Have you ever wondered what the deal with commercial real estate investing is?

It’s no secret that commercial real estate investing represents a path to building massive, passive wealth. As a natural progression for many investors, it offers several advantages over residential investments: Higher income potential, steady cash flow, more attractive leasing contracts and lower vacancy risks are just a few of the benefits that coincide with this part of the industry. Commercial real estate investing isn’t without its own obstacles, however. While they offer substantial upside, these complex undertakings require investors to do their due diligence when seeking deals; the first step is understanding the ins and outs of how they work.

Unlike residential real estate, commercial investments generally consist of purchasing properties used solely for business purposes, and then leasing the space in order to collect rent from each business that occupies the respective space. These properties are commonly referred to as retail, office, industrial and apartment buildings, warehouses, and mixed-use buildings.

If you’re wondering how to invest in commercial real estate, the following will explain the importance of conducting due diligence, including performing market research before investing, as well as the many benefits associated with commercial real estate investment.
