how do you figure out commercial property lease rates?

Would someone break down all the factors that go into a lease rate pricing by property type?

Charles, the lease rate, just like the purchase price is determined by basic economics; what is someone willing to pay. To best determine the current lease rates, I would drive around the area of the subject property to find out what the current lease rates are going for (you can also search in loopnet for leases by property type and zip code). Bottom line, there is no formula to determine a lease rate. The current rate will be determined by basic economics

Lease rates are determined by several factors such as; property type, property type supply & demand, property value and finishes, desired lease length, lease terms the company's financials, if there are improvements needed to be made to name a few. You'll have to combine all these factors and run a financial analysis to determine an appropriate lease rate for that particular property.
