When leasing commercial space you may hear a lot of new Lease terms such as cash flow, cap rate, property taxes, gross leases, NNN lease, common area maintenance, etc. If you are not familiar with this terminology then it would be a good idea to hire an experienced agent. The team of professionals at Q4 Real Estate is here to help answer those questions and more.

Commercial leases are calculated on a price per square foot because most commercial rental properties can be divided or made into one larger space. The property owner or it’s real estate professionals can’t tell you what your total monthly lease payments will be however, until the size of the space is determined.

Understanding How Landlords Quote Rates

Most lease contracts will be triple net leases (NNN), meaning the business tenant must pay a base rate + NNN (taxes, insurance, common area maintenance). Landlords quote lease rates differently depending on the type of real estate investment, state/city located, or just their preference. In most cases retail space such as retail and office space will be quoted as yearly rates (e.g. $35 + $10nnn).
