Step Two: What You Can Afford

It's time to leverage the knowledge of size to understand the right budget.

What Can I Afford?


Know The Rate

Office, flex, retail, and industrial—The rates for these different spaces varies wildly. Being in a flex project could save you tens of thousands of dollars if you don’t need traditional office space.

VoxRate is our AI-powered estimate of what you should pay—not just a random or half-baked quote from a listing site.  Every building on Tenavox has a VoxRate, which is based on a total (gross) costs per year, so you can make an accurate budget assessment when you search. No More, NNN nonsense, misalignment or wasted time calling buildings outside of your true budget.


Understand Your Budget

Understand your budget for any allowances for work to be done by you or the Landlord. Don’t get caught with your pants down here, there should be three competitive bids and one fully approved as an attachment to the lease.


Rent Calculator
