Why would someone consider a sale leaseback?

A Sale Leaseback is a strategy to structure your own lease and sell your real estate to a 3rd party. You enter into a long-term lease in exchange for the sale of your real estate.

  • Free up capital to expand or grow your practice - Most banks do not consider leasing part of the debt-to-income ratio and allow more financing capital if you lease vs. own real estate.
  • Sell to a 3rd party when a buyer of your practice is either not able or not willing to purchase your real estate.
  • Fund retirement accounts prior to selling your practice.
  • Transfer proceeds into other investment vehicles that have higher rate of return
  • Transfer your equity from managed into a non-managed assets like an UPREIT, fund, Index Universal Life, or other preferred return investment.
  • Strategically make more on your real estate than you would if you sold the real estate to a buyer of your practice.
  • Take advantage of the timing in a market for above typical market values.

Freeing up equity can be used to finance new locations, over fund retirement packages, or be structured to defer taxes by selling to a REIT that has an UPREIT option, etc.
