Time to trade your multifamily property into a Commercial or NNN property?

Many real estate investors are transitioning from Multifamily investments to commercial and NNN investments. Why are they doing this? Because they are tired of dealing with the day-to-day challenges of managing residential properties. This pace has accelerated over the last two years as residential tenants have been unable or unwilling to pay rent as a result of COVID and governments have instituted new landlord-tenant laws that make it more difficult to manage property and limit rent increases by instituting rent control laws.

While residential investments offer the ability to increase rents as expenses increase, properties with NNN leases shift the payment responsibilities to the tenants, reducing risk for the owner of the real estate. As Residential CAP Rates keep dropping, they tend to be in line with NNN leased properties.
