Is This The Right Time To Buy Commercial Real Estate?

December 6, 2007 – 4:37 pm

Whether the economy is up or down, people are always questioning whether it’s the right time to to buy commercial real estate. I have spoken to people who have been shopping for just the right deal for 5 or 6 years. They were so worried that the market would go down that they didn’t buy anything in perhaps the hottest real estate market ever.

Can you imagine how well you could have done if you bought just a small fraction of the commercial real estate that you looked at since the year 2000? You might be too busy enjoying your yacht in the south of France right now to read this article if you had.

Just what is a bargain when you are dealing with commercial real estate? Is it 10%, 20% or 100% below the average price for a similar property? Probably any one of those numbers would constitute a true bargain. However, how probable is it that one can actually buy the property significantly below market price?

I submit that it is not very probable. In fact most people that have doubled, tripled, quadrupled or increased their net worth even more than that may well have paid market price for their property. The money is made on buying smart and projecting income prudently. It does not need to be made on “stealing” property.

Buying or selling prudently in a down or up market is key for investing into commercial real estate. Otherwise, if you are waiting to take action for just the optimum conditions you may grow old waiting to do it. You will also miss a great many opportunities along the way.

More about opportunities another day.

Let me know what you think about buying commercial real estate.
