Our Firm

Generation Income Properties was established to take the proven and scalable concept of investing in triple net leased investment properties and applying fundamental real estate underwriting as its core principle. Its leadership and culture has one of the industry’s most respectable reputations as being an expert in triple net leased investment properties as well as for its ethics and outlook into the future. GIP maintains an efficient approach to costs and expenses and, as the saying goes, separates the wheat from the chaff.

“Focus on the long-term fundamentals of each property, and plan as if you were investing for your children and your grandchildren.”

Strategy & Philosophy

Generation Income Properties purchases assets with future generations in mind; hence its name. GIP acquires the most conservative, credit-worthy, long term real estate assets with the understanding that the underlying real estate is ultimately irreplaceable. While the REIT is established to provide a stable yield for long periods of time, special attention is paid to the intrinsic present and future value of the real estate in order to prepare for reusing the assets for other tenants after lease expirations.
Generation Income Properties is committed to making disciplined investments that adhere to its specific underwriting parameters. By having a long-term and generational outlook on any one investment, the quality of the real estate is of paramount importance to the aggregate value of the REIT’s portfolio. Therefore, the following specifications are considered before Generation Income Properties will invest in any one asset.

Investment Criteria

Geography

Generation Income Properties only invests in the top 20 highest population density cities in the United States. Below are the 20 cities for your reference.

  • Atlanta

  • Seattle
  • Tampa
  • Washington, DC
Tenancy

Generation Income Properties is committed to having the highest credit rated companies as tenants within its portfolio. Therefore, the REIT’s focus is to primarily buy and hold properties that have investment grade credit tenants occupying the assets.

Lease Terms

DURATION: Generation Income Properties has the flexibility to purchase assets with primary lease terms of any duration. With the focus of the REIT being on the quality and density of the real estate, lease length is a primary underwriting tool, but will be secondary to intrinsic real estate values. However, the ultimate goal is to acquire and hold assets that have at least ten (10) years or more remaining within the initial term of the lease.

EXPENSES: Generation Income Properties was established to purchase prime location, triple net leased real estate investments. However, the REIT is able to purchase assets that are leased to tenants operating under triple net (NNN,) double net (NN) as well as other types of lease structures.
