In addition to securitized real estate offerings, Cornerstone also serves clients desiring to purchase investment-grade real estate directly. NNN leased properties are typically among the more reliable real estate investments, producing both monthly income according to a long-term lease, and also having the potential for property value appreciation. Such properties have the tax benefits of real estate ownership and they are eligible for 1031 exchange. An investment in a NNN leased property can be an attractive option for a larger investor who desires to have more direct input in the oversight of the property, and who desires to own a property outright or with just one or two other investors.
