Commercial Property For Sale In Kenya

Any form of property, whether it's commercial or residential, can be a wonderful investment opportunity. Commercial assets, such as rental flats or single-family homes, often give more financial benefit for your money.

Commercial assets can include, buildings for retail, offices, and warehouses

business buildings, condos buildings "mixed-use" buildings, which include retail, office, and apartment functions.

It's critical to understand all of the benefits and drawbacks of commercial investment properties so you can make the best investment decision possible.

Pros of commercial property for sale

  1. Income potentials

The best incentive to invest in commercial assets rather than residential assets is the possibility for profit. Commercial buildings typically offer an average rate of return of 5.8% to 12%, depending on the region, the current economy, and external factors (such as a pandemic). This is a much broader range than is common for single-family homes (1% to 4% at best).

  1. Professional relationship

Self-employed people are often proud of their businesses and want to protect their investments. The majority of commercial rental property owners are limited liability companies (LLCs) that operate the property as an enterprise. As a result, the landlord and renter have a stronger business-to-business relationship, which makes it easier to maintain professional and respectful interactions.

  1. Good monitoring of the properties

Commercial renters have an incentive to keep their establishment and retail outlet in great shape because if they don't, it will hurt their operations. As a result, commercial tenants' and property owners' interests are intertwined, allowing the owner to keep and improve the quality of the property, and hence the value of their asset.

  1. Limited operation hours

At night, most businesses go home. In other words, you work when they do. Except for mid security alerts for break-ins or fire alarms, you should be able to sleep easily without worrying about a tenant who needs repairs or has misplaced a key contacting you late at night.

Commercial properties are also more likely to have an alarm surveillance system, which means that if something goes wrong late at night, your alarm company will alert the necessary authorities.

  1. Objective pricing options

Commercial asset prices are frequently easier to appreciate than residential property prices because you may request the existing owner's income statement and establish what price to charge should be based on. If the seller is collaborating with an expert broker, the selling price should be set at a level that allows an investor to earn the current cap rate for the type of commercial asset being considered in the area.

Cons of commercial property for sale

  1. Time commitment

You have more to handle with a commercial retail building with many tenants, or even just a couple than you do with a residential venture. It is likely impossible to maximize your return on investment as an absentee landlord.

You're dealing with a lot of contracts, yearly CAM adjustments (tenant-paid common area maintenance expenses), additional maintenance issues, and public safety concerns when it comes to commercials. In a nutshell, you've got more on your plate, and you, like your tenants, must deal with the public. However, you can employ a caretaker to handle your commercial asset businesses.

  1. Cost

Getting your foot in the door with a commercial asset is generally more challenging than getting your foot in the door with a residential rental in the same neighbourhood.

After you've bought a commercial asset, you should expect to spend a lot of money on it. Your property may be running smoothly for a few months before receiving a huge bill for roof repairs. With more clientele, there are more amenities to maintain, which means more expenditures. You hope that the revenue gains balance the cost increases when buying a business property over a residential one.

  1. More risks

Commercial spaces attract more public visitors, resulting in more persons on the premises each day who could be injured or cause damage to your property. In parking lots, cars can hit passersby, pedestrians can stumble. These kinds of incidents can happen everywhere, but the odds of them happening to you increase when you invest in commercial properties. However, with proper maintenance and good management, you can avert some of these bad incidents.
