Thank you for reaching out to us. I have taken the liberty of removing your last name and contact information from this form. Otherwise, you would be inundated by spam and calls.
We can certainly help - we specialize in determining the fair market value of cell tower leases. They are especially tricky to value at the expiration and with 4 carriers on the tower.
The fair market value equals one of two things:
1. If the tower can be moved to another parcel, the buyout should approximate the cost to relocate PLUS the present value of a lease on another property or the purchase price if the parcel can be purchased.
2. If the tower can't be moved due to zoning or other restrictions like the unavailability of suitable sites, the buyout can be higher because the tower company doesn't have other options. The lease buyout will typically be higher in these situations.
We will be reaching out to you directly to discuss how we can help. Thanks for posting.
