In an earlier post I mentioned several types of businesses that make good sale/lease-back transactions.  Since then I've been asked why a business would want to take part in this type of transaction.  In a sale/lease-back a owner occupant of a building sells the property and then signs a lease wi...

It's been a little while since I added to my series on evaluating commercial real estate investments.  If you recall, we were analyzing a small retail property in downtown Reading, PA.  We looked at several aspects of the property's performance, from NOI through IRR, but one thing that we did not...

I realized that my blog post yesterday was titled NNN or Gross... What's The Best Type of Commercial Lease, but it never really said which type of lease was the best.  I explained the difference between the two types of leases and left it at that.  Well, as someone who hates false advertising, I ...
