Selling a Cell Tower Lease

by Dan

One company told me they typically pay 9 years income for a 20 year lease. This is a new 20 year lease with an additional 20 years in options. They are not willing to consider the last 20 years in their offer. Is this normal? Is 9 years for the first 20 years income typical?

Thank you!

Lease buyout fair market value
by: Tower Genius

Good question. Yes, 9 years of revenue is about average for a buyout. Of course they don't want to pay you more, that will burn a hole in their wallet.
