I am thinking about starting a co-working space in New England (USA) and I was wondering if it is better to buy a building or lease an existing building. I am also looking to buy a house right now and was wondering if I could roll a co-working space and house into the same property somehow, but zoning and codes seem complicated. So I guess I am wondering - is it better to get a business loan and buy a commercial space or is it better to find an existing venue and rent? How have others managed to finance their property? I would love your feedback as I try to get started!
Thanks so much,
