How to Jump From Residential Real Estate Sales to Commercial Real Estate Sales

Moving From Residential Sales to Commercial

Moving From Residential Sales to Commercial

Serious about your real estate selling success? You’ll want to consider making the jump to commercial investments. Afraid the complications of commercial will make the ascent a difficult one? It may be a smoother climb than you think…

Soaring to new heights
Residential real estate selling is quite profitable, but it’s a drop in the bucket compared to commercial real estate’s potential. Once you make the switch to commercial, residential will likely disappear in the rearview mirror. Luckily there are easy ways to get started:

  • A hop, a skip, and a jump: Commercial apartments…
    For those experienced in residential properties, commercial apartments, buildings with more than four units, are a great step up. Loans are non-recourse (secured by the property), so your personal credit and assets are not at risk. Do differentiate between residential and non-residential commercial apartments, however, lest you wind up with 2 a.m. emergency plumbing calls.
  • Leap at the opportunity: Networking…
    Cheap and effective, when it comes to commercial investing, there’s no better bang for your buck than working your way into commercial real estate by networking. Many of the best commercial property deals are done without a single listing. Called “pocket listings,” these non-MLS properties allow in-the-know realtors to showcase properties to serious buyers, diverting tire-kickers and looky-loos.
  • Out of this world: Other interesting, positive cash flow options…
    Don’t rule out mobile home parks, senior living, self-storage, offices, and multi-use properties as positive cash flow opportunities either. The key is in identifying investments that appeal to a wide cross section of renters – and keeping vacancy-related issues in mind. For instance, there’s huge profit potential in restaurants, but quite a risk of long vacancy periods.

Real estate selling seem like a tall order these days? We’ve got the tools you need for success. Take a leap of faith with the help of Properties Online today!

<a href=””>  Commercial real estate </a> is one of the three primary types of real estate. The other types are residential real estate, which is used for living purposes; and industrial real estate, which is used for manufacturing and production. The businesses that occupy commercial real estate usually lease the space.
