Investing Isn’t Scary | 3 Fear-free Solutions for Commercial Real Estate Investors

Investing word art

The fall season and its festivities puts emphasis on all things spooky and even highlights our fears. But while one standardly envisions ghosts, vampires, or zombies when it comes to Halloween fears, the world of commercial real estate has a league of fears that are different, but equally terrifying. When it comes to commercial real estate investing, there may be many fears tied to the decision to invest. However, as one must face their fears as a decision to invest moves forward, an investment with a Millcreek Commercial property can successfully dispel many of the fears that can consume investors. Here are three common fears that investors face and how Millcreek Commercial can be the antidote for any previous fear-inducing investments.

Losing money

One of the biggest fears tied to investing your hard-earned cash into an investment property is the thought of losing it all. Millcreek Commercial values its investors contributions, which is why they ensure that all investment properties are backed by a corporate guarantee. A corporate guarantee is a contract between a corporate entity or individual and a debtor. In this contract, the guarantor agrees to take responsibility for the debtor’s obligations, such as repaying a debt. Millcreek Commercial ensures that any commercial property has a corporate guarantee to protect investors. Investors with Millcreek Commercial properties can rest assured that they will not lose money, rather benefit from a steady stream of passive income.

Choosing a bad investment

Another fear in the commercial real estate investment world may include choosing a bad investment. In terms of commercial real estate, a “bad investment” could equal a property that goes under, an unreliable tenant, or a property that requires extensive responsibility on part of the investor. Millcreek Commercial brings experience to the table by identifying and purchasing profitable properties that will benefit the portfolios of investors. One key way that Millcreek Commercial avoids a “bad investment” from the beginning is through purchasing properties with “recession resilience”, or in other words, properties that have tenants who thrive in any economic environment.  The types of properties included in Millcreek Commercial’s portfolio include pharmacies, convenience stores, and medical centers.

After identifying the property, Millcreek will ensure that the property meets three of four requirements: single tenant, long-term lease, investment grade, and triple-net leased. In addition, Millcreek Commercial will travel to the property for a personalized inspection of the property, building, and the surrounding area. Millcreek Commercial’s years of experience in identifying profitable properties allows investors to avoid having to fear getting stuck with a “bad investment”. Their expertise can help investors enjoy a quality property that has been identified and vetted by seasoned professionals.

Not having enough money to get started

In addition to finding a quality property, another large hurdle when starting an investment portfolio is being able to afford a commercial property investment. Most people don’t have a few million dollars burning a hole in their pocket to buy a whole building. However, with the unique structure in which Millcreek Commercial purchases their properties and uses fractional ownership, the fears of not being able to afford a commercial investment fade away with opportunities to invest with an amount that is suitable for each investor and their budget.


When comes to a commercial real estate investment, it can be natural to have some fears and hesitancies. However, with Millcreek Commercial, many of the common fears tied to a commercial real estate investment can be dissolved through investing in a Millcreek Commercial property.
