Investing in Commercial Real Estate
Most real estate investors begin their careers with residential investments and slowly move on to commercial properties. Commercial properties tend to be more lucrative to invest in, but the process is also more complicated. While residential investing is fairly straightforward, commercial investing requires an altogether different skill set, a more aggressive strategy, and a greater awareness of the economic and social trends that could affect your investment.
Economic trends come in cycles. Because investments in commercial real estate tend to be long-term, your investment will probably last through several economic slumps and surges. A good commercial investor is prepared for the good as well as the bad, ready to change strategies when appropriate.
Take Advantage of Low Interest Rates
For the time-being, interest rates are low. Strategic refinancing will pay for itself after a given amount of time if the market conditions are right. Here at New Vistas Corporation, we can give you the advice you need to manage your real estate assets.
Find an Experienced Management Team
Finding the right management team for your particular asset type is essential. When you invest in commercial real estate, it’s wise to work with people who are experts.
Invest in Market Analysts
Our staff at New Vistas Corporation understands the micro and the macro levels of the real estate business, and we can help you manage your properties through booms and busts. Sometimes having a vacancy is a positive thing, while other times it can be detrimental. It all depends on the state of the market.
Find an Asset Manager who Excels at Communication
Above all else, find a property manager who excels at communication. All of the knowledge in the world won’t do you much good if your property/asset manager does not communicate well and frequently about improvements to be made and how to best position your property in the market.
Find an Asset Manager Who Understands Your Goals
Both long-term and short-term commercial real estate investments can be profitable, but make sure that your asset manager understands what your goals are. Set forth clearly-defined goals, and the team at New Vistas Corporation can help you achieve them.
