If you have the funds available, building a commercial property portfolio can be a savvy business investment. Whether you’re looking for premises as part of a broader business proposition or want to buy with a view to establishing a rental income stream, you should be able to find something to suit.
If you’re looking to buy a business, acquiring a property at the same time can make it a less risky, more attractive investment. The intrinsic value of property often makes it easier to secure funding at the outset and will provide ongoing opportunities for leveraging finance in the future. Commercial property is one of the best long-term investments, too, as values and rental returns track inflation and can deliver handsome returns over time. There are usually lots of options available at a wide range of price points – everything from storage units on industrial estates to town centre retail premises and holiday cottages in honeypot villages.
