2017 is still young and you might be looking to invest in real estate or just following your curiosity on the hottest commercial properties available these days. Whatever your reasons, read on for a list of the best picks of 2017 for commercial investments:

Warehouses for Industrial Use

Since the great recession of 2008, industrial warehouses continue to dominate the commercial real estate market mainly from a continuous increase in demand from different sectors. Both commercial lenders and real estate investors prefer investing in industrial warehouses as they have a steady demand and good returns.

Housing for Students

As demand increases, investments in student houses are showing a steady growth attracting investors from all quarters. However, consider the location when looking to invest in student housing. Look for properties within walking distance from campuses, and conduct a thorough research to understand student demands fully, their favorite properties and the market rates. Often, you will find better access to funds with both commercial bridge lenders and conventional lenders when working with student housing.


After the 41 percent drop in hotel values in 2009, investors are taking their time before investing in hotels and properties targeted at the tourism industry. If you believe a hotel is a worthy investment, do not let the hype and colorful advertisements fool you. Good locations can easily turn into nightmares: study industry trends and speak with experts to help you in the decision-making process. Additionally, you will have a harder time accessing funds for hotels unless you focus fully on traditional lenders such as banks.

Senior Housing

Although Senior Housing does not appear on the list, there are several industry experts pushing investors towards these types of commercial properties as market demand increases. As more and more people live longer than any other generation, strategically located Senior Housing could be a great investment in 2017 and the future.
