How to invest in office real estate

If you want to share in the benefits of office property investing, there are a couple of different options available to you as an investor:

office buildings

Direct

Real estate agents sell whole properties or individual suites, some of which can be cost prohibitive to individual investors.

Unlisted

Property fund managers offer the ability to buy a “share” in an asset in the form of an office property fund – this usually has a minimum investment amount.

Listed

Listed entities where you buy and sell securities/shares in a trust on the ASX (such as ASX:COF).

Buying a direct property as a sole investor could carry more risk due to the high cost of exposure to the individual property.

By investing via an unlisted property fund or in a listed REIT, you are placing your trust in the property fund manager and responsible entity. Property funds managers are regulated by ASIC and you should always make sure they have longevity and a strong track record, particularly in the specific market you are interested in investing.
