by Abdul Basit Grow with Us

Commercial real estate is the easiest option when it comes to investing in real estate. Because commercial real estate can return your investment with beneficial profits. In simple terms, commercial real estate is any building or complex that is used for business purposes and is meant to generate income by renting or selling. For example, coworking spaces or apartment complexes.

Commercial real estate involves a variety of different types and structures including but not limited to:

  • Multi use offices

  • Hotels

  • Shopping centers

  • Residential buildings

  • Storage facilities


When you are looking for investment properties, commercial real estate is the option that is both satisfying and bound to generate profits in the future. Unlike any other investment option, in commercial real estate, the investor can buy a property by paying a certain amount of money and interest over a period of time to finally acquire the property. Off plan properties in Ajman offer a lucrative variety of packages to their customers so that they can choose the option that suits them best.


There are some options that you can use to invest in commercial real estate if you have little money. You need to make sure that you pick a strategy that is right for you.

Here are some choices that you can consider:

  1. Real Estate Investment Trusts

A real estate investment trust commonly known as “REIT” is a company that owns, functions and finances income generating real estate. Real estate investment trusts are a good option for small scale inventors who do not want to go through the trouble of finding a good property and managing them.


Through REITs, anybody is allowed to invest in real estate through individual company stock or exchange traded funds (ETF). Any new investor or someone who is new to investment, should go for a REIT option as it has far more options and opportunities. REIT stockholders earn a certain amount of money without actually searching for or managing property. Through clever investments, you can acquire freehold apartments for which you will be the sole owner.

  1. Real Estate Crowdfunding Platforms

With the help of widely used real estate crowdfunding platforms, you can buy properties with little knowledge and capital. In some platforms, the minimum required investment is as low as $10. Crowdfunding is a comparatively old concept and requires clear submission of documents before you can avail it. Even if you do not have a huge sum of money to invest or an adequate amount of capital, you can still choose this option because of its low amount of investment.


Off-plan properties in Ajman offer different ranges of packages regarding real estate crowdfunding platforms to their clients. Freehold apartments can be bought by small investors if they choose an intelligent real estate crowdfunding platform.

  1. Hard Money Loan

A hard money loan is a type of loan through which a borrower receives funds secured by real property. It is an asset-based short-term loan. Hard money lenders do not implement hard rules and regulations and are often lenient in their guidelines. The typical hard money lenders generally have a timeline between six to 24 months for payback.


If you choose a hard money loan for your commercial real estate investment, be assured that you need to pay it back in the required time. Hard money lenders are still a better option than all the other options available because of their mild rules and guidelines. There are several options for hard money lenders if you are looking to buy off-plan properties in Ajman. Freehold apartments can be bought through hard money lenders’ loans.

  1. Taking On A Partner

If you are new to investment, it is better to stay on the safe side and choose a partner with whom you can invest. If you do not possess the capital for a huge investment but still have the mind to put in time and effort, you can partner with people for investment. In addition to this, other people want to invest but are facing the same issue as you and do not own a lot of money. You can partner up with them and this way you can have multiple partners who all are invested in a single property.

Here, commitment and dedication are really important.


You need to look for investors who are willing to partner with you. If you network with your local real estate investment groups or attend networking events, you will surely find people who are also looking for partners. This option is feasible for comparatively new investors as it allows them to have one or multiple partners they can invest with which is always good for newcomers.

  1. Seller Financing

This method of commercial real estate investment involves a seller who finances a part of the purchase price and then takes payments over time. The seller can also provide a lower payment option if they are willing to. But finding these types of sellers is not easy and can take some time to find. You need to be conscious and consistent to find the right seller. Do your research thoroughly and you will be able to find the right seller.
