It may actually be more cost effective to look at different types of commercial property and plan for a change of use, for example perhaps you would like to buy a restaurant, therefore you might find a shop for sale in a prime location, which would be cheaper to buy than a restaurant in the same area.
As long as the property is already designated as commercial property, you simply have to apply for a change in use. It is much more difficult to purchase a residential property and obtain a change of use to commercial.
