Determining the demand for a particular commercial property is essential when making a real estate investment. Good demand means you won’t struggle with finding interested tenants. However, demand often decreases over time, so it’s best if you focus more on sustained demand to ensure your investment property will remain attractive for several years to come.
Most commercial lease terms last 5 to 10 years or more, thus granting you several years of secure income. Because of the value that tenants bring, a property that is already leased is more valuable than one that is not. Further, make sure the current tenants will likely remain at the property even as they grow. If you aren’t able to invest in a leased property, there is nothing wrong with a vacant one, but you will have to put in the extra work to find suitable tenants before you see returns.
Every investor has their own goals and timeline with regards to when they hope to cash out of a property. With commercial properties, you want to make sure that they suit your personal timeline and needs.
Experts from across the commercial real estate industry anticipate major changes due to technological advancement. In 2020 and beyond, more tenants will be looking for buildings with Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities, and they will be willing to pay a premium to rent these spaces. As these functionalities become increasingly in demand, commercial real estate entities will add more smart buildings to their investment portfolios.
Technology is also influencing change in commercial real estate needs among retailers and grocers. The rise of e-commerce has forced many of these organizations to abandon their existing distribution hubs in favor of bigger commercial facilities with increased access to cold storage.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is another technology that is shaking up the commercial real estate sector. Many property investors are already leveraging AI to collect data, but few understand how to properly use it. We see AI being used to follow tenant trends and discover new avenues of revenue.
