Retail properties house retailers and restaurants. Retail establishments can either be multi-tenanted or single-use buildings. Multi-tenanted properties usually have an anchor tenant that draws in clients and customers to the property.

Retail properties tend to be either strip centers, power centers, community retail centers, out parcels, or regional malls.


Industrial properties cater to businesses’ industrial needs. They are typically located out of populated urban areas and can have many tenants. Industrial buildings are constructed according to industrial purpose. They can either be heavy manufacturing, light assembly, flex, industrial, bulk warehouse, or research and development.

Urban office buildings include high-rise properties and skyscrapers. Suburban offices, on the other hand, tend to be smaller in size and stature and are often grouped together in office parks.

Office buildings are categorized or ranked in three tiers—Class A, Class B, and Class C.

Multifamily properties cover residential real estate that excludes single-family. This means that apartments, co-ops, condos, and townhouses all fall under multifamily real estate. Just as office buildings are classified by three tiers, so are multifamily buildings.

Multifamily apartment rental properties primarily include high-rise apartments, mid-rise apartments, and garden apartments.


Special purpose commercial properties are buildings that don’t fall into any of these categories. They are usually owned by commercial real estate investors. Amusement parks, self-storage, bowling alleys, and churches are examples of special-purpose properties.
