Now, you’ll need to decide what kind of commercial property you are looking to invest in. You’ll also need to know if the building you’re investing in is going to be for your own business, if you want to rent it out, if you plan to build equity, or if you have another idea. Maybe you already have this all in mind. But the trend right now is affordable housing. It’s a priority, but it’s been a challenge to meet the demand for it in Utah. Innovation in the multi-family space may be necessary in the future to keep up with the demand. And that could be a perfect commercial real estate opportunity for you.
