Why You Should Consider a Freehold Commercial Business for Sale

If you are looking for a commercial business for sale you may be wondering what that includes. Often buyers get confused about the difference between commercial property and a commercial business for sale, are they the same?

Commercial property typically is an empty space that can be used for purposes such as operating a business like a cafe, restaurant, industrial, manufacturing etc. The local council will have placed a code on the property for its permitted use, and it is outlined in the sale agreement. Commercial property can be offered as freehold or leasehold. 

A commercial business will have a business already established in the premises. Often you will see it advertised as a freehold commercial business as you are purchasing the actual premises and land title such as the shop, and also the business that currently operates from the premises such as Bills Supermarket. This means you have two assets; the actual property and the business. There is the option of a leasehold commercial business but essentially this is just a business for sale that has a commercial lease in place. 

The main differentiating feature is that you are buying a business as part of the sale. At Bsale, we are focused on businesses for sale and not just the commercial space. 

You will see freehold commercial business sales are more common in regional towns, though can be seen in cities as well. 

  • Motels
  • Supermarkets
  • Takeaway Shops 
  • Corner Stores
  • Petrol Stations


Buying a commercial business for sale has its advantages over just buying a business. 

  • No rent - When purchasing a business and the freehold commercial property attached, there will be no rent to pay every month. If you have a business loan to fund the purchase, then you will only have the loan amount to account for at the end of every month, and no worries about increases in rent, or rental agreements. 
  • An asset you can use if needed - You have the option of selling the business down the track whilst maintaining the commercial property and collecting rent.
  • No landlord - Easily make changes to the property as the business grows. 
  • Potential increase in property value - A commercial property has the possibility of increasing in value.
  • Improve ability to get loans - When applying for a business loan, if you have a commercial property attached to the business it can increase your chances of obtaining a loan.
