You should realize that just because you have been inundated with calls to sell your cell tower lease does not mean that your lease that is more valuable than other cell tower sites in your area. But, if you are a cell tower landlord, you know that more and more finance companies are popping up with one thing in mind, and that is to do whatever it takes to buy your cell tower lease. These companies often mask themselves as being “telecom companies” to the point of naming their companies with names that would lead you believe that they are a part of the telecom industry. This is the first step in the process to earn your trust, and, eventually, obtain your cell tower lease.
While it may be advantageous in certain circumstances to sell your cell tower lease, most third party companies will try to sell a property owner on the benefits of selling your cell tower lease, and, the most common, being to try to sell you that “technology is rapidly changing”, and, as a result “your cell tower lease is in jeopardy”. The irony to this is not only are these companies not a part of the telecom industry, and usually the person on the other end of the phone has little or no experience in the telecom industry.
Ultimately, the value of your cell tower lease is unique, and if you rely upon a third party cell tower lease buyout company to determine that value, you are making a big mistake that could not only cost you today, but for decades into the future.
