Investments took a hard turn at the beginning of the global financial crisis of 2007-2008, but have since been slowly but surely recovering. In fact, this year is expected to see the strongest growth of the U.S. economy since the crisis began. The labor market in particular is supposed to reach its strongest level, and corporate spending will increase for the first time in quite a long time. Now is an opportune time to start investing again. Specifically, investment in construction loans is more than promising.
Why invest in commercial real estate? Simply put, it’s the up-and-coming investment emerging out of the economic recession. Commercial real estate investing is gaining notoriety as well as popularity. Between 2014 to 2017, approximately $1.4 trillion’s worth of commercial mortgage loans are expected to mature, nearly a quarter of which will mature in the form of commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS). CMBS are investments backed up by commercial real estate loans rather than residential mortgages. Because of their recent successes and their relatively high rate of returns, CMBS number at about 11,000 and are provided by 35 lending firms, making them an ideal investment choice for investors worried about an improving but still volatile market.
Investors look for strong returns from an investment option as well as confidence and a proven record of success from investment firms. Construction loans for commercial buildings are rising in popularity for a reason. Investors feel quite confident in investments such as CMBS, which are, comparatively speaking, stable and lucrative. You don’t have to be a millionaire to invest in commercial real estate. The best investments are made by those who know how much to invest, where to invest it in, and when to continue, or discontinue, investing. Such investments are recently coming in the form of commercial real estate.
