397 reasons why CRE prices are still too high

CREbeat notes that Prequin is tracking 397 funds with $$149.8 billion that are going after "distressed" CRE properties, loans, and bonds...

They also remind us of the $25 billion in REIT money waiting to do the same thing...

While CRE properties remain high, the issue always revolves around risk as is well known. In a weak economy investors tend to hold off on securing new property investments. I am with SecureNvest, Inc., and we are just releasing a new product onto the market which changes that scenario radically.

Our product provides security for single tenant NNN property owners against bankruptcy by their tenants. The product is NOT insurance, but rather a financial instrument that pays out the full protection with 30 days of bankruptcy filing, (which you select) should your tenant file bankruptcy.

The leverage this offers allows investors to secure better financing from their lenders, including better LTV ratios as well as better interest rates. This leaves capital available to invest more, with the feeling of security, just as investors have with their various insurance policies (i.e. fire, earthquake, flood, etc.) In other words, now there is a way to invest in NNN single tenant property with little risk. You can sleep at night.

Unlike insurance which comes with an annual premium, which you can only secure on a yearly base, as premiums always go up, protection can be secured for as much as 10 years up front. Additionally from our discussions with the large banking firms, the protection can be included in the financing for your property purchase.

This product covers only properties that are leased by publicly traded companies. We have seen many firms go belly up, including CompUSA, Circuit City, Kmart, etc. The properties occupied by these tenants left the property owners in a world of hurt, as it's difficult in these economic times to find new tenants. SecureNvest offers full protection for the amount you select with no loopholes. Go to to learn more.
