To determine the annual cost per square foot divide the annual rent amount by the square footage or \$24,000 by 1,500. The annual cost per square foot is thus \$16. To determine the monthly rate, divide the annual square footage by 12 or the monthly rental amount by the total square footage (16/12 or \$24,000/1,500=1.33).

It means 42 cents per square foot per month, so it would be \$5.04 (Five Dollars and Four Cents) per square foot per year. If you have 1,000 square feet then you would pay \$5,040.00 per year. :)

Juanita is correct, but you also need to know if that is Gross, Modified Gross, or NNN (Triple Net) before you can determine you total annual obligation.
