How long have you been in business? Are you a new company? Whatever your situation is, you need to plan ahead and decide what type of lease (or rental agreement) you will agree to. For newer companies the best idea is to sign a shorter lease - like say 6-12 months (maybe even monthly if possible), because this will give you flexibility. If you find an amazing deal on a commercial office park that offers free move in, free months rent, or any other promotion, then you should consider that. On the other hand, if you have an established business that has a bright future, you should try to sign a long term rental lease - say 24 months or longer - since you will typically get a big discount on your lease.
