Looking for a property to invest in? Commercial developments might be for you

Investing in property can be one of the best financial decisions a person can make, especially when you consider the importance of establishing multiple streams of income. Even as flashy new investment vehicles seem to appear on the scene almost every day, you might find that the property market is still among the most stable and rewarding places to put your money.

However, property can also be tough. A barrage of factors come into focus once you start honing down on a possible property to buy. Location, cost and potential for profit are just some of the things investors worry about.

Aside from residential properties, commercial developments come with their own perks and not many people out there may be aware of the advantages. Here are a few key reasons why investing in commercial properties may be suitable for you.

 

Enormous earning potential

While it’s true that some commercial developments often require larger amounts of capital when compared to residential properties, the earning potential is often much greater as well. This can be due to income streams (such as collecting rent from occupants). On average, commercial properties can fetch between 6%-12% returns off the original price and this should be considered a good outcome.

 

Reliable business leases

You can enjoy financial gains from commercial developments but you are typically also paying for better peace of mind. Reputable businesses often have a vested interest in retaining the appeal and consistency of the premises from which they operate (for a better perception of their credibility in the eyes of their customers and clients).

As an investor, you may get tenants who take better care of the property and you may not have to worry too much about potential damage to the property.

Businesses can also be found leasing for longer periods of time. This means that, as an investor, you get to breathe easy and not worry too much about occupancy rates.

Properties like Rencana Royale TTDI offer tenants luxurious units that are already aesthetically appealing. This can make it much easier to rent these spaces out to online business owners, startups and more.

 

 

Laid-back lease terms

Another added advantage of commercial properties is that lease terms are more relaxed and aren’t as limiting as many of the other regulations surrounding residential properties.

In fact, commercial hybrid developments like Rencana Royale are equipped with regulations and layouts that can fit well with commercial purposes while being comfortable and homely as well.

 

Higher appreciation rates

As an asset, a commercial real estate investment has been known to provide excellent appreciation rates, gradually climbing in value when compared to many other types of investments. Commercial properties are known for appreciating in price due to factors such as proactive management, cost-effective perks like optimal usability and desirability of the asset as well as external factors like supply and demand imbalances.

6 Ways To Maximize Productivity In Your Commercial Space

___________________________

 

 

You’re ready to roll with your new working space. You’ve got the equipment, the necessary infrastructure for your business and you’re ready to get super production.

Somehow, however, it’s not turning out the way you planned. Production is slow, timelines are running late and there’s an overall lack of motivation. How can you get over this? Is it just a phase?

Fortunately, there are plenty of proven and tested tactics to maximise productivity in your commercial space and send you sailing far above all your business milestones. Here are a few tips.

 

1. Get your priorities in order

It can be pretty difficult to get ahead of your work if your brainpower is being spent dealing with that super long to-do list you’ve given yourself. Bring focus to your routine.

Focus on no more than 3 priorities each day and leave the rest for tomorrow. Distractions can cause us to become easily overwhelmed, making it harder to focus on urgent tasks so cut back and prioritise. Things should smoothen out naturally.

 

2. Capitalize on a good working environment

Sometimes, productivity can be greatly affected by your place of work. Are you cramping yourself in a claustrophobic space that’s uncomfortable and stress-inducing? You may not even realize that your surroundings are sucking up all your productive energy.

Include more greenery to encourage oxygen circulation, opt for working spaces with more room for you to move around and focus more on the pleasant aesthetics that you can add to your commercial unit. Rencana Royale, a luxurious hybrid commercial development located in TTDI, features lush greenery and spacious suites that can help you fully unleash your productivity.

 

3. Find a good seat

Yes, your working environment can be super important but the components within that environment can be just as important. Choose better, more ergonomic task chairs to help alleviate the tension from sitting at a computer all day long (which you may find brutal on your body).

If our bodies are not responding well to the things we interact with, our productivity levels can be reduced. Make sure you pay attention to the comfort and quality of your seat.

 

4. Implement a results-oriented mindset

You might often find that people count the number of hours and minutes they put into their work days in order to feel satisfied and fulfilled. However, this could lead to you just feeling busy rather than focusing on what truly matters; results.

So, transform your mindset into one that prioritises results and not the number of hours you spend ‘on the clock’. Your productivity could begin to skyrocket.

 

5. Organize your meetings with precision

You have a stack load of work to do, only to be called in for a meeting that takes 2 hours to wrap up. You’re probably familiar with this scenario. Meetings can be a huge time waster but by cutting your meetings down to 20-minute sessions max, you just might find that you have more time in the day to get actual work done.

Why not try standing meetings? People may have a tendency to get their points across much faster when they aren’t sitting around a board room table.

Meeting locations can also play a big role in convenience as well as duration. At Rencana Royale TTDI, you can find conference rooms and meeting rooms that can help you accommodate large groups of people.

 

6. Don’t forget to take breaks

At the end of the day, we’re just human. Machines may be able to perform a staggering number of tasks without taking time off but people tend to work better when they are well rested.

Pace yourself during working hours and take breaks to relax or exercise, which can stimulate the brain and alleviate stress. Rencana Royale is a green development with relaxing layouts that can help busy urbanites enjoy their workdays.
