Is the Lease really a NNN Lease? - Triple Net Properties Q&A

Today we look at if the Lease is really triple net?  Is it absolute net, triple net or double net?

In NNN investing, the lease is one of the most important things. The point of investing in NNN properties is to have a "hands off" investment.

When buying NNN properties make sure to read the lease to see if it is really true NNN or not.

Many triple net brokers and NNN sellers will advertise the lease as "net leased" or "ease of management" or "minimal landlord responsibilities" . Often times the lease will have more landlord responsibilities that advertised.

In this Video and Audio Q&A Thomas Morgan, CCIM of 1031navigator.com talks about absolute net leases, NNN leases, and NN leases.

Beware of opening escrow without having read the lease to see if it is triple net or not. This will save you time and money on your 1031 exchange NNN property purchase.

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+.

Current 1031 NNN Buy Need for VIP Client


Just in.... 1031 NNN Property Want/Need.... This VIP client is the son-in-law of a long time Exclusive client. We have sold his father-in-law almost $30M worth of NNN properties in several states over the years. (Find out about the VIP and Exclusive Buyer programs here)

“Hey Thomas, I have 600k to 800k laying around that I need to get out of the bank and into an income property. Can finance if needed up to, let’s say, $1.5M. It is a partial 1031 exchange so would like to do something sooner than later. I like what you found my father-in-law for his 1031 exchanges and other investments. The triple net properties really appeal to me. Would like to get as high as cap rate as possible, can go anywhere in US. OK with some risk as I am still young and not afraid to get after it if needed. However, would not mind sitting back and just collecting a monthly check! Thanks, AG”
