Real Estate Advisory for Small Business


The Decision to Lease or Purchase (or Sell)

Are you a small business owner currently looking for lease space or possibly considering a purchase or sale of building such as an office condominium, retail establishment, hotel/motel, apartment complex or industrial/flex building?  

The Rice Group, Inc. has the expertise to guide you through the decision making process between lease versus purchase, and even how selling a property can benefit you.  We assist with site selection, structuring and negotiating the purchase or lease agreement, asset due diligence, and managing the transaction through completion.  We have many clients who were sellers and in some cases, were able to sale and lease back their space in order to free up capital for other investments.  We understand the needs of most all property owners, or prospective owners and tenants.

We stay involved.  The Rice Group, Inc. can also manage investment properties, provide bookkeeping and vendor selection, and even assist with financing of your real estate and equipment.

We understand that leases can vary and that they can present confusing situations between tenants and landlords.  Likewise, we can help to clarify lease language and provide lease negotiation to save you time and money.  In most cases, you are not responsible for our compensation.

Our team assists small business owners in a variety of ways.  We routinely communicate with landlords to create mutually beneficial, long term lease arrangements as a platform for trust and success.

In addition, we conduct a majority of desk-top audit processes and administration of account reconciliations received from landlords including, but not limited to, review and computation of percentage rent, insurance and property tax billings; provide reporting and analysis to enable critical lease decisions and other duties as needed.
