There is always some risk involved with commercial real estate investments, just like any other investment. The Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) recent hike in interest rates may have both positive and negative implications on your commercial real estate investment. However, depending on your individual investing objectives, level of risk tolerance, and total portfolio, you may or may not need to be concerned about the recent interest rate increase.
The recent increase in interest rates may not have a substantial effect on your investment in commercial real estate if you have a well-diversified portfolio and a long-term investment horizon. Over the long run, well-located and well-maintained commercial buildings can continue to generate consistent rental income and increase in value. In the near term, higher interest rates may result in higher borrowing costs and a potential decrease in demand for commercial properties.
It’s important to regularly review your investments and make sure that they align with your investment goals. Consider contacting a financial adviser or a commercial real estate expert if you are worried about how the most recent interest rate hike will affect your investment, these professionals can provide you with tailored advice based on your specific circumstances.
