Commercial real estate is a very different animal compared to residential real estate. Rather than investing in single-family homes or vacation rentals where you're dealing with a single tenant, you're investing in things like office space, warehouses, distribution centers, data centers, public storage, retail units, and multifamily apartment buildings, which can have dozens or even hundreds of tenants. The return potential can be high with commercial real estate but there are also risk factors to consider.
Author Doug Marshall explains how to determine when the timing is right to buy a commercial property and when it makes sense to take a pass on a deal, as well as how to position an investment for optimal cash flow over the long term. This book rates as one of the best general reads on investing and personal finance of all time, but there are some key lessons to be gleaned for real estate investors.
It's less about specific strategies and more about how to develop a wealth mindset that includes real estate as a focal point. The overarching theme is using real estate to generate passive income so that you're working smarter, not harder, to build a portfolio that produces consistent returns. If you're looking for motivation and inspiration as you ease into real estate investing, this book offers plenty of both.
