Is the austin, tx market struggling enough to be able to negotiate any nnn (retail) comercial lease terms?

Not sure what the current market rate is for Austin, Tx 78757 location and I may want to lease in this area. It would be a very small retail space anywhere from 300-500 sqft, so not sure how that would play into what I could ask for (free rent, lower rate, lower additional expenses?) Also, what would they be unwilling to negotiate in this market?

I am a Commercial Tenant Representative here in Austin. We represent business owners looking to negotiate new or renewal leases. The currnet Austin market is ideal for tenants looking for good deals. You have probably heard the phrase, "Everything is negotiable". So regarding your question about free rent and lower rates, that can be negotiated on any deal. It's just going to depend on the particulars of what Landlord and property you are dealing with. The leverage position you are in is the fact that there are listings out there. Landlords know this is a competitive market and want to attract Tenants. However, keep in mind there is a price point that no property owner will go below. So have a realistic idea of the market area you want to be in.
