There is no fixed answer. It depends on the availability of space in that town, combined with the amount of vacant space in the target building, and the quality of the tenant prospect. I try to put the free month(s) throughout the lease, so the landlord doesn't have to bite the bullet up front. (i.e.-like in a 5 year lease, give month 13 and 39)

A rule of thumb in this market is to ask for 1 month of free rent for each year of term. This equals a 9% discount in the rental rate.
