Commercial real estate is typically retail shops and offices while industrial real estate generally refers to factories and warehouses. The term "commercial real estate" is generally accepted these days as covering industrial as well as commercial real estate.
Despite the change over from imperial to metrics the old ways still persist, as many people still cannot fully relate to metrics. The conversions are:
1 metre=39.3701 inches
1 metre=3.28084 feet
1 square metre=10.764 square feet
1 hectare=2.47105 acres
Warehouses are primarily for storage and distribution and need to have a high roofline for pallet racking and other storage (6 meters minimum) and good access for large vehicles carrying containers. Factories are for manufacturing and are less reliant on height depending on the manufacturing industry involved. These premises would perhaps need to be in close proximity to public transport to cater for employees.
It's a matter of opinion in many respects, however well located and well-managed commercial or industrial real estate can perform extremely well and can pay huge dividends over the long term. Commercial and industrial real estate generally offers higher returns than residential real estate with fewer tenants’ turnover and tenancy problems. Remember that commercial and industrial tenants generally take minimum lease terms of 3 years while residential tenancies are often very short term which is costly as every time your property comes vacant there is loss of rent, advertising costs and leasing fees.
Collecting the rent is only part of the job. When you engage a specialist agent to manage your commercial and industrial property they do just that - they manage your property. Management means more than just collecting the rent. It involves: Advising on acceptable lease structures so that your investment not only retains its value but also has growth built in wherever possible. Negotiating lease terms with the tenant to obtain results that ensure that the value of your property is enhanced by the lease and not restricted or worse - devalued. Dealing with your tenant in an expert, professional manner regarding queries and problems that inevitably arise from time to time with the property and/or tenancy - these negotiations should only be handled by professionals to achieve the best outcome. Ensuring the property is maintained. Advising the owners on rental and sale values and generally keeping them informed of market trends. The future value of your property is dependent in no small way on the quality of it's management - to take chances with a non specialist or to adopt a "do it yourself" approach is unwise and likely to result in rough running for your investment and lower returns.
Agents’ fees are generally not regulated and are negotiable. Any successful investor will tell you that if you choose the right agent they are worth far more than the fees they charge. Many wealthy property investors owe their success to their choice of professional real estate agent and they did not gain that agent's loyalty by cutting fees. Never choose an agent on the fee structure alone. The final result is where the money is made not through negotiating lower fees.
This situation requires coordination as you need to locate and secure new premises and sub-let or assign your existing lease to a new tenant with as little time lapse as possible between the two transactions otherwise you will be paying double rent. Paying double rent for a short period of time at least is highly likely depending on demand for property in your location.
