The rent, of course, is very important when owning commercial investment properties but is just for STARTERS.
When determining which tenant or tenants to deal with or acquire like in a NNN property or retail shopping center, keep in mind the following important issues which will determine your success or failure.
Tenant Credit History
The credit history of the tenants. Such as their strength of balance sheet, years in business, the business concept itself in today’s economy.
Are The tenants A Good Fit For The Location?
Are they a good fit for the neighborhood or location and the demographics of the people living there?
WIll The Tenant Mix Bring In Additional Business?
Will the mix of tenancy blend properly with each other bringing in additional business to the location?
Is The Building Size Suitable For The Type Of Commercial Real Estate?
Is the building you are acquiring the proper size for the prototype of the commercial investment properties? If the fit is not great, the tenant will be looking for another location constantly and may be leading you to a vacancy?
Avoid Conflicts With Present Tenants
Make sure you have no conflicts with multiple tenants in a shopping center that may be competing with each other or have severe restrictions in their leases that prohibit a large part of the market not to be able for you to rent to while they are a tenant.
Good Tenants In Commercial Investment Properties Bring A Better Loan Rate
Good tenant,s that have great credit bring not only business to the location but may get you, the investor, a better loan rate on the property from the lender?
Invest In Multi-Purpose Buildings
