Commercial properties that are for sale can be a great investment for any buyer that wants continuous returns with minimal involvement over property management. If you invest in the right property, you can do little work and let the money come back to you for as long as you own it. Though any commercial property still demands maintenance and oversight, taking on a new property can give larger rewards when certain conditions are right. So if you're looking for a smart investment, consider three things that can't be ignored when you're searching for a new commercial property.
Ideal Location for Universal Commercial Purposes
The location of a commercial property is integral to successful business owners, and if you have a location that can target a wide range of different commercial needs, you may be sitting on a goldmine. According to the US Small Business Association, businesses both large and small seek commercial property that's located in areas where crime is low, the workforce and supply chains are available, and where they can be located in proximity to both competing and complementary businesses. If you're looking to invest in a commercial property that's located in a growing commercial area or one where zoning regulations are lax, you may also be looking at a property that can bring you consistent returns over time, because businesses often want a property that can be built on later as well.
Low-Maintenance and Minimal Repair Needs
A commercial property that's low in maintenance needs and doesn't require upfront repairs can be another investment worth considering. Low maintenance gives you the chance to lease the space with less liability and property management needs. And a property that is also decent to begin with can help you start renting or leasing the space right away without investing anything beyond the purchase, so you start to see returns on your investment faster.
Someone Looking To Sell
If you find a property that's ideally-located or low-maintenance and repair-free, you may still be missing a motivated seller. Motivated sellers in a market that has devalued their property can offer you a great investment, as long as the property can offer a high valuing NOI. Consider if parking and vending fees can be added to your income, and where insurance and maintenance expenses exceed what you could make from leasing the property. If the seller is willing to negotiate a less-than-market value deal and you have a property with a high income potential, you should definitely take a second look at a new commercial investment.
