An excerpt from the book:
Most people view real estate investing as putting money into a residential property – whether it is a single home, condominium, or duplex. However, one option available in the real estate market is purchasing commercial properties like warehouses, stores, or many different types of business locations. There are even some commercial properties that can be for “mixed use” where there can be retail, office, and apartment offerings. One of the reasons why an investor would want to gradually shift towards a more commercial real estate portfolio is that the competition has flocked towards the residential properties. They are hoping for the next big boom in home prices going up after years of economic lows. While it might end up being a safe bet, there might be bigger bucks with that economic boom that would allow companies to want to expand and open different stores or offices. Another positive thing to expect is the potential income that can be gained, which are much higher than its retail counterparts. The general annual return from the original sale price is usually around six to 12 percent, depending on the location of the property. The average return for family homes is about one to four percent at best.
