Commercial Property Made Easy: A Quick Guide To Investing

While there is a higher risk attached to investing in commercial property, the excellent yield on the same makes it a worthwhile proposition. The commercial property market is more volatile and diverse in nature than the residential property market, which is why a nuanced understanding of the market drivers and growth prospects can help you make the right decision.

Here’s a quick guide to investing in commercial property.

1. The location is all-important:

The locality where you set up your commercial enterprise has the potential to make or break the business. Some key parameters to judge a locality are:

  • Visibility: Does the chosen locality lend your business adequate visibility (to consumers and other key stakeholders)?  
  • Accessibility: Is the location easily accessible via various modes of transport?
  • Social infrastructure: What is the social infrastructure of the area like, and what are the plans for development in the future? Is the area saturated or is there scope for growth?
  • Proximity to commercial hubs: Being close to other commercial hubs will always give the locality an edge.
  • Ethical concerns: Enquire about land inventory, legal matters and other possible ethical or environmental concerns before investing.

2. Select the optimum property size:

Large commercial property units are typically more difficult to lease out. If you’re looking for immediate rental yield, investing in a relatively smaller property unit makes sense.

3. Assess the scope for growth:

The commercial location should be equipped with adequate social infrastructure, and the chosen property should allow for value appreciation as well as a high rental yield. A pre-leased commercial unit is a good option for generating rental income right away, while larger units are preferable for better long-term returns.

4. Get all the documents in order:

Getting all the mortgage and ownership documents in order is vital to making a good investment. Enquire about all the legal documents and formalities that you need to complete in order to take possession of and lease out your commercial unit.

5. Acquaint yourself with the market drivers:

Changes in government policy as well as fluctuating interest rates on loans can directly impact the demand and supply of commercial properties. Being aware of the various factors that can affect the value of the property enables you to make better investment decisions.

My son Tattva had been enrolled in the intermediate level and has been coached by the Vishwanathan Anand Chess Academy coach . Tattva has made remarkable strides and will be on his way to get his FIDE rating in November. A lot of credit goes to the mentor for his unique way of handling his students. He has been very patient while working with Tattva on his areas of improvement. In addition before the tournament the coach had voluntarily added additional classes and doubled his efforts to get a better performance out of Tattva. He has shown complete ownership which is commendable. I hope he continues to develop more and more chess players in the coming days.
