Like any other investment, investing in commercial property comes with great advantages and potential risks. Commercial property is sensitive to economic conditions, so when there is a downturn, demand for office premises may tend to dip. Moreover, it may take longer to find a tenant for a commercial space than for an apartment. Hence, commercial properties usually have long vacancies, which means that as an owner, you will need to cover the cost during vacant periods.
However, the pros of expanding your commercial property over residential property portfolio are numerous. Aside from offering higher returns than residential property, commercial property comes with longer leases. While residential tenancies may turn over every six to 12 months, a commercial tenancy lasts longer, as tenants tend to stay put for greater periods especially when they have invested capital customizing the space. This makes commercial real estate an investment option that offers impressive returns and considerable monthly cash flows.

Future trends in commercial property development

Invest in buildings that work. Make sure that you are investing in office space that is functional and enables businesses to operate efficiently and productively. Buildings that offer functional and efficient floor plates, high quality lifts and other facilities such as convenient and sufficient parking and access to public transport are likely to remain in demand.

Latest industry reports throw light upon the fact that in the coming years there will be a great emphasis on building safety and more demand for well-maintained buildings with better fire safety and other systems. Experts suggest that the market will witness new government regulations where building owners will have to adhere to stringent safety guidelines.

The study also highlights a trend towards 'Build-to-Suit' (BTS) which involves developers building schemes according to the specifications provided by corporate tenants, who then commit to either lease or purchase the premises upon completion. The market seems to be leaning towards the concept of Sale and Leaseback (SLB). This is a means by which occupiers of existing buildings can free up capital which they can pump back into their business.
