How it Works: the Ground Sale Leaseback™
When an organization decides to own its real estate (instead of leasing it), its primary motivation is usually control. The more an organization invests in their property, plant and equipment, the less comfortable they are with a landlord dictating what they can and can’t do in their facilities and for how long. Ownership offers control, but it can also tie up a substantial amount of cash. The more facilities are tailored to the specific needs of their users, the more illiquid the group’s investments in their real estate become.
Does your organization own its real estate?
If so, wouldn’t it be great if there was a way you could control your real estate like an owner without tying up so much cash? We have an easy 2-step solution that offers both CASH and CONTROL to owner-operators of large properties.
It’s called the “Ground Sale Leaseback™” and here’s how it works…
Sell us only the land beneath your facility… this is a “Ground Sale”.
We don’t need to know what you’ll do with the money; we just need to know where to send it.
At closing of the Ground Sale, simultaneously lease your facility’s land back from us for as long as you want… this is a “Leaseback”.
When we say “as long as you want”, we mean it… we can structure leaseback terms as long as 99 years and, in some cases, even longer.
So now your organization has cash from the Ground Sale and it still has full control of its facility from the Leaseback of the land.
Now all there is left to do is CELEBRATE. You are now a HERO. You found your organization a bunch of cash without fundraising, taking on additional debt, diluting equity or interrupting operations at the facility.
Now, with its new dry powder from the Ground Sale, your organization can do whatever it wants, from: save jobs to create jobs, upgrade equipment, expand facilities, expand into new markets, invest in securities or at a minimum, do nothing and improve its financial statements.
Now that you know how a “Ground Sale Leaseback™” works, you’re probably wondering if any of your group’s properties might qualify.
