5 Tips for Your Next Ground Lease Investment

bankgroundlease.jpg

Wells FargoGround lease investment properties are some of the most unique types of NNN opportunities. While a regular "fee simple" triple net investment consists of both a building and the land on which it sits, a ground lease investment (which is also, technically fee simple) consists of just the ground. Instead of getting rent for the building, you get rent for the use of your ground.

Here are some tips for how to buy and profit from a ground lease investment:

  1. Look for good tenants. Frequently, a ground lease investment will have a very strong tenant. McDonalds locations are frequently available as ground leases and many bank branches can also be purchased as ground leases.
  2. Plan on appreciation. One of the drawbacks to buying a ground lease investment property is that you usually won't be able to depreciate it. The IRS doesn't let you depreciate land since it doesn't lose value over time through deterioration like a building would. The upshot of this is that you're not buying the part of real estate that loses value -- you're getting the good part. While the building on your land might be obsolete in 20 years, the land itself shouldn't be.
  3. Pay a little bit more. A ground lease investment will usually a carry a lower cap rate than other triple net properties. First, you're usually buying a property with a good tenant, which in and of itself carries a lower cap rate. Second, income from land is usually valued at a higher multiple than income that comes from a mixture of land and building.
  4. Leverage capital that's been 1031 exchanged a few times. When you've done a few 1031 exchanges, you end up with so much old basis that it gets part to effectively depreciate a new investment. Since you generally can't depreciate a ground lease investment anyways, using your oldest capital to buy it helps to free up money with more basis attached to it for acquiring depreciable assets.
  5. If it looks too good to be true, it is. Sometimes, you'll see a ground lease asset that seems like a screaming deal -- instead of being a 6.5 cap in an 8 cap marketing, it'll be a 10 cap. If you find one of these, proceed with caution. Sometimes, a broker will list a leasehold interest as a ground lease. When you buy a leasehold interest, you aren't buying dirt, though. You're buying the building and its right to use the land -- which eventually expires. While a leasehold interest can be a good choice, it's very different from a true ground lease investment and is less expensive for a reason.

Understanding Zero Cash Flow NNN Deals

CVSZeroCashFlow1.jpg

While many investors purchase NNN properties for their steady cash flow, that's not the only way to buy one. Some real estate owners use their NNN investments as ways to minimize their tax exposure and to maximize the benefits of leverage. Zero cash flow deals might not provide cash flow in the present, but they offer significant returns in the long-term. Most zero cash flow NNN investments have two pieces. First, you purchase a high quality NNN investment with a long-term lease and a tenant with a high credit rating. Drug stores like Walgreens and CVS are popular choices. Next, you obtain special zero cash flow financing. This NNN financing has an amortization period that is fixed to the term of the lease and a flat rate. Typically, you put between 10 and 20 percent down and, when the lease's initial term ends, you have a paid-off building.Zero Cash Flow Deal

The Short and Middle Term Horizon

While you don't cash flow from rents with a zero cash flow NNN deal, you usually make money on it for most of the time you own it. The depreciation that it throws off more than covers your principal payments, leaving you with a net loss on your taxes that you can use to offset other gains.

In the middle term of the NNN investment, the principal payments gradually grow. Once they are more than your depreciation, you may end up being subject to phantom income, which is taxable. This is the one key drawback to NNN zero cash flow deals. However, the phantom income can be offset by a Section 467 loan.

The Long-Term Horizon

At the end of the lease, your loan ends and you own your NNN building free and clear. With any luck, the tenant exercises its option and you will own a cashflow asset with no debt. In a worst-case scenario, the NNN tenant moves out. After 20 or more years of appreciation, it's reasonable to assume that the NNN building would be worth as much vacant as it was occupied way-back-when.

Zero Cash Flow and 1031

One of the advantages of zero cash flow NNN investments is that they allow you to put relatively small amounts of money down. This makes them a perfect place to park extra capital from a 1031 exchange. If you have money left over after buying your primary investment, buying a zero cash flow NNN can save you from paying boot. ZCF deals also allow an investor to more closely match debt and equity requirements from a 1031 Exchange.

The Pros and Cons of Triple Net Properties

Triple Net LeaseIn some ways, triple net properties are as much fixed-income investments as they are real estate vehicles. Offering little to no management responsibility and long-term fixed incomes with the potential for gradual increases, they act like bonds. However, underlying their financial structures, they are still real estate and carry the same eventual risks and challenges. Here are some of the pros and cons of triple net lease properties.:

Pro: Stable Income Con: Limited Upside Triple net leases are usually structured with a flat rent or with fixed increases. When you buy a $2,000,000 property at a 7.5 percent cap, you know that you can count on $150,000 per year for the life of the lease. Many triple-net properties also have rent increases of 1 to 3 percent per year built-in. They provide some growth, but don't necessarily keep up with inflation. However, this is no different from buying a corporate, Treasury or municipal bond with a fixed rate of return.

