If you are in the market to buy a business that includes Real Estate then a sale and leaseback analysis can be an invaluable tool to simultaneously acquire the business and sell off the real estate at roughly 1.5x to 2x the appraised value while entering into a long term business favorable lease and having full control of the real estate. We have worked with hundreds of businesses around he country that were able to acquire the business with zero to minimal equity and having the sale and leaseback model finance the acquisition. Please PM me with any questions and to obtain an analysis (at no cost).
