Billboard Hard Money Loans
Real estate investors outside the retail side are often surprised to learn the incredible value of billboards, and the potential capital source behind them. Billboard hard money loans can be a quick and creative solution to temporary capital squeeze for real estate investors. Billboards are in high demand despite often appearing in retail properties for several reasons:
- The leases are very long, stable, and often have yearly escalations.
- The ‘tenant’ takes care of all the maintenance on the billboard sign, resulting in zero landlord responsibility.
- Large cities always restrict and remove billboards from circulation and therefore it is harder and harder to erect new ones. Existing billboards are ‘grandfathered in’ and therefore can be extremely valuable.
- Some billboard leases contain profit-sharing clauses for extra-rent potential.
How can you get a loan against your billboard income?
The concept of lending money against your billboard income is simple – someone give you loan secured by the income coming from the company that operates the sign. It is no different than advances against annuities, life insurance payouts, structured settlements, or any other reliable monthly payment used as a collateral.
Most billboard income is secured by a large media corporation, and the lease term can be 20 years long. This created a reliable source of income, very much like a NNN property. A standard mom and pop tenant leasing a retail store have a comparatively high default rate, they can sell/assign the business, and once they leave it can take owners months to fill out the vacancy. Because billboards are hard to build and it is even hard to get a new license – their numbers in large city metros are fixed. In other words, once one billboard is gone, it is likely never coming back.
Short supply and stable income make billboard a perfect collateral for an advance. If you own a single standing billboard, or a part of a retail center – you can get a loan against that income.
Selling Your Billboard
Another way to extract even more value out of your retail property is to ‘sell’ just the billboard. Plenty of real estate investors will purchase the rights to thee lease and the billboard income for a large sum upfront, which could be a solution for property owners with an immediate capital need. Unlike a straight sale of the entire property – when you are selling the billboard you still get to keep the land, improvements, and all existing leases in place. The only thing that changes – you sell the income from the billboard to the buyer.
Selling the income from the billboard is very similar to selling an annuity – if you have a capital requirement right away and need the cash (and other capital sources are maxed) – it may be the only way to extract cash from your property. Our experience can provide you with the best price for your billboard, if you decide it is the best move for your future.
