How to Find the best Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate For Sale

walgreens-2-1031Finding a good selection of Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale is not as easy as you might hope. Because there is no reliable central repository of commercial listings, the Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale in the market are typically spread across a number of different resources, only some of which are freely available to the public.

Internet Listings of Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for Sale

There are a few sites which present Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale as well as other commercial real estate listings. The two best known, Loopnet and Costar Exchange, are in the process of merging. Both allow just about anyone to post listings of Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale, as well as other property types. While Costar lets anyone search its database, Loopnet only gives full access to paying subscribers. The key problem with these sites is that many of the best Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale never make it on to them.

Principal Listings of Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for Sale

Many principals, whether they are owners or developers, list their own Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale on their websites. CrestNetLease and Kimco Realty are two such ownership groups that do this, and Bencor Development is an example of a developer that posts its Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale right online. Although direct principal to principal marketing can yield you access to inventory, it is a great real of work to visit each of these sites. In addition, because you do not have an expert guiding you, you may not know which of the Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale that you see are good deals and which are not.

Hire A Professional Broker to Bring You Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for Sale

The easiest way to find Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale is also the best way. Instead of spending your time to scour the Internet to find just a small subset of the Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale out there, hire a broker and let him do the work for you. Your broker should have not only a strong knowledge of all of the places to look for Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale, but should also have insider access to listings that you may not be able to see. In addition, he should be able to guide you to not only good Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale, but to the best Walgreens 1031 NNN Real Estate for sale for you and your specific needs. In addition, because most sellers will pay your broker’s commission, the service and guidance that he brings you should not even cost you anything.

Not All Walgreens NNN Investments Are Created Equal


On the surface, a Walgreens investment may look like all the other Walgreens. Au contraire mon frere!

Yes, the tenant credit is the same and the square footage is similar. However, there are many variables when comparing different Walgreens investments.

Everyday, we help our Walgreens 1031 clients evaluate and compare different NNN investment properties. Our clients are able to compare apples to apples due to our analysis and insights about which Walgreens NNN property most fits their criteria and investment goals.

Here is a quick list we did to help a Walgreens 1031 client do a side by side comparison of three Walgreens we made offers on. Note the additional data points in the list besides price, cap rate, rent amount etc.

Is the store open 24 hours? Does it have a drive thru? What about beer and liquor? How big is the lot? What are the reported store sales? What does the landlord have to take care of? (not all Walgreens are triple net!) How fast is the population growing? Is the area poor, wealthy or middle class?

Walgreens NNN Comparison

Which deal would you choose? Yes, cap rate plays a part in relation to lease term and price but what is the better investment considering the other factors?

We help our clients answer these questions.

On many deals we take it several steps further and drill down the data even more. Other data points we help clients consider when buying a Walgreens 1031 NNN property:

  • What are market rents compared to the contract rent? What can the building be leased for now and in the future?
  • What is the quality of construction? Brick? Block? Upgraded features?
  • What is the competitive environment? Where is the closest CVS or Rite Aid? What about another Walgreens?
  • What is the age demographic? Is the area full of young people who are healthy? Or does the area have an aging population that needs prescriptions filled?
  • What is the consumer spending potential? Is there underserved demand in the marketplace? Is it over supplied?

We answer all this and more, for you.

Not all Walgreens investments are created equal and neither are the people who sell them.

Make sure you have a Walgreens NNN investment advisor on your side.

Understanding Zero Cash Flow NNN Deals


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.

Pride of Ownership with Walgreens Real Estate


Here is a great video I found on You Tube showing Walgreens new prototype store in NC.  Walgreens, of course, always has the best locations and corners in their respective markets.  Their buildings have also been some of the nicer buildings on the strip but this new store format takes it several steps further. Owning a net leased Walgreens property like this is not only a great long term passive investment but also has pride of ownership.

I like the new look. What do you think?

Why are drug dealers the best tenants?


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.
