Why invest in commercial real estate
The most important asset for building long-term, generational wealth
Commercial real estate has many attractive attributes that make it a desirable asset for wealth generation and preservation.
Strong total returns
Commercial real estate has historically produced attractive total returns relative to other asset classes. It's outperformed major stock indexes in most countries over the last 20 years.
Tangible asset ownership
Commercial real estate is one of the few investment classes that is a physical asset that has meaningful intrinsic value. Properties' land has tangible value, as do structures themselves.
High yielding cash flow
Commercial real estate is typically secured by long term leases which provide strong cashflow through rental income. Dividend yields from commercial properties (rental income) are significantly higher than average dividend yields on equities.
Commercial real estate enjoys favourable tax characteristics in most countries. Mortgage interest and depreciation deductions can often shield a large portion of properties' incomes.
Commercial real estate offers portfolio diversification against more traditional asset classes such as equities, bonds, cash, and residential real estate.
Pride of ownership
An intangible but highly underappreciated aspect of commercial real estate is the pride of ownership. Individuals find great joy in ownership. Individuals find great joy in owning the physical spaces that house the businesses driving our economy.
