What is Commercial Property?

Property used for business purposes is called commercial property. Buildings used to house businesses are usually considered commercial property, but businesses may own residential properties for rental or investment purposes, which will then turn the property into commercial property. Shopping malls, supermarkets, offices, industrial and manufacturing facilities are some examples of commercial property.

What is Residential Property?

Residential properties contain a living structure like a house, townhome, or apartment. A residential property can be multi-family unit with various apartments that are owned or rented by different individuals

What is the Difference Between Commercial and Residential Real Estate?

The primary difference between commercial and residential real estate in South Carolina is the purpose for which it is used. Residential property is used for personal, family or household purposes such as single-family homes, while commercial property is for investment or income producing purposes or houses a business enterprise.

Can Commercial Property be Used as Residential Property?
