2. Identify

When looking for a commercial real estate investment, it is important to identify the property that best suits your needs and goals. Carefully assess what you're looking for and what type of return you expect from your investment. Consider factors such as location, amenities, cost, and marketability. Once you have an idea of what type of property you'd like to invest in, you can begin researching available options. Evaluate different properties and their associated expenses to determine which one will be the most profitable in the long term. Additionally, investigate any potential legal issues or other risks associated with a particular property before making any decisions. After researching potential commercial real-estate investments, you can make an informed decision about which property will be the best fit for you.

4. Method

When investing in Commercial Real Estate with CCP, most individuals will utilize their discretionary funds to invest. However, other methods have gained traction in recent years, including self-directed IRAs and Cash Balance pension plans.

  1. Self-Directed IRAs: Your ability to self-direct your retirement plans depends on whether you can roll over or transfer funds to a custodian who allows you to self-direct your IRA. For example, if you have an existing IRA with a brokerage or bank, that IRA can always be transferred or rolled over to a custodian who allows you to self-direct your account and won’t restrict your investments to mutual funds, stocks, and bonds. Also, if you have an old 401(k) account from a former employer, you can roll over those funds from your 401(k) account to a self-directed IRA custodian by doing a rollover.
  2. Cash Balance Pension Plans: Cash Balance pension plans are a relatively unknown retirement vehicle. However, they may also be used to invest in Commercial Real Estate. They are commonly referred to as “hybrid” plans because they combine the high contribution limits of a traditionally defined benefit plan with the flexibility and portability of a 401(k).

5. Identify

Once you have identified the property that best fits your needs, it is time to select your commercial real estate investment. We can help you review the details of each potential property, taking into consideration all associated costs and fees. You can review the market analysis, title documents, and other details associated with the investment before making a final decision. Once you have selected the property, we will work with you to complete the paperwork necessary to secure your investment.


6. Invest:

Place your investment and earn all the benefits and of being a property owner.
