Commercial real estate investors have two goals: generate cash flow and produce higher returns. However, unlike other investment types, investing in commercial property is not simply a matter of buying at one price and selling for more. Commercial real estate must be considered in terms of the risks and rewards of the type of commercial property, income during the investment period, the investor’s own situation, and how value and return are impacted by the economic, market, tax, and legal conditions (particularly zoning) for the market niche.

This course presents an overview of the factors impacting value and investment potential of commercial properties, gives licensees a solid understanding of the financial aspects of commercial real estate investment, and better prepares them to provide professional guidance to their commercial real estate clients when evaluating investment properties for purchase or sale. 

Course highlights include:

  • The six main categories of commercial properties, and their specific challenges and opportunities for investors.
  • A definition of transit-oriented communities, and why they are a growing type of mixed-use development.
  • How zoning, building codes, title issues and the Americans with Disabilities Act impact commercial .property development and investment potential.
  • How licensees can use financial analysis and individual investor profiles to assist clients in analyzing commercial properties for purchase and sale.
