I mostly focus on Web site development topics on this blog, but I’ll take a break from that this post so I can solicit some advice from the Internet community about an important business decision.
Our lease is up in December, and I’m considering whether to move offices. In case you’ve never been, we’re in an office just across the freeway from the core of downtown Bellevue. The office is fine. It meets our needs, which narrowly defined, are a space to fit our staff (4 people, with room for two more should we need the space). It has two private offices so I and my project manager can speak on the phone without disturbing others. There’s a conference room, but it is in another building and impractical to use.
The building’s location is good — just off the freeway. Appearance wise, it doesn’t make the best impression. There is no elevator to our 2nd story office and the entrance is outside. We have clients by our office once or twice a month.
I’m looking at moving our office to a higher-rise building that makes a better first impression. I’m looking in downtown Bellevue. Rents are a lot more expensive, but perhaps the office’s location and appearance might attract more clients. What do you think? Should we stay or go?
