Compared to the rest of the Greater Portland market, the Fircrest submarket has more expensive rates, and you'll need to make a great offer to be in this hot region.
In the last 90 days, 20 listings have been posted online, which means leases are probably leasing quickly. You'll want to be prepared to make an offer immediately. There aren't many listings below 2,000 square feet on the market, so finding a space for a small business might be tough.
The standard measurement for office space in this area is around 1,850 sqft. Most properties in this market are around 2 floors. Most buildings in this market were built in 1998 and are Class B.
Not much of the real estate is used for commercial space, so it might be hard to find office space. Education is the dominant industry in this area. Most of the folk of Fircrest work from home. Commuting between 30 and 45 minutes a day is the norm for those who opt to reside in this part of town.
