There are a few different ways to make a commercial property investment.
Investors can make commercial property investments directly, however, it can be expensive and requires an investor to do research and understand the market they are investing in. Investors should also forecast the ongoing profitability of the investment and assess the potential for long term capital gains. Once purchased, you will then need to manage your tenants, and the ongoing maintenance of the property.
An unlisted property fund is a form of property investment that provides investors the opportunity to gain access to higher quality commercial property assets with a smaller minimum investment. By investing in an unlisted property fund, investors will receive units/shares in the fund/company which holds the property asset(s) that are managed by a professional property investment manager such as Centuria.
There are generally two kinds of unlisted property funds:
Investments in Centuria’s unlisted property funds can be traded on the Secondary Market operated by Centuria New Zealand.
Listed property funds are similar to unlisted open-ended funds but provide further liquidity through being listed on a stock exchange where investments are regularly traded. An investor prioritising liquidity tends to be drawn to listed property investments because units/shares in the listed funds can be purchased and sold on the New Zealand’s Exchange (NZX).
