Could a coworking office space be a good solution for you as a real estate investor?
Coworking or shared, social style office spaces have become a hot trend, with many new options popping up around the country. They might have begun with tech startups in mind but are now widely used by a whole array of entrepreneurs and industries, including real estate investors. So is it for you?
There are surely many benefits of coworking as an office solution; networking opportunities, low cost office space, a professional business address, credible and focused meeting space, and free promotion.
These coworking spaces can now be found all across the United States. You might like one close to you for full time use or prefer to take advantage of one further away with a more prestigious address if you won’t actually use the space regularly.
