Updated to reflect post-pandemic changes like the work-from-home economy, this third edition of Gary D. Rappaport’s Investing in Retail Properties names methods for developing a commercial investment business with an eye toward sustainable, long-term financial growth.
Rappaport, who has an investment background in buying and growing shopping plazas, uses his stories of personal success to show how commercial real estate developments can be quality investments. Those looking to achieve the same success, his book says, will benefit from expertise in five areas, including construction, leasing analysis, and property management. The book also discusses crucial techniques, like finding the right investors, and it makes an argument for prioritizing investments in shopping centers that are anchored by grocery stores, whose locales make them more resistant to general economic changes.
