Don't Make These Mistakes When Venturing Into Commercial Real Estate Investments
December 26, 2013
Commercial real estate investments can be very smart choices … if you avoid some of the most critical errors. Making even one can prevent you from maximizing the return on your investment, but fortunately, all are avoidable if you know what to watch out for before you invest:
- Know your market. Jumping into a market you don’t understand can have a very negative impact on your investment … maybe even cost you the entire thing. Always, always get to know the local market conditions, or partner with an expert who does have the knowledge you need.
- Do your due diligence on the property. Each property is unique, and you need to get to know it thoroughly before investing. This is especially true if your commercial real estate investment involves business tenants, as you’ll want to investigate them as well as the structure.
- Don’t over-extend yourself financially. Get your math right to keep your whole investment on track, and make sure you don’t load the property with more leverage than its cash flow justifies.
