Potential returns from a commercial property investment can also come from an increase in the property’s value over time. A number of factors contribute to an increase in value, including the scarcity of land and therefore an increase in demand, or through a “value-add” in the form of improvements to the property.
Unlike other forms of investment such as the stock market, commercial property investments often provide stable cash flow through rental income and also through an increase in intrinsic value.
