The Valuation of Property

Commercial real estate can refer to any number of property types from residential, to commercial, to agriculturally zoned land. Even completely unused land can be a commercial investment to the right party. Investors generally have two methods of making money in the commercial real estate market: capital gains and rental income.

Capital Gains

A capital gain refers to any profit (gain) made from the sale of owned property (capital). In general, the intent of capital gains in commercial real estate is to purchase a property for a low price and then either spend some money refurbishing the property, or immediately try to sell it again for a profit. This method of commercial real estate practice is often called “house flipping” but can also apply to lots of land, office buildings, or any other kind of property that an investor expects to increase in value. As with any other capital gain, income gained from house flipping will be taxed using capital gains tax.

Rental Income

The more stable form of income in the commercial real estate world, rental income refers to funds paid for the use of a facility. While many people will associate rental income with rent paid to live in a house or apartment, rental income can also refer to businesses leasing out a storefront or office space. Even bare lots of land can be rental properties if someone is paying the owner to utilize it for a set period of time. Rental income has its own taxation method separate from income or capital gains tax.
