Commercial real estate can be a great investment. However, prior to purchasing any kind of commercial real estate, you will want to do some research and take several things into account. First of all, you will to consider the physical condition of the building. You will need to consider how the property was used, what kind of condition the property is generally in, and whether there are any environmental issues or potential liability issues, such as asbestos or lead paint. You will need to consider what kind of building the building is and what kind of use the building is zoned for, such as whether it is a commercial building or an industrial building. You also need to consider what kind of limitations, if any, are placed on the property. Whether due to zoning laws or building codes or covenants, there may be limits to changes or alterations you can make to the property.
