    Hi all,

    If you have hardly no knowledge about commercial property, what would be an easy / safe investment just starting out? a retail shop?

    Cheers, Elives

    Anything not covered by restrictive legislation like the retail leases act is a good place to start.

    You might consider a shop with an office/ residence in a strong shopping strip eg Mosman, Burwood, Eastwood etc to spread risk and exposure.

    He said investment, so presumably means purchase

    Retail Tenancies Act is almost as restrictive as its Residential cousin so I'd avoid it unless you're using a property manager. Just like with your resi investments, you need to have a think about what is in demand in your chosen area to suit your target audience.

    That's why I added "question marks", I could then ask, "have you thought of a lease, with an option to purchase".
