Debunking 4 commercial real estate myths

On Behalf of | Aug 27, 2022 | Risk Management

You may have been told by someone you know not to invest in property because of some problems they had with commercial real estate. 

While you can’t know for certain if you’ll have the same issues, you may be able to resolve some of that tension by separating fact from fiction when it comes to commercial real estate:

1. Myth: It’s better to build than to buy a building

There are many pros and cons when it comes to buying land on which to build, but the same can be said about buying a building. Buying land may not necessarily mean you’ll have an advantage over an already established building. Depending on what you want to use your investment for you might need to consider your own reasons for your purchase. 

2. Myth: Commercial real estate investment is only for the rich

Nearly anyone can invest in real estate – it isn’t just for people with lots of spare money. Unlike rich people, you may need to reach out to a bank or lender to help you invest in real estate. 

3. Myth: It’s too late to invest in real estate

Whether it’s because of the market or because of your age, it’s never too late to invest in real estate. There may be times of the year when it’s better to invest, but real estate values are always going up. 

4. Myth: Legal problems with real estate only occur after a purchase 

Many people who invest in real estate encounter legal problems. These problems may be caused by lenders or sellers. If you’re looking to invest in real estate and avoid legal difficulties, then you may need to reach out for legal help who can provide you with your options and protect your interests.
