How to Increase the Yield of your Commercial Property
Commercial properties are known for their high-income potential. And that’s because they produce more capital growth than residential assets do, which means you can get a higher yield out of them! So what strategies can you apply to boost your yields?
To understand the drivers of an investment, one must first identify their motivation. The key to achieving a strong ROI on your commercial property investment is identifying the right project and investing in it.
To do this, you should focus primarily on two things: understanding what makes projects profitable (ROI) or loss-making; then selecting which of these will provide for the highest return based on that criteria alone – without any other factors involved like location-specific issues like tenant demand, etc., which can vary.
Here are the top strategies to increase the yields of commercial investments.
You never know what could be waiting around the next corner!
When shopping for a property, it is important to understand the different levels of demand and availability in your area. Commercial properties can still provide great returns even if they’re located outside major metropolitan areas; just remember that you’ll need more capital at hand!
Once more, it narrows down to the extent of your research and how well you understand the dynamics of the market you’re pouring yourself into. The current landscape of the banking industry is causing many changes and challenges for both commercial investors as well as consumers. Commercial banks are closing branches due to mergers, acquisitions, or dissolution.
Yet, if you live in a regional area and your town has at least 10k people then it is possible that the bank branch may be prime for investment. This would mean they are unlikely to close because there’s no other competition near them – which means this could become an opportunity as well!
The cost of commercial real estate in regional areas is often much lower than that found within metropolitan regions. However, these properties can still perform just as strongly and yield higher returns on investment for your money!
Think twice about your preferred asset
The commercial real estate market is a fickle thing. There are many factors that can change its flavor, but savvy investors will find success by going against what everyone else does – especially when there’s money to be made!
Childcare centers and petrol stations are great examples. They have succeeded over the unpopularity they experienced a few years ago, and are the market’s giants that are commanding higher prices.
The potential for above-average returns lies in finding an underperforming asset class that others may not be so keen on. However, there’s also risk involved with this type of approach; if it doesn’t work out then your investigation didn’t pay off and you’ll have lost money despite doing some research into what could have been successful investments.
Vacancies are unattractive
Viability in today’s environment is a challenge. Vacancy and reduced ROI can be just the beginning if you don’t choose your property wisely – it could also lead to cash flow depletion, sleepless nights, or even capital erosion! The good news? There’s more than one way around this problem. The more versatile commercial properties are better suited for avoiding vacancies.
Supermarkets and industrial properties suit this criterion perfectly.
The importance of adding value cannot be understated
In today’s competitive market it is important to be able to offer your property in the best possible condition. Commercial property offers the opportunity for savvy investors to increase their yield and lease strength with minimal effort which would in the long run appraise the property higher. If you purchase an asset with a 2-year lease and are able to convert that into 5 years’ worth of lease, this will increase its value for buyers looking at investing or buying from you!
Another proven way to get a higher valuation on your property is by purchasing an under-rented asset. For example, if you purchase an industrial building that currently rents for less than the market rate then you can raise the rent twice; to the market standards and during the reviewing cycle. So long as those increases align with overall economic growth rates should lead to not only making more money but also increasing how valuable the said real estate becomes!
Smart investors know to capitalize on periodical rent increments
If you want to make sure that your property is generating more cash, it’s important not only to look at the current rent amount but to also analyze how much higher or lower than average they can be in the future. The best way do this? Allow for an annual increase with leases having such a provision built into them! The most common approach is coinciding with CPI (Consumer Price Index).
The other main option is a fixed percentage increase of between three to five percent. This would be more affordable for most tenants, but some may find an even higher rate unsustainable and cannot afford such large jumps in cost each year
In order to make the most of property investment, it is important that you know how much your return on investment will be. Many markets use an annual percentage rate (APR) or three percent as their standard formula for computing returns over time and with each increase in price coming into fruition monthly rather than just once at the purchase date. Hence, buying low can actually help put more money back into our pockets should we choose re-selling right away!
Dip your foot in the long game
Finding the right property for your business can be difficult. There are hundreds of properties available, but only a handful will meet all criteria necessary to make them worthy as investment-grade assets – meaning they’re high quality and boast secure tenants!
The greatest feature linked to investment-grade commercial assets is long-term rental growth. There are a number of factors that contribute to the long-term rental growth of your property. Some of them include quality of tenants, maintenance, quality of management, and compliance with the law.
This makes it crucial that you contact leading agents who know how important this type of real estate is and know how to beat around the market’s uncertainty.
