During the pandemic, businesses have been looking for opportunities to recapitalize and improve balance sheets—and real estate holdings are the easiest pathway to achieving that goal. Stan Johnson Company senior director Shan Gastineau and associate director Jeff Tracy have seen a significant uptick in sale-leaseback demand and transaction activity from a wide variety of businesses with both small and large real estate portfolios.

GlobeSt.com hosted a conversation with Gastineau and Tracy to talk about the recent market activity and why the pandemic has created a perfect storm for sale-leaseback deals. They highlight that the structure is really a fit for any user. It is more important that the value of the real estate provides a financial benefit to the company. These deals are ultimately a win-win for both the seller/tenant and the buyer.

For more details about the benefits of a sale-leaseback and some insight into what activity will be like over the next 12 to 18 months, watch our exclusive interview with Gastineau and Tracy.
