Sunsource - Check rent prices on other locations in your area. The rent in our area varies drastically. The rent in the shopping center across the street from us is about $3.00 per sq foot cheaper than ours. But, there are drastic differences in the ages of the property, upkeep, etc. You need to factor all of these things in. We've found that when the owner of the shopping center has a business in the center itself, they provide better maintenance and have a tendency to be more understanding and helpful when and if something should go wrong.
