+ And why should we invest in commercial property?
Although residential and commercial properties both have proven to be excellent and profitable investments, commercial real estate investing might be a better option for property investors who are willing to undertake a large venture. Benefits of investing in commercial property include:
#1 Easier to Obtain Large Sum of Capital
To start investing in commercial properties, you’ll definitely need a large sum of capital. In residential real estate investing, property investors can only obtain money from individual investors such as hard money lenders and private money lenders as well as other traditional methods of financing. Aside from these financing options, there are not many ways for residential properties investors to receive even a small amount of capital.
On the other hand, obtaining a large sum of capital in commercial real estate investing is much easier as there are many financing options to choose from. As a commercial real estate investor, not only do you have the ability to raise capital by using traditional financing options, but you can also use the help of hedge funds, investment groups, and private equity firms. Commercial property investors can also pool capital and have access to more financing to purchase the investment property.
#2 Higher Return on Investment
Depending on the investment property, commercial real estate investing can provide a higher guaranteed return on investment when compared to residential properties. In general, the average ROI for commercial properties ranges between 6-12%, while the average ROI for residential properties (like single-family homes) is typically only between 1-4%. As a result, commercial real estate investing gives property investors the ability to make more money each year, which will have a positive effect on your overall net worth.
#3 Forced Appreciation
While residential investment properties do increase in value (appreciate) over time, commercial real estate properties can increase in value relatively quickly.
When assessing the values of residential properties, the average of real estate comps that were recently sold in the surrounding area must be taken into consideration. Thus, even if residential property investors decide to upgrade their investment properties, they still won’t be able to place the investment property on the investing market at a much higher price than surrounding properties in their area. Therefore, “forcing” appreciation with the residential real estate is practically impossible.
In commercial real estate investing, in contrast, investment properties are valued based on the revenue and cash flow that they generate. For example, if your commercial property has generated a lot of revenue, its value will most likely be high as well. As a result, commercial property investors can force appreciation on their investment properties by finding ways to produce more revenue! Finding high-quality tenants, raising the rent, adding amenities, and ensuring the investment property is being used for the highest and best use are some of the best ways a savvy commercial property investor can force appreciation and increase revenue.
#4 Less Competition
Investing in commercial properties (like office buildings and shopping centers) is a huge undertaking. This is why so many property investors shy away from commercial real estate investing. In addition, there are a variety of commercial property types, such as industrial, retail, office, and apartments, and not to mention that within each property type there are also numerous sub-types to choose from. For an experienced property investor willing to take a risk, commercial real estate investing offers less completion and more opportunity to excel.
Moreover, even though commercial real estate investing costs more than residential, banks are much more willing to lend money for a high-performing commercial property than a residential.
As compared to residential properties, commercial propertises offer property investors far more benefits in the long term. However, not every property investor is advised to invest in commercial property! Make sure you are financially qualified and have enough knowledge and experience in the field beforehand in order not to face a failure.
