'Now is a good time' to invest in commercial property

Now is a "reasonable time" for people to think about commercial property investment vehicles, according to one industry commentator.

Andrew Pitts, editor at personal finance and investment magazine Money Observer, said that such an option could be considered by those who want to generate a yield and an income from their investment.

"Commercial property does offer some interesting opportunities at the moment. It should be predominantly seen from an income perspective and not a capital gains perspective," stated Mr Pitts.

His comments follow the publication of statistics from Reita, a specialist adviser in real estate investment trusts, which the London Stock Exchange defines as a company that owns and manages property on behalf of shareholders.

The figures revealed that 95 per cent of experts have noticed an improvement in the property fund market over the past three months.

They also indicated that more than half of people believe the difference to be "significant".ADNFCR-1222-ID-19409599-ADNFCR
