Retail Investment Properties

There are several benefits to investing in a retail commercial space, such as longer leases, a high return on your investment, and smaller deposits. There are, however, several downsides as well, such as sensitivity to changes in the local Ohio economy. With the team of retail investment professionals at Perfect RealEstate Investments, you will receive expert guidance and advice to ensure you are successful.

The most common retail properties that investors look at are:

  • Strip/Convenience centers
  • Community Center
  • Single Tenant Properties
  • Mixed-Use

Strip/Convenience Centers

  • These are often self-managed and good for local Ohio investors. There are usually several tenants, but it’s important to find a center with a good mix of different tenants and store types.

Community Centers

  • These can also be self-managed but are normally professionally managed and are good for both local as well as distant/out-of-state investors.

Single-Tenant Properties

  • Depending on how the lease is structured, can be a good source of passive income. This is a good investment for just about anybody and we highly recommend it.
  • In all commercial real estate investments, including retail property investments, always look at Cash-on-Cash.
