Commercial property is the property and land which is used for business purposes and functions. In general, commercial property is a great investment because overall returns tend to be higher than investments in residential properties.
Purchase or lease?
Choosing whether to purchase or lease the commercial property is potentially one of the most important factors to consider in your investment. Your choice will depend on your knowledge and the circumstances of your investment. It might be best to seek professional advice to help you figure out what will be best for you once you have found a property which interests you. Be aware that in some cases, a commercial property lease agreement could be for 10-15 years.
Consider your investment & return
Firstly, you need to figure out what level of investment you are able to afford, then begin looking for the types of commercial properties you can get for that budget. Be aware that location, economic factors, infrastructure and property type will have an impact on your return on investment.
Commercial property tends to have longer leases than residential, guaranteeing you income for a longer period of time. However, you will need to take into account the level of risk for the times when the property is vacant.
Long or short-term investment
Carefully decide whether you would like a short or long term investment. Many new-time investors fall into the trap of only thinking of the short-term. It is essential that you look forward at the bigger picture and plan for the potential long-term effects of your investment.
When you find a property which interests you, the safest option is to seek advice from a professional commercial property broker who can help you with these difficult thoughts and decisions.
