Cell Phone Tower Lease Buyout picture of monopole cell towerThinking about cell tower lease buyouts and the future of cell towers and cell sites? Do you have questions about selling your cell tower lease rental stream? Talk to a Tower Genius cell tower lease buyout expert about the pros and cons of selling your annual wireless rental payments.

Are you considering a cell tower lease buyout offer that you have received in 2024? 

Is it a good lease buyout offer or a not-so-good lease buyout offer?

Or maybe is it a phenomenal purchase offer?

Are you wondering why you are getting so many unsolicited cell tower lease buyout offers from third parties and from your cell tower management company to sell your cell tower lease rental payments, when at the same time you are getting threatening cell tower lease optimization letters from vendors working for the same wireless carriers and tower companies to lower the rent and modify your lease terms, or they might "exercise their right" to terminate your lease or relocate the cell site or cell tower to another location?

Have you asked yourself, why do they want to buy my future cell tower lease rental stream if cell towers are possibly at risk of becoming less valuable due to the deployment of 5G technology and what about the impacts of 6G technology in the 2030's?

"Selling Your Cellular Telecommunication Lease Rental Stream in 2024"

By: Steve Kazella, Managing Partner at Tower Genius.      

Wireless landlords considering cell tower lease buyouts in 2024 will see a broad range of up-front cash payments or installment payment options offered, in exchange for a perpetual easement on their cell tower lease rental streams. The value of each wireless lease needs to be properly evaluated.

Lease buyout offers that you receive on your cell tower lease rental stream or rooftop cell site lease will vary and will depend on a number of factors:

  • Carrier lease monthly / annual rent values

  • Co-location potential for new additional wireless tenants

  • Existing cell tower lease terms such as Right of First Refusal (ROFR)

  • Owner - Landlord’s future goals with the property

  • Your current financial needs (if buyer suspects hardship they will lowball)

  • Geographic location – metro area cell sites  vs rural tower cell towers

  • Zoning requirements of the site (how hard is it to build new towers)

  • Buying power of institution making buyout offer 

Ask Tower Genius about maximizing your cell tower lease buyout offers.

All Cell Tower Lease Buyout Companies Are Not The Same

In some cases, the cell site lease buyouts you are being offered are so disturbingly low,  that they are an attempt to take advantage of the owner or landlord especially of the lease buyout company or tower investor senses a financial hardship. These cell tower buyout offers are generally accompanied  by a series of threatening letters (or letters that plant the seed of doubt) and telemarketing calls concerning the stability of a particular wireless tenant or the cellular industry as a whole due, to advances in 5G technology or industry consolidation. Depending on your geographic location and the actual type of site you have, this can be partially true or completely irrelevant.

For example, for years, Tower Genius told a particular cell site landlord in New York City to accept a lucrative lease buyout offer for their rooftop Sprint lease, but they decided to hold out looking for 7-figures, which we told them was completely unrealistic for that specific location. Unfortunately the opportunity to sell that lease passed them by. 

In other cases, professional hedge fund cellular tower lease portfolio managers will contact you directly. These are wireless capital investment companies who are seeking acquisition of cell phone tower leases to add to their portfolios. Your cellular lease is a commodity which can be purchased or sold like any other commodity, bundled and packaged on Wall Street. Many of these wireless financial services firms will offer you a better deal than those enticing cash offers made by the lower-end of the tower lease buying spectrum, that resort to using scare tactics. Currently some of the larger and more aggressive cell tower portfolio managers are offering outstanding deals for specific types of  cell tower lease buyouts they are targeting.

In many cases these lease buyout deals where the landlord receives a significant up-front cash payment for their cell tower lease  are beneficial to a Lessor (Owner or Landlord), especially if you really need money for a capital investment in your primary business, or need to solve an immediate cash flow issue.  We frequently have cell tower landlords ask us about the future viability of cell towers, trying to weigh the options of whether to sell the lease rent payments and get a large one-time lump sum cash payment, monetize their cell tower leases and roll the proceeds into a like-kind commercial property in the form of a 1031 Exchange for the tax deferment, or enjoy the cellular revenue for the next several decades.  Our advice: sleep on the cell tower buyout offer a few times.
