Investing in retail real estate
Whether it’s shopping malls or centres, strip malls, retail parks, high-end outlets, or mixed-use centres, retail is undoubtedly one of the fastest-moving and challenging real estate asset classes. But consumers love shopping and expect shopping malls and centres to offer much more than just clothing, shoes and accessory shops.
They’re in the entertainment business. To compete they must have a strong mix of not only fashion, but also food and other amenities such as grocery stores, fitness clubs and cinemas. It’s this mix that makes retail properties profitable and sustainable.
What does this all mean? For investors, market analysis and business rigour play a key role in deciding on the right sort of investment. If you’re selling retail assets, finding qualified investors quickly is a key priority.
