Now, onto today’s episode. In this conversation, I’ll talk to David Tilney, who’s an expert on the fascinating topic of master leasing and has been putting on seminars on the topic for years. David and I will take a deep dive into the concepts behind master leasing, some of the history of it and how he came to apply it to the industry the way he does, and how you can apply it to what you’re doing in the property management world. This conversation will answer a lot of the questions that you might be looking at when you talk to owners who are fearful of everything.
If you’re not familiar with the concept of master leasing, you’ll also learn the basics of what it is! In short, master leasing is when you lease a property from one entity and sub-lease it to another, and take your cut from the middle. It differs from property management in that you’re not working for the owner, and therefore don’t have a fiduciary responsibility to the owner.
David did his first master lease in 1984, when he leased a house for 35 years at a fixed rent and secured his lease with a deed of trust. 10 years later, he was given half the appreciation of the property to remove his lease from the property when it was sold. In 1996, he cancelled all of his agency relationships and leased the properties that he used to manage because he felt he had more control in that process.
In addition to all of this, you’ll also learn about how master leasing can be an entry into the world of property management, as well as some of its other benefits. David will talk about process for business development and finding owners who want to work with him, and why it’s so exciting (and sometimes fun) to be an entrepreneur.
