Reasons Why You Should Be A Commercial Real Estate Investor
I learned from my mentor that when you have a why and it’s clear and it’s powerful, then the how becomes not so difficult. Let me share with you 3 compelling reasons why to become a commercial estate investor.
1. Cash flow Commercial Real estate investments are often structured to deliver steady cash flow with dividends that are distributed to investors monthly, quarterly or annually. The two main options for investors are to make either an equity investment or a debt investment.
3. You’re Going to Have Life Options.
Commercial real estate affords you life options. Wouldn’t you like to have the option of working less or pursuing a passion without having to worry about the bills or possibly paying cash for your kids’ college. Commercial estate affords you those options.
4. Just (1) Deal
All it takes is one commercial deal to dramatically effect your financial life. Just one commercial deal can benefit you for the rest of your life, including your children’s lives with the tremendous cash flow and residual income payments.
