South East business space adviser Rare has launched rare:bnb in a bid to respond to the need of occupiers to find “highly flexible office space arising from their need to offer staff socially distanced workspace”.
Jonathan Mannings Director of RARE comments, “space will be offered on a short term licence basis from three months upwards and can be viewed using its “virtual” viewing platforms - internal drone videos, 360 degree tours and now “virtual tours where the agent walks around the building talking an occupier through the space via a zoom meeting.
From a disposal perspective this new package of measures will appeal to both occupiers seeking to dispose of excess space and to landlords sitting with empty buildings who would welcome some short term income whilst the search for a longer term occupier is ongoing. By offering space on this basis, it’s also possible that a “try before you buy” will convert short term renters in to long term tenants.”
