Why Invest in the Net Lease Market?

Investors choose to invest in net lease properties for several reasons. Net lease assets offer a reliable source of fixed income with little to no management hassles.  These investments tend to be long term and have investment grade tenants that reduce risk and the often include rent increases which benefit the investor.  Further, with certain properties, as with other commercial real estate, the property itself may become a generational investment that overtime, due to the location, significantly increases in value on top of the income flow.
