Huge Real Estate Equity at Risk?

Posted on 2018-05-10 by James Billings

Are you ok knowing that your $12,000,000 real estate holdings are clearly identified in the newspaper? It’s easy for anyone to google search your personal life. How does this make you feel secure? If not, immediately transfer title to an anonymous trust!

The transaction involved a ground lease that is rarely used in apartment development. But the owners, the Elisabeth Awes Separate Property Trust and the Williams Family Trust, wanted to retain the property because annual lease payments equate to a 5.25 percent annual return, said Kevin Nolen at Cushman & Wakefield, which handled the deal.

“The land value was probably $12 million to $14 million,” he said, but the typical return on such a property is typically no higher than 4.75 percent.
