if one owns rental property in Maine, how many units in one building does it take in order to qualify as commercial property?

Most folks (lenders, assessors, brokers, appraisers) follow the HUD rules that says 5 units makes commercial. Your assessor may have a different view because of what else may be in the building, or based on how they have classified it in the past. But, generally, the magic number is 5 and it doesn't really matter what state you are in, if my experience is any indication.

Just to clarify, Moonstone, retail, office, industrial flex and the like are always commercial, regardless of number of units. I read your question to mean apartments. Is that a good reading of your question?

yes. i'm licensed in NH. i have this friend that owns some rentals in Maine. remember my previous posts? i left the old realty & joined KW-thanks for the good advice.
i talked with the lady (on-boarding specialist) who was helping me about my friend in Maine who is not in good health so things may need to happen sooner than later...she said you can get licensed in Maine in a month if you are ambitious & asked me how i felt about that. i replied that the thought gave me chest pains. we agreed that it may be best to refer it out & i would get 25%.
on the other hand i wonder if i'm just 'phoning it in'. my boyfriend has offered to pay fees related to Maine licensure & thinks i should tackle this on my own. obviously i'm conflicted. what do ya think Longwalk?

Hi Moonstone--

Thanks for the update on your broker situation. I didn't want to derail your thread by asking.

Maine is a hard place to work for appraisers, so I can only imagine it is the same for brokers. Do you really want the headache of CE in Maine once you get licensed? Are you planning to do more work there that would make the time and expense worth it?

Realistically, can you get competent enough to serve clients in Maine?

Lots of questions, but I would think long and hard about what business I was in before I pulled the trigger on getting licensed there.

Sometimes, it is easier and more profitable to just refer work out.

For example here you can find office for sale in Berlin [url]http://tranio.com/germany/berlin/office-property/office-space[/url] based on the information on these property you can understand what is qualified as a commercial property and what is not qualified.

The question was about commercial property in Maine . . . . not to be confused with Spain !

And directing visitors to check out Berlin, Germany is bizarre; why, that doesn't even rhyme.

Westrom ---

You can post your link in your signature block or on your personal page. We don't need to be presented with it each time you post.

If you read the thread, the OP was asking how many apartments were needed to classify a property as commercial.

And, to clarify your thinking, a significant portion of commercial real estate is not leased or income-producing.
