All too often, investors are one-dimensional in their approach to real estate investment, that is, they focus only on one type of property and do not move from there. While these investors are light years ahead of people who do not take action, these investors potentially limit their success. These investors may also define their personal satisfaction by not exploring additional areas of real estate investment, such as commercial real estate. Never let fear of the unknown, or lack of confidence in your skill, keep you from exploring new areas of financial investment.
Commercial real estate is an area of investment that is often overlooked. Many people even dodge commercial property research only because the subject intimidates them. This is unfortunate because commercial property can be a huge source of cash flow, the primary reason why many investors get involved with real estate in the first place. Many who have challenged the commercial real estate world have discovered that they can generate greater cash flow and wealth through commercial property than through any other real estate strategy and that commercial real estate is quite straightforward and easy to learn.
Reasons why people invest commercial property?
Perhaps the main reason why people invest in commercial real estate is the wealth creation opportunity it provides. An operation in commercial real estate, as a general rule, is more likely to produce more cash flow than a residential real estate operation. Also, there is a level of cash flow protection that commercial real estate offers that residential real estate does not. If you buy a single-family residential house, then you will depend on the rent of that unit to produce cash flow. With commercial real estate, especially when multiple units are involved, one or two unoccupied units may still have positive cash flow levels.
Types of commercial real estate investment
In a broad sense, commercial real estate is any property that is used for conducting business. Four of the most common types of commercial real estate are:
Retail – The retail trade market comes in all shapes and sizes, ranging from regional malls to local malls to small plazas for the community.
Industrial- Includes bulk warehouses, office stores, large industrial spaces, research and development parks, industrial parks and storage areas. Specific industrial investments can be an incredible source of income if they have been purchased correctly. One of the members of your team should be someone who is familiar with the industry being investigated and should be able to do inspections on the property.
Offices- Office property can vary based on the height of buildings, from high, medium, low to gardens. A garden office is considered as a one to five-story complex with several buildings and open spaces in between. Investing in garden offices or apartments can be a great way to start your investment since apart from cash flow it also offers the ability to maintain large tracts of land for future development.

If you are interested in the commercial real estate, do not limit yourself to blocking a single area unless you have researched various types of commercial real estate to see what might be the best option.
