Real estate transactions don’t only involve houses. Many consumers need property for their place of business. Commercial real estate can include retail, office, industrial, and institutional properties, and it includes residential real estate if there are more than 4 residential units.
Real estate professionals licensed to work in commercial real estate have specialty education, and must have commercial real estate as an industry sector on their licence.
Please check the Find a Professional database before agreeing to work with someone for your commercial real estate needs. They must have the commercial area of practice listed on their licence.
The actual activities that commercial real estate professionals do are the same as residential or rural professionals, it’s the type of real estate that’s different.
Commercial real estate professionals can help buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants of commercial real estate.
