If your home isn’t large enough to house a space for your business, you may need to upsize to a larger property. 
What to Look for in a Property
Consider moving to a larger home that has a separate space already set up for a home-based business. Some properties offer potential buyers an established commercial space in a different part of the house, such as the basement, addition, garage, or guest quarters.
