Don’t shy away from the prospects of investing in commercial real estate. Great profits can be made in this field.

Dallas, Texas HomeVestors is the nation’s number one home buying franchise and has helped real estate investors purchase 50,000 properties over the years. The company knows that most people who have entertained the idea of engaging themselves in real estate investing usually think in terms of buying and selling or renting out private family homes.  That’s because most of the information about real estate investing involves buying and selling family homes.  Popular media sources that inform the public about real estate investing opportunities like late night infomercials, almost always focus exclusively on this.  It is no surprise that there is very little awareness about the possibility of becoming successful at investing in commercial real estate such as apartment complexes, office buildings, retail buildings, or even hotels and resorts.

Even real estate investors with some years worth of experience can easily get intimidated about the prospects of making that leap from their comfort zone of the small private family home to the rather seemingly frightening world of commercial real estate.  The truth is, it is entirely possible to get into commercial real estate with the same basic skill sets that proved successful in family home investing.

It goes without saying that investing in commercial real estate takes a lot more capital compared to investing in family homes.  By its very nature, the average piece of commercial real estate is several magnitudes larger in terms of square footage, capacity of occupancy, parking space and other facilities.  By the same token, they require much bulkier loan packages to get financed.  Not only are the loans bigger, but the down payments as percentages of the loans are typically larger as well.  Investing in commercial real estate therefore, usually requires the deep pockets of huge corporations.  This doesn’t mean that small investors cannot form a partnership big enough to get a piece of the action.  The more qualifying partners that can be brought in and the more diverse their skill sets, the better their chances of making it as commercial real estate investor.  The best kind of partnership to form in such a case would be a limited liability company, which protects its individual members against the company’s liabilities.

Investing in commercial real estate has several advantages that make it worthwhile.  Unlike single unit residential properties for which buyers are hard to come by due to current market conditions, the problem of occupancy is less of a concern with commercial real estate.

Commercial real estate investment is, without doubt, a lot more lucrative when forming a partnership set of qualified individuals.
