Renting a space for a karate studio

When I setup my karate studio, it took me six months to find a suitable space to rent.

Along with private and group karate classes, I offer various styles of fitness training.

I required sufficient space to house exercise equipment and allow for twenty adults to stretch and workout. I needed permission to mount mirrors on the walls and hang heavy bags from the ceiling. The space had to include an office, bathroom, waiting room and areas that could be utilized for men and women to change and possibly shower. I was looking for a modern facility in an accessible location with a well-lit and sizable parking lot. I worked through a real estate agent and toured over a dozen different properties. There were problems with each location. Some of them appeared rundown while others were too small. The cheaper rental properties were situated in a questionable part of town and I couldn’t afford the expensive rent in the trendy areas. I finally found the ideal office space to rent. It provides all of the features I need to run a successful karate and fitness center. I moved in, set up my equipment, took sign-ups and started running classes. By the end of the first week, I was already having difficulties with the neighbors. My karate studio is located next door to a massage therapist. She doesn’t like the noise caused by my classes. My students punch speed bags and heavy bags, kick and flop each other on the floor. We practice defense against weapons and often play loud and energetic music. To elevate the heart rate, there’s intense aerobic exercise. I can see where this would disturb my neighbor, but I pay rent just like she does.

Unhappy with the landlord of rental property

I run a hair salon out of a rented office space in a business complex.

I am extremely happy with the location of my rental property.

I benefit from the foot-traffic of the neighboring businesses and enjoy quite a few walk-in clients. My salon is a short and easy drive from my home, and the square footage is just right for my requirements. I have my rented space set up perfectly with modern salon chairs, sinks, dryers and a manicure/pedicure area. There is a lovely waiting room where my clients can people-watch through the big windows and sip a cup of herbal tea. I have a faithful list of regular clients who are familiar and comfortable with my location. The last thing I want to do is close up shop and search for a new space to rent. However, my landlord is causing me major problems. As part of the rental agreement, the outdoor maintenance of the property is his responsibility. I am tired of taking care of trimming the shrubs, weeding the gardens and sweeping the parking lot. I don’t have time to shovel snow in the winter or water flowers in the summer. I certainly don’t want to mow the lawn or patch holes in the sidewalk. When I complained about the lack of upkeep, he threatened to raise my rent. I’ve spoken to the other tenants, and we are all in agreement. We refuse to pay more for a service that was supposed to be included in our rent. Hopefully, we can convince the landlord to fulfill his promises so that I don’t need to move.

Renting a space for personal training

I’ve always been dedicated to a healthy way of life.

I’ve practiced good nutrition and followed a conscientious physical fitness routine since childhood.

My goal was to become a personal trainer. I took all of the courses, passed all of the tests and got my certification. I took first aid and CPR training and invested in all of the proper insurance and business licensing. I thought the hard part was over and looked forward to starting my business and taking on clients. I needed to find the perfect place to set up my training center. Hoping to keep overhead as low as possible, I wasn’t looking for an enormous amount of square footage. Most of my training sessions would be one-on-one. I planned to hold some group classes that would be no larger than eight to ten people. However, I needed sufficient space for a variety of fitness equipment, including a treadmill, stationary bike, rowing machine, free weights and yoga mat. Obviously, I required a rental space with an office area, bathroom and a small changing room. I prefered to find a location to rent that would be visible from the main highway. To convey professionalism, I was searching for a modern, well-kept building. When I found what seemed like the perfect space to rent, I immediately put down a security deposit. For the first few months, I struggled to build my client list. By early summer, I felt good about my progress and growth of my business. It wasn’t until the weather changed that I realized the building’s air conditioner is extremely outdated. The cooling system can’t keep up with demand and my workout space quickly becomes overheated and uncomfortable.

Requirements for chiropractor’s office rental

I’m often carrying equipment from one office space to another

As a licensed chiropractor, my requirements for an office space aren’t all that demanding. I don’t need a lot of square footage or anything fancy. As long as the place is well maintained, clean and offers enough space for my table, I’m happy. My priority is that my practice is easily accessible to my patients. I prefer to be situated in an area where clients coming from all directions have no difficulty finding me. A sizable parking lot is helpful. I don’t want to rent an office space on the eighteenth floor of a building. I avoid properties with fancy entrances that include a whole bunch of stairs. The majority of my clients arrange appointments when they’re experiencing pain. They suffer from neck, back, shoulder, hip and knee issues. Muscle strains, stiffness, sore joints, injuries and arthritis are common complaints. The last thing I want is to cause my patients more difficulty and pain as they get inside my office. I’ve found office spaces to rent that appeared ideal at first glance. However, as I navigated the entrance, I discovered that the door to get inside was a challenge to open. The door was so heavy that I needed to give it an extra hard push. This won’t work for my practice. Plus, I work out of four separate locations. I’m often carrying equipment from one office space to another. I want it as easy as possible to get setup. Fortunately, I’ve managed to find office spaces for rent that not only offer everything I need but are within my price range. I refuse to overcharge my clients simply to cover the rent for fancy accommodations.

