Pros of investing in a commercial property

A premium good location helps you to fetch a rental yield of 13% to 15%.

Normally lease is signed for 5 years and lease agreements carry a clause of annual increase irrespective of market conditions. Returns from commercial property investment are assured and beneficial in the long run.

If the location is good you can deal with corporates easily and will not have to run to get better rents and all other operational hassles will be less. Moreover, a satisfied tenant will attract and bring more customers in the vicinity. It is a bonus for better future yields.
  4. Furnishing cost – One of the key advantages of investing in a commercial property is nil furnishing cost. The raw unit can be easily handed over to the tenant.
