Webinar: The State of the NNN Market as the Industry Emerges from COVID-19

by Sarah Daniels



On June 4, InterFace Net Lease and France Media hosted the first industry-wide webinar to discuss net lease/sale-leaseback market conditions related to the impact of coronavirus: “The State of the NNN Market as the Industry Emerges from COVID-19.”

In this panel discussion, net lease experts explain the short- and long-term impacts of COVID-19 on the world of triple net lease, as well as the challenges and opportunities investors and developers may see as the country reopens after months of shutdown.

What can we expect as from a bank liquidity point of view? Per Karl Francetic of Realty Investor Capital: “[When the crisis first happened], there were a bunch of tenants that weren’t sure how if and how they were going to be paying their rent. They all got PPP loans, and now everybody has paid their rent. July is going to be the first month where they’re not going to have that PPP funding. It’s going to be very telling what happens. Are tenants going to be paying their rent and are things going to be back on track without PPP, or is the government going to go and do another stimulus, which then can extend that kind of uncertainty in terms of how long it’s going to take to rebound from this?”

Listen to panelists discuss the following topics:

  • How has COVID-19 changed the development landscape in terms of what should be built moving forward and how it should be designed?
  • When will the capital markets come back to life for both investment & development transactions?
  • How is COVID-19 impacting valuations, both short and long term?
  • Is the NNN market more likely to snap back than the traditional office, industrial and retail investment markets?
  • Given the financial distress of many corporations, could sale-leaseback activity increase in the next 12 to 18 months?
