Net leased investments remove a lot of the complexity from individual property investing by focusing on properties which in many ways manage themselves. Still, administrative burdens and complexities exist and to the uninitiated it can be daunting.
Tenants in net leased properties are responsible for most of the onsite maintenance and upkeep of the property. However, there is still a need to collect the rent, pay some bills, keep a set of books, get the tax return prepared, make distributions and prepare for a re-sale when the current tenant’s lease expires, or sooner.
An asset manager can add significant value by dealing with these issues. The cost of an asset manager is relatively low based on the services provided. An asset manager will handle all of the day to day details associated with the property like collecting rent, paying bills, including the mortgage payment, providing monthly reports, arranging for tax return preparation, and making the required cash distributions. They can also provide guidance and insight as to current market conditions, transaction support and due diligence in the acquisition and disposition of the property itself, and sound advice on the positioning of the property throughout its holding period.
Professional asset managers can provide advice as to when the optimum time to sell is, and whether there are other net leased property opportunities that might provide a better return.
Net leased properties are one of the most passive real estate investments in the market. However, like all investments, proper management is needed to ensure a stable and substantial payoff.
