Residential Real Estate
As the name suggests, residential real estate is intended for living purposes. If residential properties are not owned by owners but are used for financial gain, they have then considered investment properties. Below are the most common types of residential real estate properties:
Single-family homes are usually isolated from other residences and are the most common type of residential real estate.
Condominiums are similar to apartments, but each unit is owned by individuals.
Townhouses are attached to other residences but have their own private entrance.
Cooperative apartments are those in which the residents both own and operate the property.
Commercial Real Estate
Commercial real estate is an integral part of any city and is used for business purposes. When compared to residential properties, they tend to be larger and more expensive, but can oftentimes generate higher yields. Here is the breakdown of different types of commercial properties:
Multifamily refers to residential properties with more than five units. It is often described as an apartment complex or apartment building.
Office properties can range from small single-story buildings to large skyscrapers; they are typically used for business operations.
Retail properties are designed for businesses that sell products or services to customers.
Industrial properties can include factories and warehouses; they are set up to manufacture and store goods.
Mixed-use properties can include a combination of two or more commercial properties e.g., multifamily and retail.
The ultimate goal of real estate investors is to earn a profit, receive tax advantages, and to expand their portfolio over the long term.
