How To Use A
Cell Tower Lease Calculator:
Step 1: If it's not powered by
Tower Genius, discard in trash. 

A cell tower lease calculator is no substitute for talking to over one thousand cell tower landlords every year since 2009, reviewing thousands of tower locations combined with 50+ years of cell tower development, site acquisition, zoning, lease coaching and consulting experience that Tower genius Partners Kevin Donohue and Steve Kazella bring to the table. We know that many people are searching for an online calculator to determine the value of their cell tower location for leasing antenna space to a cell tower developer or tower company, or what "range" to charge for leasing your rooftop space when a wireless carrier like DISH Network, Verizon Wireless, AT&T or T-Mobile wants to install a macrocell or a 5G cell site on your building. 

Anyone who claims they have a calculator to determine the rental value of your location for a cell tower is selling you snake oil. The valuation of specific locations is a precise science and has to be looked at on a site by site basis. While some may say there is a "range" for cell tower lease values, and while it is correct that a majority of rural cell towers rent for between $500 and $1,000 per month across the country, there is no substitute for having your location's lease rate valuation performed by an industry professional. There are always exceptions due to zoning, topography and many other factors. And don't expect the cell tower agents who are contacting you to provide the information that you seek.

Step 2: After you throw out the other guy's calculator, schedule a 30-minute discovery call with Tower Genius.

Don't leave it to chance when you are trying to calculate the precise value of your property's cell tower rental rate. The annual payments that you receive are only one component of a very lopsided lease agreement that the cell tower acquisition  consultant will want you to sign. We typically suggest 2 to 3 dozen modifications to most contracts, depending on how poorly they favor you.

And don't look to your attorney for answers. Your attorney while likely is very knowledgeable about other matters, won't be able to tell you what the site is worth regardless if it is a new cell tower proposal from Verizon, DISH, T-Mobile, Sprint or AT&T or if you are extending your lease with Crown Castle, American Tower, Vertical Bridge or SBA Communications. 

  • Is it a new carrier proposal on a rooftop?
  • Do we calculate rooftop cell site rent based on number of antennas or on a square foot basis or neither?
  • Are the adding additional equipment such as RRH or RRUs?
  • Are they relocating antenna equipment and can you get a rent increase?
  • Is it a 5G small cell or macro site?
  • Is the tower being proposed by a tower company that is reasonable or by a tower company that is known for cutthroat business tactics?
  • Is the existing tower lease on your property that is being extended a single carrier site or multi-carrier site? 
  • What is the rent increase for adding a generator to the cell tower if they need additional ground space?
  • Are you losing any tenants due to mergers or consolidation?
  • What is the value or the lease buyout or perpetual easement offer you received? 
  • Should you accept the rental guarantee offer to modify lease terms and reduce your rental payments on a site under threat of site termination or relocation, and how significant is the risk of the cell tower lease being terminated at your location  if you don't accept the carrier's terms?


There is no cell tower lease calculator on earth that can answer these questions, but Tower Genius can. We'd like to be your own personal cell tower rent calculator.

We look forward to assisting you!
