How do I determine a fair lease?

by Stephen
(Santa Ana, NM)

How do I determine whether a tower operator's offer is in line with the market? How much credit do I give him to allow us to place government services on it?

Thanks in advance.

Determining value
by: Tower Genius

Towers are rarely built to handle a single carrier. To judge the value, we would need to see where the site is located and the terms of the agreement they are putting before you.

Like salesmen, the representatives who work in this industry to negotiate these type of deal usually appear to to nice, charming and personable. Remember, they are compensated and are sometimes given bonuses to limit giving you LESS on these sites. They are not working for you and they are not your friend.

Give us a call , we only work for landlords and owners, to maximize your revenues.
