WHAT IS A SALE AND LEASEBACK?
A sale and leaseback is a type of real estate sale in which a practice sells its property for cash and simultaneously executes a long-term lease with the buyer.
WHY A SALE AND LEASEBACK?
This gives physician-owners an opportunity to cash out of their real estate investment while the market is at a peak, but allows them to continue operating long-term, uninterrupted, and with full control of the building.
HOW CAN A SALE AND LEASEBACK HELP ME TODAY?
- With a long-term lease in place, your facility is marketable as a cash-flowing real estate investment.
- Valuations for cash-flowing healthcare facilities leased to best-in-class providers have reached historic highs.
