Investing in commercial real estate
The location is one of the most important factors to consider. Properties located near universities, hospitals, or downtown areas will generally have a higher value and sell more quickly.
The best reason to invest in commercial over residential rentals is the earning potential. Commercial properties generally have an annual return off the purchase price between 6% and 12%, depending on the area, which is a much higher range than typically exists for single family home properties (1% to 4% at best).
Small business owners generally take pride in their businesses and want to protect their livelihood. Owners of commercial properties enjoy this professional relationship.
Retail tenants are just as concerned with maintaining a clean and well-kept store and storefront as the owner, because if they don’t, it will affect their business. This helps the owner maintain and improve the quality of the property, and ultimately, the value of his/her investment.
If you will give us the opportunity to help you in your decision-making process we feel we can help you find just the investment you are looking for.
