Mixed-use Real Estate Investments

What is Mixed-use Real Estate Investments?

Mixed use real estate is property that can support residential, cultural, industrial, retail, and/or institutional use, all under one roof. Like residential and some types of commercial real estate, location is very important, if not the most important facor in a retail property. If you are considering a mixed-use real estate investment you will want to prioritize location. Your goal should be to find a property in an area that has a strong residential and commercial presence. Businesses that operate in areas where people live tend to do well due to mere convenience (depending on the type of business of course). Your ideal tenants, with hopes to occupy the space long term, will be reflective of the culture and community customs of your choice location. So, be sure vet your target location well.

The most successful mixed use real estate investments are dynamic. They incorporate a diverse range of industries i.e. casual to fine dining, retail to office space, or shipment center to artist studio, with residential units occupying the top floors. Typically, the more diverse a property is, the more attractive it will be.

Mixed-use Real Estate Investments Example

Choosing the right type of mixed-use property can be taxing. If you take on two types of real estate in a one mixed-use property, you should be conducting double the due diligence for each unit with its intended use in mind. Take for instance the following factors to consider when reviewing an available mixed-use property listing:

  • Property Type: this describes the intended use of the property, in this case a listing could include: mixed-use multifamily, retail, etc.
  • Tenancy: this refers to how many tenants occupy a property, multi-tenancy would be the case in a mixed use property.
  • Class: this refers to how buildings are categorized in commercial property based on quality, age, and amenities. For mixed-use it would be wise to stay in the A and high B class range.
  • Net Rentable (sq ft): is how many rentable square feet are included in the property.
  • Units: this refers to how many units, of any type of intended use, are included in the property.
  • Number of Stories: is the number of floors in the property.
  • Permitted zoning: this refers to how different functions of the property are separated, permitted, and documented for record keeping purposes.
  • Lot Size (sq ft): this refers to the size of a plot of land that makes up a property, typically measured by acres.
  • Price/Sq Ft: is the individual price of each square foot of the property.
  • APN (Assessor’s Parcel Number): this refers to a number assigned by the tax assessor of that jurisdiction for record keeping and identification purposes for that specific property.
  • Price per Unit: refers to the price per unit paid by the investor or real estate owner based on the listing price.

In Summary

A mixed use real estate investment is a complex venture to take on, but with great risk often comes great reward. If you pick a good location with diverse commercial tenants, your property could become the new hot spot of the neighborhood. Keep in mind, with a mixed-use property you not only have to keep track of tenant information, but types of leases and compliance with those leases too. A mixed-use real estate investment done right has potential to incur large profit margins, so make sure you do the necessary work and research if you are interested in this type of real estate.
