Sale-leaseback of Medical Real Estate

A Sale-leaseback gives the owner/users of medical real estate the ability to “cash out” in a lucrative real estate market, unwind complicated real estate partnerships, diversify their assets and the opportunity to shelter additional income through 1031 tax exchanges.

The Sale Process

Our firm garners the highest possible sales price by leveraging the value of the medical businesses, their leases and quality real estate. National buyers, private investors, investment funds, family offices and REITS submit competing bids, leading to maximum valuations.

Unlocking longterm relationships to achieve the highest real estate sale price. Finding the best buyer for each property and the right landlord for each business. Providing expert analysis, gauging the current market, navigating the complexities of each deal and creating successful client outcomes. Moving with the markets - capitalizing on the relationships between capital markets, interest rates and real estate sale prices. Determining and advising on the best time to sell and leaseback medical practices, surgery centers and all types of medical facilities.