Pro: Long-Term 100% Occupancy Con: Risk of 100% Vacancy Most triple net properties come on the market with a lease of at least 10 years, with some having initial terms as long as 25 years. This gives you a long time during which you don't have to worry about partial or full vacancy. The drawback is that when the lease does expire, it's an all-or-nothing proposition. The same occurs in the event of a tenant default, although careful due diligence before purchase can reduce the risk of this occurring.

triple-net-lease-property-las-vegasPro: Attractive Cap Rates Con: High Price Relative to Underlying Value Single tenant properties typically trade at attractive cap rates that are hundreds of basis points above comparable non-real estate investments. They're also frequently priced lower than more traditional investment real estate alternatives on a cap rate basis. A large portion of their value comes from their income stream, though, meaning that they could lose value when vacant or as their remaining lease term decreases.

Pro: No Management Con: CapEx at Rollover True triple net properties are structured so that the owner has no responsibilities whatsoever during the lease period, while others transfer some capital expenditures to the owner. In either case, the ownership experience is very different from traditional real estate. However, when the lease rolls over, owners have to get involved in the re-leasing process and in any necessary capital expenditures to prepare for a new tenant.

Why are drug dealers the best tenants?

walgreensNNN1.jpg

Owning commercial investment property is a great pleasure especially when you have good solid tenants.

Marijuana pays the rent.

In Denver and California commercial retail property owners have found that "pot dispensaries" have filled vacant spaces in the down economy.

"Looking at California, the pioneer state of medical marijuana, shows how great the demand really is for medical marijuana. One study reported that Los Angeles county alone has over 800 marijuana dispensaries."

But the "high" does not last forever.

Considering pot is still illegal, it may be time to find another tenant.

What about a drug dealer that has $72 billion in revenue and a S&P rating of A?

This is not your back alley drug dealer. This drug dealer in on busiest corners. Has well lit parking lots. Incredible signage. Is open 24 hours an has 7,830 stores worldwide.

This drug dealer is Walgreens.

As a commercial property investor looking for long term passive income, you have to consider a Walgreens.  Walgreens typically signs 75 year leases.  Walgreens has the best locations. Walgreens leases are true triple net meaning the landlord has NO responsibilities. Absolutely none.  The owner sits back and deposits the monthly rent.

Triple Net Walgreens range from $4M to $12M and easily produce a 6%+ annual yield for an all cash purchase. Non-recourse financing is easy to obtain especially at 60% or less LTV at sub 5% interest rates which can increase the overall annual yield to 8% or better.

Here are some triple net Walgreens currently for sale around the US.  Contact TMO for more information on any of them or to set up a free no-obligation real estate investment consultation.

How to Select the Best Triple Net Broker

NNN-lease-property.jpg

Given that a net-leased investment typically costs millions of dollars, finding a good triple net broker is particularly important. Working with a good triple net broker will give you better access to inventory, better financing, and a better investment result. Here are a few things to look for in your quest for a top-line triple net broker. Fundamental Knowledge Many of the triple net broker firms in the market lack a solid understanding of the fundamentals of an NNN investment. Look for a triple net broker who knows the difference between a double net, a triple net, and a "true" triple net lease. Your triple net broker should also understand the credit rating system, as this will help them, and you, measure the risk of a given tenant.

Access to Inventory A strong NNN broker will have a large and diverse inventory consisting of a mixture of their own listings as well as properties offered by other triple net broker companies and off-market deals. This will let you choose from a number of different properties to find the right mix of lease terms, lease length, and tenant quality.

Access to Financing A good triple net broker knows that the lender can make or break the deal. As such, you should look for a triple net broker who either has an in-house commercial mortgage broker or a strong relationship with an outside broker. Your triple net broker should also understand the many different financing options available, including bank financing, life insurance financing, conduit debt and the "CTL" credit tenant lease programs that provide long-term fixed rate debt for NNN assets.

Client-Focused Business Your triple net broker should take some time to get to know you and your goals. They should then show you appropriate property. If, for instance, you express a desire to have long-term stable income and your triple net broker shows you properties with five or fewer years remaining on the lease, you may want to select someone else. Watch for a NNN broker who does not attempt to saddle you with more debt than you want. Although some debt carries a number of benefits, it also carries risk, and a good triple net broker will help you strike the right balance.

Experience Your triple net broker should have a few deals under his or her belt. Although some of the most active triple net broker teams in the company focus on seller representation, there are a large number of good buyer representatives who have amassed a large resume of experience. Work with a triple net broker like that, and if they have a well-respected designation, like CCIM, that is an additional plus.
