Need a workshop more than a houseHello I am a mechanical engineer (28 years old) and I have strong aspirations to start my own business. I am interested in beginning a small manufacturing business that makes high end consumer goods. I know I can be successful, but I don't have the workspace to begin. I currently do not own a home and I am renting from a family member. The perfect situation for me would be a small house with a huge garage or workshop. I don't see many properties like this because large workshops tend to come with large homes and the cost is too high. I am not interested in renting a workshop at this time. So I have been thinking about buying a small older industrial property instead of a house. I need a workshop more than I need a place to live. Is an industrial property automatically more expensive than a residential home? Can I buy an industrial property if I don't have an official business started? Where is a good place to look for properties like this? Any information or advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