Renting an office to open a real estate agency

I worked hard to get my real estate license and was thrilled when I got hired by one of the larger companies.

I quickly realized that as one of the newer agents, I wasn’t offered the bigger or better jobs.

I was dealing with people who were interested in houses they couldn’t afford and wasting my time. I was selling homes in questionable neighborhoods, working long hours and not making any money. I decided I needed to branch out on my own. As a licensed real estate agent, I never would have expected that finding a suitable office space to rent would be the most challenging aspect. I have access to a wide range of listings and know the ins and outs of property leasing and purchasing. I wasn’t overly particular in my requirements. I hoped to add several more agents and was looking for sufficient square footage to accommodate half a dozen desks, a small break room and lavatory. I was concerned with the appearance of the building, as I wanted to project professionalism and expertise. Along with sufficient parking, my main priority was location. I hoped to have people driving by and see my sign. It took me over eight months to find a suitable office space to rent. I ended up taking an office on the third floor of a larger building. While this solution isn’t ideal or exactly what I was looking for, there are benefits. A building management company takes care of all of the maintenance inside and outside. Customers for all of the various businesses see my listing and get familiar with my name.

I must have a fireplace in my residence

When the two of us moved into our residence last year, I thought that I could do without a fireplace.

I seriously was used to having a wood burning fireplace because the residence I grew up in had one.

We certainly used the fireplace for heating our living room space because the furnace that we had wasn’t the best working around. In that house, we always had to use additional forms of heating to keep the temperature in the residence raised during the Wintertime. We used the fireplace, a wood burning stove, & also some electric oil heating machines here & there throughout the house. With all of those sources of heating, the residence stayed nice & cozy in the Wintertime, even though our furnace was ancient & terrible. But now, I am all grown up & my spouse & I have decided to buy our first residence! One of the things I was easily thrilled about with this residential purchase was the fact that the location has a brand new, state of the art heating & cooling machine. I was especially ecstatic to see that the two of us were going to be heating the location with a high efficiency furnace. But now that the weather is cooling off, I find that I truly miss my fireplace more & more. I didn’t honestly know it at the time the two of us bought our residence, even though I guess I truly need a fireplace in the residence to actually feel at home! It would entirely cost us a fortune to add an addition with a fireplace to the current residence & I guess my spouse won’t want to do it.

It’s not the same without a fireplace

When we moved into our beach property last year, I thought that I could do without a fireplace.

I was completely used to having a wood burning fireplace because the property I grew up in had one.

All of us easily used the fireplace for heating our residing area because the furnace system that we had wasn’t the nicest one in the world. In that property, we consistently had to use additional forms of heating to keep the temperature in the property raised during the cold season. All of us used the fireplace, a wood burning stove, and also a couple of little electric space heaters here and there throughout the property. With all of those sources of heating, the property honestly stayed nice and cozy in the cold season, even though our furnace was ancient and terrible. Now, I am all grown up and my husband and I have purchased our first house! One of the things I was gleeful about with this beach property purchase was the fact that the venue has a brand new, state of the art heating and cooling system. I was especially pleased to see that we were going to be heating the venue with a high efficiency furnace. But now that the weather is cooling off, I find that I miss our fireplace more and more. I didn’t guess it at the time we bought our property, however I suppose I really need a fireplace in the beach property to easily feel at home! It would undoubtedly cost us a large amount to add an addition with a fireplace to the current beach property and I guess my husband won’t want to do it.

I don’t think I can go on without a fireplace

When all of us moved into our dwelling last year, I thought that I could do without a fireplace.

I was entirely used to having a wood burning fireplace because the dwelling I grew up in had one.

We legitimately used the fireplace for heating our residing room because the gas furnace that all of us had wasn’t the greatest in the world. In that dwelling, all of us consistently had to use additional forms of heating to keep the temperature in the dwelling raised while in the winter. The lot of us used the fireplace, a wood burning stove, as well as also some little electric area furnaces here as well as there throughout the dwelling. With all of those sources of heating, the dwelling remained nice as well as cozy in the winter, even though our gas furnace was old as well as not very good. But now, I am all grown up as well as my fiance as well as I have purchased our first dwelling. One of the things I was gleeful about with this new home purchase was the fact that the locale has a brand new, state of the art heating as well as cooling appliance. I was especially ecstatic to see that all of us were going to be heating the locale with a high efficiency gas furnace. But now that the weather is cooling off, I find that I miss our fireplace more as well as more. I didn’t actually realize it at the time all of us purchased our dwelling, even though I suppose I easily need a fireplace in the dwelling to really feel at home! It would easily cost us a huge amount to add an addition with a fireplace to the lake dwelling as well as I know my fiance won’t go for it.
