I invest in commercial real estate and have added couple of properties in my portfolio in last five years.
The yields in commercial real estate were fantastic 5 years ago sitting around 11-14 per cent depending on the deal…these days it hovers around 7 to 9%.CP is great for cash flow and with current yield you can free up a property in 8-10 years and then it generates FCF…
Cons of commercial properties in my opinion

  1. It also depends on asset type, location and many other factors but generally speaking if it’s not in tight demand area then desirability of the property decreases once your property gets little old in 5-7 years especially where there is a lot of new supply. I suggest going for the best asset to keep your CF sustainable

  2. Aim for corporate clients as the CF would be more sustainable and lease will be longer.

  3. You want to make sure on the supply side of the equation. Generally speaking there is a lot of supply in India at the moment and it can compress the yields further and increase the vacancies.

  4. You will only get the simulated capital growth if your asset selection is spot on.

  5. Dont go for used CP…Aim for new ones to achieve higher yield

  6. I feel 7 percent is bit low…even platforms like propertyshare.com with best grade properties fetch around 9 percent.

Good luck

Have you incorporated ongoing fees like annual maintenance…
If your tenants leave after 5 year you may need to renovate a bit.

Exactly, how I reached to propertyshare, started looking for better yield for CPs but couldnt find any properties which were in the budget range and offered good yields. Generally large corporate offices have much higher yield than small offices/shops and propertyshare lets you invest in that but don’t know much about their performance.

No I haven’t but even after including that NET FV is still +ve

No,thats not correct.No major differences yieldwise just because of asset size.

Yes, that’s what i meant basically
