When you think of successful commercial real estate investors, do names like Donald Trump and Conrad Hilton come to mind? Maybe you should put your name on that list.

Before you discount commercial real estate as a viable investment option, consider that there are many different types of commercial properties and not every transaction requires you to put millions of dollars into the deal. In fact, a relative of mine got started with small parking lot in a good location, paying less for it than he did for his family’s home. He purchased several adjoining properties over the years, eventually selling the whole thing for a substantial profit.

If a parking lot isn’t available or interesting to you, consider a warehouse, office building, retail center, or a multifamily building.

How to get started? It’s easier than it sounds. There are thousands of Texas REALTORS® who specialize in commercial real estate. If you have any friends or family who invest in commercial real estate, ask them for a recommendation. Or use the Texas REALTOR® search tool on texasrealestate.com.

Who knows? Maybe one day you’ll have a portfolio of high-rise buildings with your name on them.
