Real Estate Investor

What is a Real Estate Investor?

A Real Estate Investor is a person or entity that purchases a property with the intent of earning income. Most income for a real estate investor is generated through rent or resale. In the commercial real estate world, this means that a tenant is paying the real estate investor “landlord” rent each month. At Calkain we specialize in brokering the buying and selling of net lease commercial real estate. This means a low risk investment that will generate long-term and stable income.

Benefits of Investing in Net Lease Properties

Net lease properties are stable and usually long-term investments for real estate investors. This is because of the lease structure with credit-worthy tenants. Most net lease properties are passive investments. This means, the landlord/owner does not need to be hands-on. The amount of landlord responsibilities depends on the way the lease is structures, there are 3 types of Net leases.

Triple Net (NNN): No landlord responsibilities and  and the tenant maintains the structure while also paying rent, taxes and insurance. This is the least risky option for investors as most credit-worthy tenants sign NNN leases

Double Net (NN): These leases normally have a clause that the landlord is required to maintain the maintenance of the property. Sometimes you will see leases say landlord is responsible for roof and structure. Any repairs needed, the landlord/owner is required to take care of them directly.

Single Net (N): These are very rare cases. In these leases the landlord transfers a minimal amount of risk to the tenant, who pays the property taxes.

On top of the stable lease terms, net leases also give real estate investors peace of mind as most tenants are credit worthy and come with corporate guanatees. This means there is no doubt that the rent will be paid each month.
