A property or building can be owner-occupied or rented, i.e. an investment property. In the present market (1993) it may of course be vacant, resulting from being surplus to the owner’s requirements or a poor investment! From the beginning it should be noted that a large proportion of property is owner-occupied, but most of the texts and theories are applied to an investment market. The commercial property industry is a relatively young one in terms of the realisation that profit can be earned by producing and renting space.
