Commercial Real Estate Q&A

What qualifies as commercial real estate?
Any for-profit, non-residential property can be considered commercial real estate. In some states, residential property with more than a certain number of units may also be considered commercial property for borrowing and tax purposes.
What is the commercial real estate industry?
The commercial real estate industry encompasses the buying, selling, leasing, financing, development and construction of commercial spaces. The top ten property owners in New York City alone hold over 546 million square feet of property and operate with an aggregate sum of $8.1 billion, according to TRD's 2019 Data Book.
Who buys and sells commercial real estate?
