We know the process of setting up your own business can be a stressful one. That’s why we’ve put together our ultimate guide for renting a medical centre room in Sydney.
Where your premises are located is one of the most important factors when it comes to establishing your business. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you begin your property search.
Closely related to location is budget. When searching for a room to rent, ensure you have worked out a good business plan and know what you can afford.
This may mean a bit of homework before you begin, and getting your financials in order. But in the long run, it’s worth it for the stress it will save you. Consider how you may be able to save costs, particularly as you start up and if there are areas where you can reallocate money. For example, many health professionals are opting to forgo the expense of a receptionist in favour of digital programming or handling aspects of the business personally.
As you consider your budget, it is worth looking into the different rental arrangements around. Traditional leases tend toward a 3-5 years, which can mean you’re locked into making that property work well for your business, for a longer period of time. If COVID has taught us anything, it’s that situations beyond your control can mean a change in the workplace. With a short term lease you can have flexibility and affordability in one.
For ultimate flexibility ensure you consider health specific co-working spaces. These typically come already equipped, and offer a range of lease packages. Everything from a few days a week, to longer-term exclusive use leases. Investigate what options are available in your area. Because of the already equipped nature of co-working spaces they are a fantastic option for the budget-conscious practitioner.
As you begin your property search its important to consider what amenities you need for your business to function well. Here are a few to consider essential:

This saves time and stress when it comes time to switch things up.
Knowing the answers to these questions from day one helps you to equip your business well for the future.
