Buying Commercial Real Estate - 3 Considerations

Real estate comes in two broad categories: residential and commercial. We talk a lot about residential real estate and the steps to take when buying your own home, but we haven't yet spent a lot of time focusing on commercial real estate at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Commercial real estate is often multifaceted and complex. It is a major business investment, and there are lots of financial factors at play. Commercial real estate transactions also have a unique need for extreme flexibility and confidentiality. If you are thinking about buying commercial real estate, here are a few important considerations to keep in mind.

1. Location, Location, Location

What are three most important factors for any business? Location, location, location. There's a reason this famous business adage is so pervasive throughout our society - it's true. Your location can make or break your business. When you buy commercial property, you are locking yourself in to that location for many years. Take the time to weigh all the pros and cons so you can determine that your location will be a wise investment for your business.

Your Business' Specific Requirements

No two businesses are alike, and what works for one business will not necessarily work for another. You may be buying a building that was previously owned by the most successful business in town, but that is not an automatic guarantee for your own business' success. Dedicate some time to brainstorming your business' specific needs and requirements, and buy property that meets them.

Cash Flow Pros & Cons

As any business owner can attest, cash flow is an incredibly important consideration. "Cash flow" refers to the total amount of funds "flowing" in and out of your business, but it pays special attention to the potential for liquidity of the funds. When you buy commercial real estate, you will have to set aside a significant amount of money every month to go towards paying back your business loan. If expensive repairs come up, this can put a squeeze on your cash flow. On the other hand, owning your own building is a great financial asset for your business. You can also lease the space to another business owner, which provides another opportunity for income.
