Commercial property investment in Australia offers higher income than many asset classes along with excellent prospects for capital growth. Whilst higher income is generally associated with increased risk, this risk can be mitigated and your prospects of success increased by undertaking detailed research, and choosing the right asset, investment structure and professional advisors. Here is a basic guide to getting started.
Commercial Real Estate is an attractive asset class offering many benefits to investors. AAA quality assets including office buildings, warehouses and shopping centres can provide high yields, secure long term income from premium tenants and genuine prospects for capital growth. Another feature of direct commercial property investing is the diversification and lower volatility it offers when compared with shares, equities or other derivative products.
