Example of cost comparison for your search

Finding the right lease can be tricky. Rents vary from triple net to full service gross, lease start dates never seem to line up perfectly, different landlords offer different terms, tenant improvement allowances change from building to building, and plenty of other sneaky tactics are used to disguise what you're actually paying for office space. It can be frustrating. Let us show you exactly how much you are paying so the decision is as quick and easy as possible.
