3 Mistakes People Make When Choosing a Virtual Office Lender | 580 Executive CenterIn the digital age, when people are connected at lightning speeds from all over the world, the need for traditional offices is diminishing. A virtual office is a smart, cost-effective option for businesses that don’t have a need for a full-time office.


If you’ve decided to rent a virtual office, be sure to avoid these common mistakes people make when choosing a virtual office lender:


Not understanding what a virtual office can offer


Many people get a virtual office rental because they want a virtual address; but a virtual office can be so much more than that. With a virtual office, you will get a virtual receptionist, who can answer phone calls to your business and take messages. You also have access to workspace, either for yourself or a small number of employees, in the form of furnished offices with phone lines and internet connection.


Depending on the virtual office you choose, there are also a host of other amenities available. Many virtual offices have open conference rooms, which can be rented on as-needed basis. 24-hours building access, breakrooms and virtual assistants can also be available.


They don’t place importance on service and quality


You should never be unhappy with your virtual office – after all, the virtual office building exists to serve people just like you. Treat your virtual office lender just like any other business that wants to sell you a service. Expect to be treated well and for your needs to be important to them.


Similarly, make sure the virtual office has a professional atmosphere and quality employees. If you’re going to have the lender’s virtual receptionist answering your business’ calls, make sure the receptionist is up to your standards. After all, their voice can be a caller’s first impression of your business – don’t you want it to be a great impression? You also want the building to appear smart and neat, so choose a virtual office lender that takes pride in the building’s appearance.


They don’t ensure it’s a favorable lease


If you’ve dealt with traditional office property, you’re probably used to getting a mediocre deal at best on the lease. But with virtual offices, it should be all about you! A virtual office is meant to be convenient and cost effective, so make sure the price and terms are satisfactory to you. One of the main reasons to choose a virtual office over a traditional lease is the flexibility. Don’t get locked into a long-term deal if you don’t want it. Make the rental choice that’s right for you.
