-- Houston, Texas, November 24, 2014 /PressReleasePing/ - In a move set to shake up the Net Lease Sector and US Commercial Real Estate Investment Industry, RealtyWealth.com today launches a first-of-its-kind Single Tenant Net Lease "STNL" investment platform. Targeting accredited US and global investors in South Africa, China and India, RealtyWealth.com gives investors the opportunity to invest in institutional quality, corporate backed STNL real estate assets across the US. This is the first global investment platform dedicated to the U.S STNL investment market in the US – estimated worth $1.8 trillion.
Private investor interest is growing rapidly and investor participation in Commercial Realty Investments has risen from 3 per cent in 2006 to 30 per cent of the market in 2014. There are 8.7 million accredited investors in the U.S alone and it is estimated that only 5 per cent are currently invested in this relatively 'untapped' STNL market.
Further, it is widely reported that international investors, and in particular the Chinese, are expected to spend billions of dollars on U.S real estate in the coming years. Across the country, Chinese buyers purchased $7.6 billion in foreign commercial real estate in 2013, a 125 percent increase from the year before. That number could reach $10 billion in 2014.
One asset class that provides the least risk and least management responsibility is the STNL real estate category making it highly attractive to international investors. Unlike other asset types, the STNL opportunity provides the investor with a 'low-risk' and 'hassle-free' investment strategy.
Traditionally the majority of STNL investors have been institutional with investments made through pension funds, insurance companies, public or private REITS. These were generally limited to high net-worth investors due to high-level of participation – you typically need to invest a minimum of $100,000 – $200,000. With the launch of RealtyWealth.com this is set to change as it offers direct access to the STNL investment sector, directly through their website.
"The NNN Investment is essentially a corporate bond-type investment in a real estate wrapper," said Bryan Smith, co-founder and chief executive of RealtyWealth.com. "Compare investing in Starbucks stock at 1.6% dividend with the market risk involved versus acquiring a corporate backed Starbucks lease and achieving returns of 6 to 7% unlevered?"
RealtyWealth.com is an international investment platform focused on the STNL market. It has strategic marketing relationships in place in key geographies including China, India and South Africa. Distribution partnerships are in place, or pending finalization, in Africa, Asia and South America. According to real estate figures, Global direct real estate investment volumes were $165 billion in the third quarter — a 4% increase over Q2 and 13% more than the third quarter of 2013.
"RealtyWealth.com operates as an aggregator of local and foreign investors typically seeking stable US-based Real Estate Investments," said Sam Vogel, co-founder and president of Strategic Business development. "These STNL products offer long-term, corporate-backed, passive income with an inflation and currency hedge to our investors."
STNL investments provide investors with the opportunity to own long-term corporate lease properties. These properties typically make up the high streets of towns and cities across America, and the corporate long-term leases are held by iconic brand such as McDonalds, Starbucks and Walgreens. The corporate tenants are responsible for all property maintenance, taxes and insurance. This makes it an attractive 'hands off' investment choice for international investors.
"STNL investments are already included in the investment portfolios of High Net Worth individuals across the US. These traditionally 'safe' investments are considered robust and current investors are reaping the rewards they offer. RealtyWealth.com will now open the market for direct investment for accredited and international investors. From as little as $5,000 a month, investors can invest in these appealing investment properties and enjoy the opportunity to build value over the long term," concluded Sam Vogel.
RealtyWealth.com is focused on making investing simple and more affordable to accredited and international investors and provides a turnkey investment approach to real estate investing. The full-service platform is fully integrated, with an extensive investor dashboard for making and managing investments, receiving returns and tax documents and allowing investors to review projects, fund investments and track them online.
RealtyWealth.com provides access to an 'asset class' which until now has been the best kept secret of institutional investors.
