Shop rent $$$

I believe I will also post this in the lawn care section. I have a empty building that I'm not using and I have had some interest in people asking about renting it. I am wondering what it is worth a month. Its is 60'x90' 16' tall steel building, two overhead doors, lights, air compressor, heat, 1/2 acre parking lot, and I could build a office and bathroom. Just wondering what this would be going for in different areas.

Thanks for the help. The location is pretty good, the condition of the building is perfect.

real estate and rentals are a very geographic thing. Just like the going rates for mowing and plowing. an office and bathroom would make it more marketable. charge what you think is fair for your area. anything is better than nothing is you're not using it. good luck

My area is getting around $5.00 a sq ft. This is no water, no drain, no office, no bathroom. 3 phase electric. Gas is tempted in. YOur expense to purchase a heater. One other shop in my area is going for $7.50 a sq ft. In fact building next to my shop is being rented for that. In floor heat, bathroom, small office, phone, internet, hot/cold water, floor dain, walk in door and two 14 x 14 OH doors, 3 phase, air compressor. Owner pays utilities.

Is this $5.00 a sq ft a year?

Most likely each month. At least that is the way it is here.

Most likely per year, no way anyone is getting 5k per month for 1000 sq ft unless you're talking prime retail space.

For a 5400 sq ft building where I am you'd be able to probably get 3500/month. But that's being in the suburbs of a large city.
