Commercial Acreage - Land Broker MLS

As our metropolitan areas continue to grow and with more people moving into the suburbs and rural areas, there is an increased need for commercial property to provide industrial space, office space, and retail space. Like those metropolitan areas, rural land is seeing development, too, especially aimed at easy freeway access not only for strip malls but for larger warehouse facilities and industrial facilities as well.

Communities throughout the U.S. are looking for land developers to attract companies and corporations to set up business in their locale and offer jobs along with economic growth. This may involve as little as two acres to hundreds of acres dependent upon the needs. And, it is something the investor can capitalize on.

Commercial Property Types

Commercial property involves any land used for any form of business. Every city and county across the U.S. have their own specific designations for commercial properties and their uses, but in general terms, the property is used to develop a profit.

Commercial properties can be broken down into these areas:

  • Multifamily Housing – apartment complexes
  • Motels and Hotels – includes resorts and casinos
  • Office Buildings – small or large including medical facilities, law offices, etc.
  • Retail Stores & Gas Stations – with independent buildings or a strip mall
  • Industrial Complexes – from light industry to heavy manufacturing, and warehousing
  • Special Use – for example, churches and entertainment facilities such as bowling alleys,
  • miniature golf, or waterslide parks

Investing in Development and Income Property

Increased demand for commercial properties outside of city limits, and outward from the more urban populations, has led to an increase in investment for many landowners and developers. When looking at an investment property, you may want to consider commercial land rather than private land, whether you are a developer or not.

A lot of properties may already have some building development in places such as a gas station combined with a fast-food facility, or a warehouse and workshop. Other properties may be barren just waiting for that spark of ingenuity and interest.

When purchasing commercial property, remember that along with it comes to the responsibilities of the property owner. If you are or want to become an income property manager, that's great. Or, you may wish to hire an experienced firm to handle the property for you.
