Y ou will experience tre- mendous enjoyment owning NNN proper- s inds of change in the economic cycle grow, investo s in- A

(having year-to-year leases and fixing roofs, plumbing and toilets), reading The retur s over long r periods. The nature of NNN ropert es, their leas terms and tenant profiles provide added security for investors looking to ride out the storm of challenging economic conditions. The real estate fundamentals of NNN properti s provide the first line of security. NNN properties typically have high- traffic, high visibility locations which appeal to a broad range of p ospective tenants. NNN properties often have stylized box buildings with regular site layouts and ignage rights. These features help occupying NNN Triple Net Property Book would be a waste of your time. There is a reason both va- nilla & chocolate ice cream are top sellers. Even though people consider vanilla to

be plain and perhaps bor- ing, they still enjoy it. As- suming this analogy is true, usinesses maintain viable operations through economic cycles and appe to a multi- tude of tenants or buyers on the lease turn or disposal of the asset. NNN properties offer a sec- ond line of security in their long leas durations and lease terms. NNN property leases range from 5 - 20 years, often with rent increases through- out. These timeframes span economic cycles providi g sta- ble or escalating i come over time. They provide attractive ret rns rela ive to government and co pora e s curiti s and comparing a single-tenant NNN property to vanilla ice cream would be reasonable. For example, when you take a bite of vanilla ice cream, you know it will taste good, even predictable. When you

own a NNN property, your monthly income stream will be quite good; it will also be 100% predictable. To complete the analogy, let’s associate chocolate ice cream with a multi-tenant prop- erty with short-term leases. Examples of multi-tenant property include apartment buildings, shopping centers, or office buildings. Income from a multi-tenant prop- erty will vary each year and it will take a signifi- cant amount of your time to manage and maintain the property. Again, some people avoid the volatility of equity arkets. The hird line of securi- ty comes from the nature of the tenan s occupying NNN properti s. Ten nts typic lly consist of publicly traded com- panies or st ong priv t ly held companies. The corpor te- back d nature of NNNprop rty leases reduces vacancy risk for investors. Should an occupying business fail, NNN pro erty lease terms obligate t e ten- t to continue rent payments through t the lease term. Only a corporate bankruptcy can void the lease, which,

prefer vanilla, others prefer chocolate. It’s nice to have options. Here’s why many investors enjoy owning single-tenant NNN property. NNN is a type of lease in which the tenant maintains and pays for all property maintenance, taxes and insurance. Ten- ants include Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, Chase Bank, Wells Fargo, Chipotle, Pane- ra, McDonald’s, Dollar Gen- eral, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, AutoZone and almost every other national retailer you see while driving through the most prime retail corridor near your home. Landlords are mostly individual real es- tate investors, just like you. Here’s the best part – These Fortune 500 tenants sign long-term leases that range from 10 to 25 years. The price to purchase a NNN prop- erty begins at approximately $1,000,000.
