Cell Tower Lease – So what do you do now?
You have been contacted by a cell phone carrier or tower company who wants to construct a cell tower on your property but you do not know what to do next. One immediate question you may have is, “What is the fair market value for installing such a facility on my property?” Vertical Consultants can not only answer this question for you but guide you through the entire process from start to finish.
Another question we get from landowners in your same situation is, “What are some factors for consideration when determining the value of a cell tower lease?” Unfortunately, there is not one universal answer.
But here are a few common factors that we use to help determine the value of your cell tower lease:
1) Whether the site is within an urban, suburban, or rural area
2) The varying size of each cell tower
3) The different zoning classifications and
4) The proximity of the cell tower site in relation to cities and roadways.
These are just a few of the underlying factors that we research to help determine the value of a proposed lease. We understand that every property is unique and every cell tower location has a distinct fair market value. Our staff has the experience to interpret all of these factors in order to maximize the true value of your property.
How do we provide you counsel to help determine your property’s market value? We review comparable lease data and make inquiries in the area to determine what the average lease rates are for similar sites. We also examine what your potential tenant’s coverage objective is for the site and see what if any alternative options that party may have in the vicinity to satisfy those criteria.
