Commercial Real Estate

December 28th, 2021 3:07 PM by Barbara Doeringer

Today, due to the internet and online marketplaces, anyone can be an investor in real estate, even commercial.  Commercial real estate is the procurement and management of commercial properties, such as retail buildings, office spaces, warehouses, storage buildings, just to give some examples.  But there are many different rules and regulations as well as documentation, disclosures and procedures to a commercial real estate transaction as compared to residential.  That’s why it is very important to have an experienced realtor who knows all of these details.

Any kind of a real estate purchase is an investment, but there are special benefits for commercial:

  1. You can get a faster return on income (ROI) due to the influx of rental income. You can also increase the rent higher as compared to a residential structure.
  2. There is less risk because you can secure long-term lease contracts for as long as 3-5 years and this ensures profitability regardless of economic swings.
  3. The IRS offers tax incentives to owners on expenses related to upkeep and maintenance.
  4. You will have conscientious clients who take pride in maintaining their image for their products and services and will keep the premises in good condition.
  5. Commercial establishments have set hours of operation, so there is no need for “middle of the night” calls or emergency visits like in residential.
  6. There is less competition and there are different “niches” you can specialize in to set yourself apart.
  7. Commercial property appreciates over time, especially if located in a prime area and you can always add a new amenity or feature to add value.  

Investing in commercial real estate is a huge undertaking but it offers many benefits and fewer risks than residential investments.  The most important thing to remember is that you will need expert advice and guidance by a realtor who is experienced in this field!   We have an experienced commercial real estate agent on our team.  Let us help you!
