Purchasing warehouses, factories and workshops can be cheaper than you think. However, there are many differences between an industrial property and a residential property that potential investors need to understand.
Industrial property’s income yield is higher than residential property, at about 6 to 9 per cent compared with 3 to 3.5 per cent, but comes with higher risks:
- A much more complicated lease, usually organised by a solicitor.
- When they become vacant, they are usually vacant for a long period of time.
- Leases are based on net rent – such as council rates and maintenance.
Buyers should look for properties with quality tenants, a flexible layout and a location close to freeways for transportation purposes.
When purchasing smaller industrial property within a complex, check for sufficient car park bays.
