Think big when you are investing in commercial real estate investments. If you believe that you can easily manage five units, keep in mind that it does not involve that much more work to manage 75 units instead. A five-unit building requires commercial financing just as the larger buildings do, and larger buildings end up costing less per unit.

Real estate experts are able to know a good deal right away.They have also developed a good feel for what types of deals are riskier than others, are good at calculating risk, and how to balance repair costs against long-term profit.

Look out for the motivated sellers. You want to make sure you find the ones that are highly motivated, especially the ones who are eager enough to sell below market value.
