“I want to get into commercial real estate.”
We hear that multiple times a week from people who are realizing the value of owning investment property where the rents are guaranteed for multiple years and/or split between a large group of tenants, so if one falls off, it’s not the end of the world. Add to that the attractive return on your investment and the ability to diversify funds you might have otherwise placed in what could be a volatile stock market, and it just makes sense.
We, at Pillar Real Estate Advisors, help investors understand what’s different about investing in commercial real estate, as compared to the residential property most people have and/or do own.
We explain things like “Cap Rate,” “NNN Leases,” “Tenant Guarantees,” and most importantly, what the tenant is responsible for, as compared to what they, the landlord, will be responsible for.
With several investment properties for sale and the ability to search out the right opportunity for our clients, we offer a wide range of options to an investor. Whether it’s the Multi-Unit Apartment Complex in Phoenixville or the Meridian Bank Building (with professional office and apartment rentals upstairs) in West Chester, we match the investor with the right product type and return on their money.
We show you what you should be paying for an investment property compared to the rents it generates, as well as the “upside” potential for a property. Are the rents below what others are charging for similar space? Could they be raised after they own it? Can the building be reconfigured, enhanced, or added onto to attract a better, long-term tenant?
When you can borrow money at below four percent for a purchase that allows you to realize your real estate investment goals, now is the time to talk to us about “getting into commercial real estate.”
