Fundamentals of Commercial Real Estate

Real Estate Continuing Education Course

Course Description

Welcome to an Introduction to Commercial Property!

The Commercial Real Estate Industry touches virtually every aspect of business in the United States and most of the free world. Very few companies can grow without acquiring more land or additional office space, patients can’t use the services of a hospital unless it’s constructed and consumers can’t shop at a Wal-Mart without the development of Real Property.

Commercial Real Estate encompasses all aspects of sales, leasing, management, investment in or improvement of retail property, investment property, farmland, businesses, industries, medical facilities, and dozens of other types of property.

Our job in the industry is to assist in the lease, management, or sales of property, and to advise our clients of their best courses of action when deciding how to invest in or improve real property or a commercial asset.
