Buildings that consist of shops and offices with flats above are good examples of mixed usage properties.
They are an increasingly popular choice of investment because they generate high yields and also bring diversity to an investor’s portfolio. It works as a useful steppingstone to invest in more commercial properties.
Examples of mixed usage properties are:
- Residential flats above a restaurant, office or shops
- Guest houses with accommodation for owners
- Pubs with self-contained accommodation
- Buildings with self-contained flats and offices
