Serving Private Property Owners and Cell Tower Landlords
Steel in the Air has assisted over 2,500 property owners nationwide with cell site lease negotiations and asset valuation. Most of the time, private property owners are ill-equipped to deal with these issues (and so are their attorneys). It’s difficult enough to stay on top of which parent company owns what wireless provider, not to mention being able to decipher what their projected end game is twenty years into the future. That’s where we come in – we provide highly specialized and proprietary information that the tower companies and wireless carriers would just as much assume that you do not have. So if you’ve wanted to have your site assessed, or if you’ve simply wondered “Why would I want a cell tower on my property,” read on.
Our services for private property owners include:
Lease Valuation (typically for divorces or estates, or for tax purposes)
With Steel in the Air, you don’t only benefit from our team’s expertise, you have our loyalty. We know the telecommunications industry inside out. We understand who the major players are and what their motives are. We have the data and expertise it takes to give fair market values and asset valuations, and we know the sweet spot. We won’t push too hard (or too fast), which could result in your losing the deal entirely. In fact, we are regularly contacted by people who have previously used another consultant’s cell tower brokerage services and weren’t happy. We also know a fair bit about investments, and can help you calculate things like net present value now vs. when your cite reaches full capacity. Best of all, we will not sell you short. Unlike other cell tower lease consultants, we do not work for wireless carriers while at the same time servicing landowners. We provide our clients with reliable, unbiased guidance based on a decade’s worth of comparable data and industry expertise.
You are safe in our hands. With Steel in the Air, you will:
- Level the playing field – by understanding that, contrary to what you might have been led to believe, this cell tower lease negotiation is not-one-sided. You do have some bargaining power.
- Avoid risk by satisfactorily determining that you are making the best use of your assets – in the present and for the expected future.
- Make informed decisions regarding your property that are based on valid, actionable, and timely data. We know property law and how to use it to your benefit.
- Gain an advantage, maximize your profit and find peace of mind well into the future.
If you have associates who are also party to cell site leases, we advise you to take caution when comparing a potential new lease to theirs. You shouldn’t assume that they knew what they were doing, even if the amounts do look enticing.
Each cell site agreement should include a visual representation (blueprint or drawings) illustrating exactly where (and what) the carrier intends to install.
You may have received an offer to purchase your cell site lease (what is referred to as a “lease buyout”). Contrary to what you might be lead to believe by the company who has made you an offer, the risk that your lease will be terminated may not be a factor at all. In other words, buyout companies are in the business of profiting.
