Why would you want to own commercial property in Calgary? There are many benefits of owning commercial property, some of which are mentioned below.

Owner user

You can be your own landlord. Buying a commercial property where you can operate your current business makes a whole lot of sense. When you are renting your office space from someone else, your rental fees are helping the owner of that building pay the financing. If you own your building, you are essentially investing in your future. Your lease payments that normally would be paid to your landlord can now be applied to your building’s financing, so after a few years, you will have built equity in your commercial building.

Owning a commercial building with multiple tenants offers you a way to invest your money and see a return on your investment. Look for buildings with a positive cash flow. This means the money coming in from the rent is more than the money going out for expenses. Every building has expenses but if you can purchase one that has a positive return on your investment, it can be better than putting your hard-earned cash in the bank. With interest rates currently at an all-time low, wouldn’t you rather get a 7-8% return on your money than less than 1%?


Owning a commercial property allows you to leverage your money. The commercial real estate market can offer you ways to invest minimal amounts of cash in more than one property. When you own more than one property you have the opportunity to grow your profits at a quicker pace. When prices increase, you can sell one or all your properties and reap the rewards of your solid investment.

Control tenants

Owning a multi-tenanted commercial space for rent in Calgary allows you to control what type of tenants are in your building. You can choose the specific businesses that you want to have in your building to complement each other. Make sure to get long-term leases for all your tenants in the event you choose to sell your building. Having solid leases makes a building much more attractive to a potential buyer and certainly more viable for a commercial lender.

Choose your commercial investment property based on the recommendation from your Calgary commercial Realtor® who can provide you with all the necessary details you will need.
