Compared to residential ventures, commercial real estate is a whole different level of complexity. There are, however, pros and cons to engaging in both sides of the playing field. With a hotel project, for example, there are ordinances to follow and permits to acquire for hotel guests’ safety. The building must be up to code and be able to comfortably sustain the maximum occupancy. Before you are ready to present your proposal to would-be investors, it’s important to also make sure with officials that you will be allowed to build the size hotel you are envisioning and that it doesn’t infringe upon any local laws, such as within the tourism industry. Because it is a very risky gamble, only certain types of investors will be willing to dive into this type of real estate.
