Commercial Property? How to invest in Commercial Real Estate Property and its Pro’s and Con’s.

Commercial Property or Commercial Real Estate refers to buildings or land intended to generate a profit. Commercial real estate is considered a more stable investment than other types of real estate due to the lease lengths, which are often several years or more. Commercial real estate is different than working with residential real estate which is classified by its use into many categories.

Types of Commercial Real Estate

 

  • OFFICES AND INDUSTRIES
  • RETAIL CENTERS
  • HOTELS AND RESORTS
  • LAND DEVELOPMENT

Investing in Commercial Property Real Estate:

There are two main ways to invest in commercial real estate.

The first is to invest for rental purposes. Commercial real estate leases are longer in length, meaning they are more stable investments for unstable markets. Your investment should be fairly safe if your lease term is not up yet when the market takes a dip. Investing for the rental income is often the more lucrative path in commercial real estate, especially if you have a Class A or Class B building.

Another way to invest in commercial real estate is to invest in property appreciation. Because the businesses who rent out commercial buildings mainly rely on location to make a better profit, and because real estate in prime areas is limited—the value of commercial buildings appreciate rather rapidly. This is especially true if you get into a lucrative location before it gains popularity. Investors looking to use the appreciation as their investment should know that the market for this type of investment is a bit riskier than the rental market.
