If you own a property and want to consider diversifying your assets, it may be time to consider commercial property investment via direct buying, listed trusts and unlisted trusts.
Commercial property is normally a superior cash flow focused investment, vs residential property historically provides the greatest returns through capital growth.
Commercial property is traditionally more expensive per property and, therefore, more difficult to own for the average person without combining resources.
The loan to value ratio is generally restricted to 70% because the asset values tend to fluctuate due to the tenants being businesses. Strength of the economy is often a good forward indicator for commercial property.
