Before paying any agent, check his or her disclosures; these can tell you a great deal about the agent’s character and ability. Never neglect the fact that you may be dealing with a “dual agency.” Dual agency means the real estate company is representing both the seller and the buyer in a property transaction. In other words, the agency represents the landlord and the tenant simultaneously. An agent should always disclose dual agency, and it must be acceptable to both parties. Develop the perception that you are an expert by beginning an online blog. This is helpful in finding people that want what you have looking at your properties. TIP! When you are purchasing a piece of commercial real estate, know in advance what you plan to do with it. Decide if you are going to use the property for your business or lease it.

You may have a better price, figured per unit, on the larger apartment complex than on the smaller one. TIP! If you’d like to rent out the properties you purchase, it’s best to buy a simple building with solid construction. These spaces are more likely to fill quickly with paying tenants who are drawn towards something that is well maintained.

Buy property with more units. By having access to a large number of units, you will be able to more easily spread your earnings across all of your units. Many commercial real estate investors look at unit numbers first and will not even consider settling for a property with less than ten sources of income. To find a trustworthy real estate firm, inquire about their methods on how they make a lot of their money. This should be a topic that can be openly discussed and should allow you to learn if there are shared interests between you and them. You should determine how exactly they derive profits from your business transactions. You should expect your commercial real estate investment to require a significant time commitment. It will take time to find a lucrative opportunity, and after purchasing a property, it may need repairs or remodeling. You should know what to expect and not give up. Stick with it and you’ll be rewarded. TIP! Before you can finance your commercial property purchases, you have to make certain that you have the necessary financial statements and documentation for either your business or yourself individually. Without these important documents, most lenders will not feel confident enough to provide you with the needed funds.

As the above article stated, purchasing commercial real estate can be extremely rewarding when it comes to making a profit. Pay close attention to the advice presented in this article to circumvent potential problems, and build a successful career in commercial real estate.
