At any given time, you should place your focus on only one investment. Concentrate on one particular type of commercial real estate at any given time, whether it be office blocks or retail space, for example. Each kind of investment will require a full time commitment. Mastering one type of investment will set you up for success much faster than spreading yourself across many mediocre investments.
Add a blog to your website to develop your good reputation as a commercial real estate investor. This is a great way to introduce people to your products and services and also which properties you have available for sale or leasing.
Before you can start using the commercial property you've purchased, you might need to make some improvements. This may be simple changes such as painting or rearranging furniture. The change could be significant like moving an entire wall to work with a new floor plan. When negotiating, you should discuss who will pay for the improvements you'll have to make, and should see if the current owner will cover some of your costs.
Make sure you consider size and square footage when checking out potential properties for an expanding business. Invest in property which allows your business to grow as necessary so you can avoid having to buy another property down the road.
