  • Commercial or residential real estate: where to invest?

    There are significant differences between investing in residential and commercial real estate. Each of these real estate categories has its features, that you need to consider. On the one hand, residential real estate is usually cheaper and smaller than commercial one, so it is more accessible to smaller investors. On the other hand, commercial real estate often has a higher cost per square meter and leases for longer periods, theoretically providing a more predictable income stream. More income means more responsibility.

    Renting commercial property is more strictly regulated than residential, and the rules may differ not only from country to country but also from city to city. Even within cities, zoning regulations can increase the difficulty of investing in commercial objects. When renting commercial real estate, there is also an increased risk of tenant turnover. If the tenant has a bad business model, a not-very-attractive product, or bad management, he can declare himself bankrupt. Failure in business can prevent you from generating income from expensive real estate.

    Moreover, the property can not only grow in value but also depreciate. Everyone knows that once-popular retail outlets can eventually turn into forgotten half-dead shopping centers. In this case, investments in residential real estate look more reliable. So, if you want to become a real estate investor, you need to carefully study the market, the pros and risks of a particular area, and work out all the options.
