Financial experts agree that 2021 is poised to be a banner year for real estate investments. Understanding the key factors that will affect the profitability of your commercial investments can help you make the most positive moves for yourself and your investment portfolio. Here are five factors that will have a big impact on your overall ability to achieve higher revenues in the commercial real estate marketplace now and for the remainder of 2021.

Record Low-Interest Rates

The continuation of low interest rates in the housing and commercial real estate markets has contributed to the current buying frenzy seen in both of these sectors. This is expected to continue at least through the first half of 2021 as the economy struggles to recover from pandemic-related issues. Buying now could add up to big savings in interest and in fees over the life of your commercial real estate mortgage. By contrast, waiting until interest rates begin to rise again sometime later this year could cost you significantly more in interest for your real estate investments.

Soaring Rental Prices

Demand for commercial and residential rental properties has been increasing over the past few years. Rental prices are also moving upwards in response to this increase in demand. Acquiring properties in prime locations and with the most-wanted amenities will typically result in increased revenues and higher rental prices, which can put added cash in your pocket now and for as long as you own and rent out the properties.

Virtual Tours

With fears about the pandemic everywhere in 2020, investors and property owners can expect an increase in the number of virtual tours and closing processes requested by buyers and renters. By taking a visual tour of the property before or instead of visiting it in person, individuals and companies can often reduce the amount of face-time and risk involved in deciding on new premises or a new home. As the pandemic winds down, this trend is expected to continue for the foreseeable future and can make it easier for investors to compare properties with minimal legwork.

Bargains Are Still Available

Despite higher prices in many areas thanks to higher demand, bargains in the commercial real estate marketplace are still available. Staying alert and taking advantage of these opportunities can help you make the most appropriate choices for your investment portfolio and for your ongoing revenue streams. Properties that are zoned for in-demand uses are most likely to produce dependable revenues over the upcoming year.

Increased Demand for Alternative Lending

Recent economic challenges have created added demand for alternative funding sources. Alternative lenders can often provide funding when traditional banks cannot. By working with lenders like ReProp Financial, you can expand your real estate investment portfolio while ensuring that you have the best and most reliable source of funding for these and future investment opportunities.
