A Commercial Condo Is One Option When Buying Investment Property

When someone mentions the word condo, people are more familiar with residential condominiums. However, there is another type of condominium for those who are interested in buying investment property. Commercial condos are built for non-residential uses such as offices, retail shops, hotel rooms, etc.

Like residential condos, owners of commercial condos can rent or sell individual units to interested buyers. Even though all the units are attached to each other, a different person or business owns a separate piece. There are multiple owners, similar to a residential complex. The question becomes what are the advantages for investors and business owners for choosing a commercial condo when buying investment property. The biggest advantages of commercial condos are flexibility and affordability.

Since each condo unit is a separate, transferable piece of property, the unit can be sold without seeking approval and permission from multiple parties. Commercial condos also provide an option for investors who cannot afford to buy an entire building or complex. Each commercial condo unit is only a part of a building or complex and therefore more affordable.

When buying investment property, you should look at combining a commercial condo with residential condo units for a mixed-use development. Some common examples of mixed-use developments include medical office parks or retail condos at street level and residential condominium units in the upper level. Combining the two types of condos into one development increases the pool of possible owners and tenants.

A commercial condo also provides business owners an alternative to renting or leasing space and gives them tax advantages. Some of the advantages to businesses who are owners of commercial condos instead of tenants of rented or leased space include deductions for property taxes and interest, building assessments, utilities, insurance, repairs and depreciation.

When buying investment property, commercial condos are a good option for both investors and business owners. It is important to look at any agreements with condominium associations to see how any regulations or fees can affect the value of your investment. This is especially important to investors who are renting their condominiums to tenants because they must be decided who will pay for any regular maintenance and assessment fees.

Commercial condos are a good starting point for investors and businesses that have a smaller budget, are interested in buying investment property and want to take advantage of ownership benefits. It is important to do your research and make sure buying commercial condos is the right fit for you.

Is Psychopathic Records Artist Icp A Gang Without The Gangster Rap

Gangster rap was ubiquitous in the mid 90s. Gangster rappers like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Notorious B.I.G., Tupac and more were most known for perpetuating rivalries with their gritty gangster raps. Saying Psychopathic Records group ICP is a gang is wrong on many levels, but lets start with the reason that they are not because ICP sounds nothing like any of these gangster rappers.

Fast forward 15 or so years. Where has the gangster rap gone? Its certainly not in the mainstream. Today, our billboard charts are loaded with R&B and other Pop genres. Very rarely has there been a chart topping mainstream rap song in recent memory to epitomize the true meaning of gangster rap.

However, that hasnt stopped culturally out-of-touch government agencies like the FBI to label other rappers as gangster rappers in gangs. Yes, believe it or not, the FBI sincerely believes that Psychopathic Records horror rap juggernaut Insane Clown Posse and their fan base are part of one not so elaborate gang.

Do you think Psychopathic Records artist ICP is a gang? If youre a Juggalo, obviously not. You know better. But if youre new to the topic, its ok to be a little unsure. Continue reading to see why the FBI is wrong in thinking that ICP is a gang.

First of all, if ICP is a gang than theyre the smallest gang there ever was, because the ICP “gang” consists of 2 people: Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. Who the FBI were trying to accuse of being part of a gang are ICPs fan base, the Juggalos, who also enjoy music by other Psychopathic Records artists.

However, that said, theres still no way that a network as large as the Juggalos could be a functioning gang. Not only do they not listen to gangster rap, but saying Juggalos are a gang would be like saying teenagers are a gang.

Psychopathic Records may spawn some interesting artists whose lyrical content is focused on morbid topics like murder and suicide, but they are never serious. Furthermore, these Psychopathic Records who jokingly rap about these topics never include any gangster rap ideology in their lyrics.

Additionally, if a Juggalo did commit murder after listening to a song performed by a Psychopathic Records artist, it would be impossible to prove that a powerful ICP “gang” provided any motivation, especially because the band themselves is clearly not a gang.

The funniest accusation in the FBIs report is that the ICP “gang” communicates via social media, and are especially suspicious because they are transient by nature. The FBI could have answered their own question here the fact that Juggalos are “transient” really just means that they are normal people who move about and are not confined to one particular geographic area.

Saying ICP is a gang with Juggalo members would be no different than claiming that Nirvana and its fans were one giant gang in the early 90s!
