3 Tips for Buying Small Commercial Property

Real estate market in the United States is stagnant, but real estate business being real estate which had always been profitable, there are still a lot of opportunities that buyers, sellers, and investors could take advantage of. So if you are already decided to enter as a beginner investor, you should start buying small commercial properties. Here are 3 tips for buying small commercial property:

1. Hire a broker. Hiring a commercial property broker will help you save time, effort and money. You will have someone to help do most of the task which you are not familiar with. Aside from that, a broker possesses a deeper knowledge about commercial properties than you do. He knows the market better.

Other reasons why you should hire a commercial property broker are:

• A commercial property knows why he’s hired. He knows that he’s with you because he needs to help you find a place to live in. Which means he knows that even if he’s the one doing most of the grunt work, you are the one in control and he’ll give you that control.

• A broker could make recommendations when it comes to the home selling or buying pricing. Your agent knows about the present and current real estate condition and he’s knowledge about the current pricing will be a great advantage for you.

2. The location. Or what experts called the “geographic market”. You won’t be looking to buy in the best location where most of the commercial properties have already been established. Instead, you will be looking to buy in a location where there’s booming market. Here, you must be able to see in a strategical way at where the area of the commercial property is and what it can be.

Just for example, there was an investor who bought a commercial property in a road off of the main strip of hotels in the city. The road only housed two hotels, but he investor knew that location has so much potential. He knew that few years that time the place will have more residents and that the place will transform into a commercial place and it did! This resulted his properties to be the first ones established.

3. Properties to buy. It is the number one concern that the money you will place as an investment will return hopefully on a shorter time frame. Of course, as an investor it is your number one concern to build wealth and what most experts say is “to buy properties with inflation income potential for that income to grow as the real estate market recovers.”
