It goes without saying that the biggest benefit of all from owning a property that you have rented out is you will be provided with a direct income stream.

Owning a property that is rented out at £1,000 per month equates to £12,000 per year of rental income. *Minus costs

Then factor in the emergency repairs, the cost of removing the old water boiler. The list is endless.

More often than not when property investing goes wrong it can often be down to bad financial planning. Such as not having savings for the rainy days… if you find yourself in the position of having NO tenant and four to six months of repairs to get the property ready to be placed back on the open market. Times like those can devastate the owners investment property ownership dreams.

How To Invest In Commercial Real Estate

How To Invest In Commercial Real Estate

All around the world we come into contact with commercial real estate on a daily basis be it when we pop to the local coffee shop to grab a cup of coffee on the way into work or the Italian restaurant for a bite to eat at lunch time.

Commercial real estate is all around us and we use it more often that we come to consider.

Of course, such real estate is owned by someone or some organisation. Suitably this is an alternative investment method for residential property investors. You can earn rental income in the same manner you would from residential except you will earn rental income payable from a business.

With commercial properties you are depending on a market that is in some ways separate from the residential market and with that there are some excellent income generating assets out there that may be suitable for you to consider making an investment.

The best option is partnering with a company such as FJP Investment, experts at identifying high yielding commercial real estate investments. We take the hard work out of the task, that being the identification of the prime asset and you simply position yourself ready to make the investment.

Commercial Real Estate tips and tricks

Commercial Real Estate tips and tricks

At the end of the day, when buying into a commercial real estate venture it is important to have vision of what your customer will see when he/she is prospecting for a new premises.

Research papers such as the 2015 UK Property Market Outlook report from CBRE are useful guides to the industry.

Commercial Property Investors

They come in all shapes and sizes. There is no “one box fits all” category that we could place the typical commercial property investor. Generally we see commercial property investors have at least got experience from owning residential property and the commercial sector is a bi-product of looking to diversify away from residential while remaining in the property industry.

Also we are seeing large multi national companies buying big in the commercial sector. Rental returns are steady and consistent which is the ideal scenario any investor should be looking for.

Commercial Real Estate tips and tricks

Commercial Real Estate Advice

Sure there are tips and tricks that can be given, but really as investors we must identify a strategy and once identified; stick with it.

We must ensure our emotions are not allowed to enter the buying process. Those pretty pink walls may not be so practical once the tenant has had the paint brush out and given it a coat of white. There are so many variables that can encourage our emotions to run wild and more often than not get the better of us. We are seeing an emerging trend of books, guides and seminars that promise the latest and greatest real estate tips and tricks but in reality there is no need to complicate what is already a complicated industry.

KISS is an acronym for “Keep it simple, stupid” – We very much encourage the keeping it simple notion when seeking income opportunities from commercial real estate.

Commercial Real Estate Advice

When seeking investment opportunities it is always wise to seek advice from a qualified financial advisor whom is able to advise whether such investment is suitable for your circumstances. You might like to talk with friends and family that have experienced such similar investment. How did it go? What did they learn? The voice of experience is always your friend and you should soak up such information where possible as knowledge is very much your friend.

You must filter the good advice from the bad advice.

More often than not friends can bring valuable experience to the table but often we find too little experience is often an inexperienced source of advice.

Where possible, seek financial advice. The financial advisor will not only assess the opportunity but also the risk appetite of yourself.  What is suitable for 25 year old on £40,000 per annum salary with 40 years of potential work time may not be suitable for the 65 year old retired doctor collecting his pension.

Best advice is to consider that you worked hard for your money, let the processional work hard to make your money work for you.

Commercial Property is often seen as an attractive proposition because of the nature of the asset. Holding a tangible asset within the portfolio offers security as well as protection against currency fluctuations or even the up/down behaviour that comes with the stock market and commodities.

In the United Kingdom retail investments are very popular and have proven themselves time and time again to provide a solid income for the property owner. This niche market is not without it’s pitfalls, much of the retail market is increasingly going on-line and with that the retail market is having to innovate. Though that being said, all over the world a retail shop is still considered a solid source of revenue providing the right price is paid along with the right location.

Commercial Property Auctions

One of the more popular methods used by commercial property investors is to go to the auctions. Firstly, they will find the property using a number of on-line sales tools and then more often than not attend on the day of the auction and if the price is right, place a bid for said property.

This is an interesting tactic and so long as the research is done and the pricing is right you can find yourself in a winning position. Some examples of commercial property auctions are Savills, Strettons or Acuitus.

Commercial Property Prices

An interesting report made available by the Bank of England provides interesting reading into commercial property and financial stability in the United Kingdom. It is said that the Commercial Property sector has shown signs of resilience over the many years.

We encourage you to spend some time reading the report.

FJP Investment operates in the area of identifying investment opportunities on behalf of investors all over the world. We take the hard task of identifying assets and in turn passing the opportunities to you, the investor. We have a great track record of delivering real value and working towards wealth generation over a very long period of time.

Commercial Property Prices

The values of commercial property in the UK have been rising fast and with that rents are also high. Yields can be seen anywhere between 5% and 12% as the norm. The slowdown in construction projects during the recession has resulted in an under supply of commercial assets made available to the market.

Back in 2007 when the recession hit, savers were pulling out of commercial real estate funds at a rapid rate. Fast forward to today and we seem to have turned the corner with the market sentiments pointing towards a buy signal.

Commercial Property for Lease

Commercial Property for Lease

When buying leasehold property it means you own the property but not the land it sits on. For example you may own an apartment on a 100 year lease which means that once the 100 years is up the ownership of the property will revert back to the landowner. Also typically common with leasehold is you will pay an annual fee to a managing agent of the lease.

The leasehold property land remains the property of the landlord whom is commonly known as the “leaseholder”. Investors shouldn’t be put off by purchasing commercial property for lease since anything over 100 years is typically looked at as good as freehold in the banks eyes.

It is possible to extend a lease with negotiation being successful with the leaseholder.
