Important Things to Know When Investing

Commercial real estate investing in Houston is rewarding. But there are a few things you should be sure to remember. If you’ve never invested in commercial real estate before, you might be tempted to try it alone. At the same time, without previous experience, this the best idea. Doing it alone means you do everything alone – purchasing, owning, and operating assets. In the end, doing it alone could be an expensive mistake.

Failing to do your due diligence before a purchase could create a more expensive investment than you bargained for.

Also, more than a few investors have failed at commercial real estate because they didn’t do their due diligence. Even if a property looks great (either in person or on paper), you need detailed, verified information (like CPA-audited financial reports and tax returns). Basically, failing to do your due diligence before a purchase could create a more expensive investment than you bargained for.

Moreover, once you purchase a property, you need contingency plans. Once you own the property, you and only you must take responsibility for it. Both the returns and the rewards are yours, but also the headaches. Be sure to brainstorm a few worst-case scenarios and be prepared by having a plan as well as money saved for ‘rainy days.’

The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) oversees and regulates the Texas commercial real estate industry. To remain in good standing, every firm must stay on top of the latest commercial real estate legal updates. For example, as a TREC Corporate Broker, CXRE Group (registered as CXRE LLC, License #9004453), we’re always in the loop.

Pro-tip: Check your broker’s license at the TREC website.

On top of that, TREC creates and enforces commercial real estate regulations.

For example, there are modifications to AMT (alternative minimum tax), carried interest, depreciation, and the corporate tax rate. Because these tax code changes often have a direct impact on your investments, we do our best to keep you up to date on changes that affect your assets.
