What Makes Commercial Real Estate An Excellent Investment?
There are several ways to invest. But the most proven way of realizing high returns has been through commercial real estate. This strategy dates back to the founding of the United States. John Jacob Astor became America’s first millionaire through commercial real estate in Manhattan. And the fundamental reasons that commercial real estate is the #1 investment choice remain as true today as they were in the 1800’s.
Steady and reliable residual income is one of the hallmarks of commercial real estate. Unlike most stocks, which pay little to no dividends, commercial real estate is defined by its ability to pay out regular cash distributions. This is an extremely important trait, as it allows investors to have greater patience through recessions, as well as give greater security in covering problems that may come up along the way. With most stocks, the only way to realize any income is to sell the stock. With commercial real estate, income is achieved from the cash-flow of the property, without the need to sale. Equally important, commercial real estate has traditionally had the highest returns among all forms of investment. While most stocks that do pay dividends are fortunate to provide 3% distributions annually, with CDs, Treasuries and bonds paying as little as 1%. Alternatively, it is not uncommon for commercial real estate to pay out 10%+.
While cash flow is a major advantage of commercial real estate investing, the ability to create massive wealth through capital appreciation is an even bigger advantage. It is not uncommon for commercial properties to increase significantly in value over time. In fact, commercial real estate has proven to be one of the greatest hedges to inflation of all investment types. One of the primary reasons is that rents typically increase with inflation, which serves to increase the commercial real estate’s value. In addition, inflation can drive up the cost of new construction, thereby increasing the value of existing properties.
This is one of the most important reasons that real estate has proven to be an excellent investment type over time. Most commercial real estate is not purchased with 100% cash, but rather with a much lower cash down payment, with the balance financed by a mortgage. This enables investors to purchase commercial real estate that exceeds their available capital. This strategy was used by John Jacob Astor to corner the market on Manhattan real estate. Additionally, the values of commercial real estate are very rational, based on stable rents, while stocks are often irrational and can experience significant fluctuations in value. Leverage enables investors to create much greater financial gains than any other form of investment.
Most commercial real estate is based on fairly basic needs, such as shelter (e.g. apartments and office spaces). Historically, the strong and perpetual demand for shelter provides investors with one of the most reliable forms of financial security.
