Real estate has been rapidly rising as one of the top gifts for all holidays and special occasions. This is in part thanks to the increased awareness of the power of property as a gift, as well as how inexpensive real estate has become to acquire and finance. Single unit residential real estate may be the most obvious choice of gift. However, these are personal and the thought can turn negative quickly. In contrast, commercial real estate offers similar advantages as single unit residents, but without the mess. Ranging from offices, retail, multi-family and industrial properties, these investment gifts can continue to grow and generate income through the years. Furthermore, another advantage of commercial real estate investments today is that new partnership and investment structures can allow a portion of a property be given, complete with turnkey management and often at a reasonable cost.
