Owners of growing businesses will most likely decide whether buying or leasing an office space is the right path. This is a challenging question to answer, considering the countless pros and cons of each decision. In this case, the business owner should carefully weigh these advantages and disadvantages of buying or leasing an office space.

To help you decide better, here are a few of the arguments for and against buying or leasing: 

Advantages of Buying an Office Space


  • Fixed Cost. Getting a long-term mortgage term for your commercial property can help your business project clear and fixed costs.
  • Tax Deductions.If you decide to buy a commercial property instead of finding an office space for lease Houston, purchasing and running the property can help you with your tax deductions.
  • Additional Source of Income. If you own the entire building or have a spare room, you can let the office space on lease. It can get you an additional source of income for your business.
  • Retirement Savings. The good thing about real estate and commercial spaces is that most of the time, their value increases. If you own one and you want to sell it later, the proceeds can be your retirement fund.


Disadvantages of Buying an Office Space


  • Little Room for Flexibility. Your new business may soon meet unexpected expenses and as it grows bigger. You may not get enough space to house new team members or necessary equipment, forcing you to move to another property and sell the old one.
  • High Upfront Costs. Compared to leasing a property, buying a commercial space will require more upfront fee. Aside from that, you will also have to take care of maintenance costs, along with appraisal, improvement, and property cost. 


Advantages of Leasing an Office Space


  • Prime Property. If you’re leasing, you can choose a great area with a high image and a fantastic location. If you operate an image and location-dependent business like restaurants or retail, leasing options are more affordable.
  • More Working Capital. If you lease, you won’t have to tie your money to real estate, thus giving your business more opportunities to respond in the market. Your borrowing capacity will also not be limited compared to buying a commercial space.


Disadvantages of Leasing an Office Space


  • Variable Costs. The downside with renting is that your landlord may unilaterally increase your rental cost. They may also make the rental fee higher when your lease expires.
  • No Equity. When leasing, you are funding your landlord’s retirement instead of yours. You are just making monthly expenses without getting anything tangible other than the use of the office space. 



Honestly, no hard and fast rule will provide a clear cut answer to the question of whether or not you should buy a property. More often than not, the decision will depend on the combination of personal circumstances, tax, and financial situation.

As you explore your options, it’s wise to take the help of a financial planner and real estate agent like Office Finder. They will help you with the process and help you find the right office space for lease in Houston.

Taking a risk is an essential part of the business. However, if you and your team’s future is on the line, taking risks without guidance and calculation is akin to economic suicide. Seek the help of experts and find a wise and sound business decision.
