NNN Properties - What Price Should I Offer?

When making an offer on triple net property you should first assess the asking price relative to the market.

If the NNN property is priced right, a good first offer is 90% + of ask price. This will still allow room for you to get a deal on the NNN property but also ensure the seller responds. Thomas Morgan, CCIM of 1031Navigator.com shares some offer info on a $6MM+ NNN 24 year CVS NNN property he is working on.

Can my attorney do my 1031 Exchange?

Beware of advice like this. https://twitter.com/WORLDBESTLAW/status/659204367224967168

The issue is not the tweet but the actual article which states:

An attorney is such a “qualified intermediary”. A 1031 lawyer will prepare your 1031 documents and will facilitate the entire tax free transaction. It is very important that a professional such as a Lawyer facilitate the transaction because firstly if any mistake is made on the transaction or the paperwork with the transaction that needs to be filed with the IRS you will lose your tax free status. Also, the IRS regulations state that the money received from the sale of your current property must not be “touched” by you as the owner. It must go directly to the “qualified intermediary” who will then provide the funds for purchase of the new property. The mechanism of a 1031 exchange is quite complex however by utilizing a Lawyer to facilitate the transaction is a very efficient and cost effective way of performing the 1031 tax free exchange.

Let's be clear.

Attorney's can act as 1031 qualified intermediary.

Just don't use your attorney.

Treasury covers this in Reg. 1.1031(k)-1(k)(2).

Patrick Harrigan, President/COO and a Certified Exchange Specialist at Gain 1031 Exchange Company, LLC covers this really well here:

The Role of the Qualified Intermediary in a 1031 Exchange: Who Can Audition?

This is what he says:

The Treasury Regulations state that someone who has acted as the taxpayer’s employee, attorney, accountant, investment banker, real estate agent or broker within two years prior to the date of the closing of the sale of the relinquished property is the agent of the taxpayer and is disqualified to act as the intermediary for that taxpayer. This means a seller of property cannot have their attorney, real estate agent, etc. hold their proceeds if they intend to complete a 1031 exchange. Also disqualified are all attorneys in the same firm as the seller’s attorney and any real estate agent in the same brokerage as the seller’s real estate agent. The regulations then proceed to state two exceptions to the disqualification of an agent.

Exception 1 The regulations except out services that are routine financial, title insurance, escrow or trust services performed by a financial institution or title insurance company. Thus, those businesses do not become an agent of the taxpayer based on their routine activities and are allowed to act as intermediaries.

Exception 2 The regulations also except out services performed by the agent “for the taxpayer with respect to exchanges of property intended to qualify for nonrecognition of gain or loss under Section 1031.”

The best bet is to hire an unrelated 1031 Intermediary company like Asset Preservation or Starker Services.

Any extra work to do this is sure to be less than that of an IRS challenge or a voided 1031 exchange.

Deal Roulette - NNN Dunkin Donut in PHX

What nearby deal is a good NNN real estate investment?

TMO plays a game of deal roulette and looks at a net leased NNN Dunkin Donuts property for sale with 9 years on a absolute triple net lease.

It is a nice NNN building in downtown Phoenix, an attractive piece of real estate. It features a great location on 16th St and Bethany Home Road NNN Dunkin Donut For Sale which is quite a busy intersection with high traffic volume and a number of other properties nearby.

However, it has pretty aggressive cap rate and high per square foot rate, but it looks like it could be a good deal.

The price is $2,375,000

Deal Roulette rating is A- to B+.

What to look for on differing Walgreens investments.

SOLD: net leased Tractor Supply

TMO is pleased to have represented a private investor in the purchase of a NNN leased Tractor Supply property in Texas.  The all cash transaction closed in under 30 days for $2,242,500 at a cap rate of 8%.

"Tractor Supply (TSCO) is a great reliable tenant with a solid business model which provides my client with peace of mind for years to come." says Thomas Morgan, CCIM.  "TSC's may be in smaller markets but that is where their customers are and they serve the rural farming towns perfectly.  Compared to a NNN Walgreens or fast food NNN investment, TSC's have a lot of residual value in the real estate as they are on large lots, usually 4-5 acres and have decent size buildings of around 20,000 sf built of block."

Marcus Millichap represented the Seller.
