Many people are investing in real estate these days. The entry point is usually a single-family dwelling whether to buy a property to flip it, simply resell it, or rent it out. The next level up in terms of cost and complexity is a CRE investment. That is investing in any commercial property designed to make money including retail stores, industrial warehouses, storage spaces, hotels, healthcare facilities, office buildings, restaurants, and more.    

Reasons to Consider a CRE Investment

There are many reasons to consider a CRE investment including proven high-income potential and competition for properties are much lower than for residential real estate. There is less tenant turnover in this real estate category with fewer problematic tenants, and you can get significantly more help in maintaining a purchased property.

Taking on the challenges of CRE investment is not a simple effort. It takes patience, good information, and plenty of capital. Consider these tips:

Consider your objectives and your financial and time capacity and think about how big you can go.
Commercial real estate takes time–more time than a single-family dwelling. So don’t rush into a decision.
