Unlock the value in your real estate.
What is a Sale-Leaseback?
The ownership in the operating business does not change; the original owner sells the property and at the same time, signs a lease agreement with the new property owner. The proceeds of the property sale are then available for the business owner to use in their core business.
This approach allows you to monetize the value of your property and redeploy it where needed, while maintaining ownership of the operating business.
