Richard Weeks nailed it, both are full of problems and potential lawsuits. Only upside to commercial is when you have a big strip mall or something and can get tenants like Whole Foods or Costco you most likely have a tenant that pays on time and signed a 30-50 year lease. Long term tenants.

You have gotten good answers here. For the life of me I don’t know why anyone wants to any type of property management.

Transition in which direction? They are very different, no matter. It also depends on the state laws. Also, in commercial, a big difference is the depth of the pockets, and the legal lengths a tenant would go to over a multi-million dollar lease, as opposed to a few-hundred-a-month residential lease. I love to read the recent cases via Plain Vanilla Shell  .

I would not undertake EITHER without an experienced broker/mentor. It's where your license is most vulnerable.

There are similarities.  They both involved people and they both involve properties on planet Earth.  Otherwise, they are diametrically different.    It's a matter of learning one or the other... or both.

Similarity - we don't do either.

just instinctively, I would expect it to have some differences, but I doubt if it's Rocket Science to make that transition....

I am not a commercial agent. It is important for you to work with a broker who does commercial real estate before getting into management so you will know how it works.

Not in my humble opinion. There are nuances in each sector!
