Many investors understand the benefits of direct investment into residential property, however the majority of investors do not invest in commercial investment property despite the superior investment returns available. The key reasons for this are:
- High level of capital required – a ‘small’ commercial property may cost upwards of $2million, with ‘medium’ or specialised properties starting from $4-$5million.
- Lack of liquidity – commercial properties generally take longer to sell than residential properties, and may take even up to several years to sell at a fair value
To help our clients overcome these key barriers GDA offers a range of solutions including syndication (where investors combine funds to invest in a single property as co-investors) and direct property trusts, which may hold one or more properties.
All properties and trusts are professionally managed, audited and regularly valued by professional valuers.
