem sorted you can concentrate on other things. Your company isn’t going to start itself, is it? Having an office space will motivate you to get your company started, especially when things are looking bad.
