The Sale/Leaseback, defined.

A closer look at this unique transaction.

Sale/leaseback transactions are increasing in popularity, and with good reason. They enable you to improve your balance sheet, free up needed capital, maintain use of the property, and much more.

How do they work?

During a sale/leaseback transaction, a property owner sells an asset, and the purchaser immediately leases that same asset back to the original owner.

What are the benefits of a sale/leaseback?

The advantages of a sale/leaseback transaction take several forms:


By freeing up dormant equity, you'll have capital needed to pay down debt and fund potentially higher-yielding investments and initiatives. You'll also enjoy important tax benefits, including deductible rent payments.


You'll maintain continuous use of the property you sell. In addition, your leaseback can be structured to provide you with complete control over the property, as well.


A sale/leaseback transaction can lighten your balance sheet, improve your credit status, and even increase a public company's stock value.
