Cell Tower Lease Securities

A common end point of cell site lease investment is the issuance of cell tower lease securities. Smart investors can take advantage of roughly 370,000 cell tower sites that may be amenable to purchase and resale. It is perfectly acceptable to simply purchase the lease for its current owner and start collecting lease payments which will last for as long as twenty-five years. Another basic approach is to buy a distressed property which includes a cell site lease, rehab the property, and sell or use the various parts for business. Where cell tower lease securities come into the picture is that there are investors who purchase collections of cell tower leases and then package the collection of leases into a portfolio of securities, stocks. Investors purchase these stocks which have a par value and a trading value. They receive payments tied to the sum of lease payments on properties in the portfolio. For the average investor interested in profiting from cell tower leases having an end stage buyer in place makes the whole job easier and more profitable.


Cell phone companies set up a grid of relay points to maintain coverage throughout their services areas. These are line of sight operations so they are placed on high towers, the tops of buildings, and even mountain tops. Because of the potential huge expense of purchasing land for all of these relay points, phone companies lease well over ninety percent of the land needed. Private land owners provide the space in return for what is commonly a twenty-five year lease. Many owners are happy with the arrangement and go about their day to day business. They receive a decent return on their lease and will not be willing to part with their lease or property. On the other hand there are owners of failing businesses, people who find the lease to be a distraction, and people who for a number of reasons will be happy to part with their lease and even their property.
