Core commercial real estate investments are the least risky offering. They are often fully leased to quality tenets, have stabilized returns and require little to no major renovations. These properties are often in highly desirable locations in major markets and have long term leases in place with high credit tenants. These buildings are well-kept and require little to no improvements on behalf of the new owner. With stable and predictable cash flows, core holdings are often the central investments of a long-term portfolio. Because they are the least risky type of CRE offering, they tend to have the lowest annualized return.
