Market conditions also influence investors’ decisions. Sluggish sales, for instance, often discourage potential buyers. Sellers, in turn, may be encouraged to lease, rather than sell, Perth commercial real estate, depending on how the market fares. Leasing can, in fact, be an attractive option because it entails fewer responsibilities to the lessee, especially in terms of building maintenance. It’s not easy to tell if Australia’s commercial real estate market can survive without foreign investments. One thing’s for certain, though—overseas money will continue to pour in. As such, it would be a great idea for property sellers to learn how to have a piece of the action.

These recent developments, however, do not not make the commercial property sector impervious to other risks, such as property repricing (i.e. when foreign investments finally stop coming in) and tenancy risk (i.e. when commercial properties fail to attract enough tenants), which the RBA also acknowledges. A price correction may be beyond investors’ control, but they have the means to minimise tenancy risk. All they have to do is to strike a balance between meeting the needs of the tenants and those of the landlords. With these things in mind, any investor would do well to work with a commercial real estate company—such as Brett Halvorson & Associates, for instance—that can manage a property investment in Perth effectively.

However, some pay less attention to the management needs such a purchase may entail. Unlike a residential property, a commercial property requires a complex management system in order to stay profitable.
There are various tasks property managers are obliged to do and the productivity of the business depends on them. One is regular maintenance. The reason a lot of commercial properties depreciate quickly is that it’s not regularly maintained—heating and ventilation constantly are breaking down, plumbing systems are starting to rust, etc. Maintenance is a way to keep if not raise the value of a commercial property.
