HOW ARE LEASE RATES CALCULATED FOR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY?

Commercial property lease rates are typically based on the annual cost per square foot of the leased space.

To determine the monthly rent for a property, just multiply the quoted rent per square foot by the number of square feet being leased. The resulting number is the annual rent payable under the lease without any other adjustments to it. The annual rent should then be divided by twelve to arrive at the monthly rent figure.

Gross and net leases are two different ways of quoting rent. A gross lease means that the stated rental rate includes the major expenses from real estate taxes, property insurance, and common area maintenance and that no additional rent for those items is required to be paid. With an absolute gross or full-service lease, the rate will include basic utilities.

An NNN or triple net lease is where the rent is quoted as a base rent net of, or not including, the expenses for real estate taxes, building insurance, and common area maintenance. These expenses are an extra charge over and above the base rent, as well as the utilities. A tenant will typically pay for its phone and internet services under any of these lease types.
