Want a Fortune 500 tenant with no management headaches?
Invest in a commercial property. Own a share or fractional Interest managed by a sponsor often with a Fortune 500 tenant and long term lease in place. Properties are usually multi-family, retail centers, office buildings. These investments provide a commercial investment immediately, reduced involvement in management, a steady return for an investment of as little as $25,000 on up. Typically referred to as tenant in common, these investments are now more regularly held in a Delaware Statutory Trust that issues shares in the trust. The IRS has confirmed these shares qualify as "like kind" 1031 exchange qualifying property.
The sponsor typically finds, manages and offers shares to investors who need to qualify under SEC rules as accredited investors. The properties are typically in retail centers, drug stores, commercial-type offices and medical complexes.
They offer a diverse range of investments.
Bottom Line: A good way to go if you want long term stable income from a lease with a Fortune 500 company, but cannot afford to purchase the entire building.
