The capital outlay is less than a down payment, preserving a cash flow for other business needs. Also lease payments for businesses represent tax deductions. Plus, maintenance are generally much lower for non-owners.

There are many factors that come into choosing retail spaces for lease in the Washington metropolitan area, of course. There’s the amount of space needed to comfortably operate in, the cost per square foot, neighborhood, proximity to Metro transit and many other variables. The live work and play models that have become so popular in the region also come into play—positioning a retail space near to both residences and entertainment can add dramatically to customer appeal.

From Alexandria to Arlington and from Bethesda to DC, retail spaces for lease will continue to be a cornerstone element in Washington Metro’s continued growth and evolvement. So choose a community and browse away! To learn more, call District Partners at Compass, 202-798-3600.
