What is a net leased property?

A single tenant let leased property is typically a build-to-suit freestanding building that is leased and occupied by a lone regional or nationally recognized tenant. These properties carry NNN leases that are backed anywhere from credit tenants with corporate guarantees all the way down to small franchisees/operators. As you may know a NNN lease, is structured to be a turnkey investment property to the owner with all major real estate expenses paid for by the tenant. The risk levels for each NNN property is usually reflected in the cap rate. Typically, the tenant has committed to a long-term lease, usually longer than 10 years up to 25 years with multiple renewal options.

Common mistakes commercial appraisers make in valuing net leased properties

We have seen other commercial appraisers add vacancy and credit loss of over 10% on NNN properties with brand new 20-year corporately guaranteed leased. We have seen commercial appraisers compare cap rate comparables of NNN properties that have less than five years remaining on the primary lease term to NNN properties that have brand new 20-year corporate guaranteed leases . We have seen other commercial appraisers not analyze the particular franchisee. We have seen small franchisee operators being given the same cap rate conclusion of a credit tenant with a corporate guaranteed lease. We have commercial appraisers not analyze store sales. We have seen other commercial appraisers actually conclude expenses for a NNN investment. We have seen commercial appraisers appraise a net leased property in California and use rent and sale comparables along the East Coast. These are just a few of the many examples of why you need an experienced commercial real estate appraiser for this property type.
