Cell Tower Lease Buyouts

What's The Shocking Truth About Cell Tower Buyouts They NEVER Tell Landlords?

Welcome to our cell tower lease buyouts blog. What's the shocking truth about cash lease buyout offers they NEVER tell landlords? Selling your lease revenue stream can provide landlords who have cellular tenants with significant cash payouts. At the end of the day, everyone has their own reason why they may be looking to sell their cell site leases. The net present value of your cell tower lease will not equal what you could make long-term on the site, but selling your lease is truly the only way to hedge your risk. However, let the seller beware, you are now swimming in shark infested waters.

You are probably getting multiple calls and multiple offers from third party financial firms that purchase wireless leases and from tower management companies in the vertical real estate industry. The #1 question that we get almost every day from cell site landlords is, "How do I know that I'm getting a good deal on a cell site buyout offer?"

You're probably trying to differentiate between the real bona fide offers and whether or not you should consider them, or are they merely shallow attempts to get you to talk to one of their sales representatives?

If your tower rent is undervalued, what's the fair market rental rate you should be getting, or should you wait until your lease is nearing expiration to renegotiate the lease or speak with them about their offer now?

What about trying to hedge your bets against cell towers possibly becoming obsolete in the future, which is a typical scare tactic used by the cell site lease buyout companies? How will things like nanotechnology, the economy or technological advances in wireless technology and future industry consolidation impact your lease?

If there are no risks o the tower becoming obsolete, why an I getting so many offers?  Or should you hold onto your lease and reject their offers? It can be overwhelming and confusing trying to make heads or tails out of these offers.

WARNING: Do Not Sell Your Cell Tower Lease Rental Stream Until You Talk To Tower Genius. 

Over the years we have had several disturbing and shocking conversations with wireless landlords who have sold a cell tower lease or cell site revenue stream without the proper guidance.  Many of the so-called wireless industry experts in our industry have questionable business ethics, or major conflicts of interest. This holds true especially for the some of the so-called independent cell tower consulting experts. We evaluate and will purchase your cell tower lease or rooftop cell site lease if it meets our strict criteria. If it does not we can still recommend  a buyer if it makes sense to sell.
