Commercial real estate investments : office buildings, office units, towers, hotels and entire resort complexes. The vast majority of companies and especially small to mid sized businesses elect to rent their office space from a landlord who may own the entire building or just a few units. Investors benefit from purchasing a commercial property and then having a company take out a long rental occupancy period.
Commercial property includes office buildings, industrial property, medical centers, hotels, malls, retail stores, farm land, multifamily housing buildings, warehouses, and garages. In many states, residential property containing more than a certain number of units qualifies as commercial property for borrowing and tax purposes.
