Here’s One Way We Add Value for Property Owners

It comes down to our working relationships with national operators and real estate investors.

Often, when a school owner sells his business and related real estate, as much as two-thirds of the total sale value comes from the real estate itself. 

We match the school business with a large, established national school operator who becomes the lessee (tenant) of the real estate. We then (simultaneously) sell the real estate to institutional investors who place a premium value on the existence of the large school operator tenant (premium rent amount, strong credit tenant, low default risk). The value to the investor of having a premium-rent paying tenant with excellent credit is transferred to our client in real dollars — often hundreds of thousands above the value of the property without such a strong tenant in place! 


Martin Brill, CEO, The Compass Schools

“Our ownership group’s strategy in utilizing the sale-leaseback was to reduce personal debt from the business while increasing our liquidity – plus, the real estate will not be an obstacle to buyers if we decide to exit the business.”Martin Brill, CEO, The Compass Schools

Client Testimonial 1-4Robert & Sherry Johnson
"Bailey Routzong's expertise in the industry helped renegotiate the lease and market my school property. As a result, I was able to obtain full value and extract all the equity out of the real estate."

Client Testimonial 1-2Jim & Marlane Spencer
"Several years ago, when Bailey Routzong sold our school businesses (4 Montessori preschools and elementary / middle school), we decided to keep 3 of the 4 buildings and lease to our business buyer. However, after a couple years of being the landlord, we realized that our long-term financial plans were full of uncertainty.
If I kept the leases a few more years, my property values would start to decline as the leases had fewer years of rent remaining, my tenant was not a strong credit rated company, and I really did not want to face selling these properties when the buildings and surrounding neighborhoods had aged further."
