When Should You Sell A Commercial Property And When Should You Rent It Out

Investing in commercial property can be lucrative, but also requires different considerations than residential real estate. Returns on your commercial property investment will come in the form of selling or renting, but the best choice for your portfolio depends partly on your personal circumstances and the prevailing market conditions.

Here are some essential distinctions to help you find out if renting or selling your commercial property is the best option for you.

1.When to Sell:

When you're starting a new commercial project: If you're starting out with a new commercial project, consider integrating your existing property into the mix. However, if this commercial entity doesn't fit in with your new project's guidelines, and all you need is its capital value, then selling is the best course of action.

When the environment isn't sustainable: Assume you had a commercial property that functioned as a bakery supply store in an area full of hotels and cafes. Now, if these hotels and cafes cease to exist or no longer require your service, or if the area is simply not profitable anymore, then it might be a better option to read the market signals and sell it to someone who might use it for an entirely different purpose.

2.When to Rent:

Renting a commercial property sounds simpler than selling it. For instance, you can rent out the property when:

You don’t immediately need the proceeds from the sale of the property: If this commercial property is currently vacant, consider renting it out until you come across a more lucrative selling or investment opportunity.

When you want to turn it into an investment: Some commercial property owners actively try to convert commercial properties into investment opportunities by renting them out. In fact, if you rent out a commercial property for long enough and to the right parties, you can generate more capital in the long run while also keeping the property as an asset.

When there's a new business in the area: If your property is located in an area that is becoming a hub for a new industry or business, you're likely to find people keen to rent your property to set up their own operations within in the same industry. This way, your property will serve its commercial purpose and boost your profits.


Choosing between renting and selling can often be tricky as there are many things to consider in each case. Enlist an expert and have them weigh up the options for you, while considering your investment and portfolio goals.
