Ground or Master Lease

Lease your as-is property to Flexible for 1 to 99 years. We handle most of the expenses and you get a consistent monthly check.

Consistent cash flow without the vacancy, turnover costs, expenses or hassles

  • Steady income

    100% occupied property with completely passive income.

  • Eliminate landlord headaches

    One tenant, one rent check, and zero work.

  • Continued ownership

    Benefit from appreciation, depreciation, and equity.

What's Possible?

Your goals and circumstances are unique, and so are our offers. Here are some examples of what’s possible with a Ground or Master Lease:

Choose your upfront cash, monthly cash flow, and potential for equity growth as you pay down debt and the property appreciates. We can build in flexibility to adapt to your changing needs and circumstances.

Maximize your earnings with a “lease-to-purchase.” We can pay a higher rent and provide more cash up front if you give us a right to purchase at a future date.

Lock in a lease for 1-99 years to design a stress-free lifestyle, without having to figure out what to do with sale proceeds. This can be a great estate planning tool since you can defer taxes from a sale, and maybe even get a step-up in basis.

Remember: with any kind of lease structure, including our Ground or Master Lease, you are still the owner. This means you can refinance, giving you tax-free cash with a long-term fixed interest rate. Since it's a rental property, you get to deduct the interest which reduces your taxable income.

Ground or Master Lease FAQ

  • Some owners face a big tax bill from capital gains or depreciation recapture. Others have low property taxes, allowing for better cash flow if the property is rented versus selling and reinvesting the sale proceeds.

  • The rate may be lower than a traditional lease, but you eliminate nearly all ownership expenses, including vacancy, leasing commissions, turnover costs, most insurance, property management, and more.

  • If we default, you can evict us just like you would with a standard lease. We typically make property improvements, which keeps us invested in the arrangement—and leaves your property in better condition than before the lease.

  • We improve the property and rent it out at a rate that exceeds our total costs, or, in some cases, sell our interest to another tenant. We only consider options that align with giving owners what they want, and we never charge any fees.

Every situation is unique. So is your offer.
