We're stocked with versatile commercial brokers, with their own specialty edge and impressive depth of field in CRE. We tap into a well-studied knowledge base, seasoned workflow, and extensive professional network when we advocate for you. We attend to all the details, ensure a smooth and painless transaction, and impress you with a rewarding client experience that motivates and uplifts you as much as it delivers you quantifiable results.
Are you ready to sell?  The sale of an asset is an important decision which requires careful analysis and expertise. (Are you sure?) We have a process that helps sellers move property for profits.

WHY NET LEASE? 
A net lease requires the tenant to pay, in addition to rent, some or all of the property expenses that normally would be paid by the property owner, including real estate taxes, insurance, maintenance costs and utilities. Typically, net lease assets tend to be single tenant, free standing buildings such as banks and fast food restaurants.
HOW WE HELP
Our professionals know everything there is to know about STNL assets across all sectors – retail, medical, office and industrial. They are long-time experts in the field of NNN sales, listings and properties. They keep on top of trends, and work hard to build national networks and rewarding relationships. We take time to understand your risk tolerance and investment strategies, with the end goal of finding and developing the best long-term allocation and plan for your needs. And, armed with your specific criteria, they can find the perfect income-producing property when you are ready to buy, and will pinpoint the right buyer when it comes to time execute an exit strategy.
WHAT'S A 1031?
One of the benefits of investing in real estate are tax breaks. The 1031 tax-deferred exchange is one of the most utilized mechanisms to maximize the opportunity in real estate investments. It allows investors to defer taxes and build wealth over time, by deferring the tax you’d pay in a conventional sale and reinvesting it into a new property of equal or greater value. 1031 exchanges must adhere to strict IRS guidelines and can be quite complicated, requiring assembly of a qualified team of professionals to include intermediaries, attorneys and accountants.
TIMELINE
1. 45 days. Replacement properties must be identified within 45 days from the date of sale of your initial property. The identification must be in writing, signed by you, and delivered to a person involved in the exchange. Replacement properties must be clearly described, including legal description, and street address or distinguishable name. 2. 180 days. A replacement property must be received and the exchange completed no later than 180 days after the sale of the initial property or the due date (with extensions) of the income tax return for the tax year in which the relinquished property was sold, whichever is earlier.
 
OUR APPROACH TO 1031s
We work with clients to establish solid exchange teams. Exchanges happen quickly, and we can assist you in finding opportunities early to ease the anxiety that can occur once the exchange clock starts ticking.  From the onset, our team will help you set the right strategies, identify the right investments and execute a swift, easy transaction with the new property(ies)
WHAT'S A SALE-LEASEBACK?
A sale-leaseback (SLB) occurs when a company sells the land and building used in its current business operations. Simultaneously, the company leases it back under a long-term lease with the buyer.
 
As interests rates begin to climb, we expect to see tenants wanting to take advantage of locking into long-term leases in efforts to control operating expenses for years to come.
MAIN ADVANTAGES TO SLBs
 1. Generate cash. Quickly liquidate your real estate and get 100% of market value versus a typical 70% loan to value (LTV) loan which may require refinancing as soon as 3-5 years. 2. Reduce taxes. Deduct 100% of your rent expense versus only the interest portion of your debt. 3. Redeploy capital. Use the net proceeds from your transaction in order to reinvest in a corporate purpose that produces higher yields than your real estate.
IS YOUR BUSINESS/ASSET RIGHT FOR ONE?
We help you determine the right strategy that will allow you to maximize the benefits of selling your real estate and entering into an advantageous lease. We will thoroughly explore the right balance of financial returns and operational flexibility, diligently set up the appropriate lease structure and outline the tax implications resulting from the SLB, all to maximize your capital.
 
Many investors are looking for a safe place to put their money with the wild fluctuations in the financial market. Stable, predictable investment vehicles are increasingly hard to find, but smart investors do have choices. One of the better choices is to invest in properties, which many investors also call a corporate bond combined with real estate investments that still make sense today.

It allows investors to defer taxes and build wealth over time, by deferring the tax you’d pay in a conventional sale and reinvesting it into a new property of equal or greater value.

OVERVIEW

OF MANAGEMENT SERVICES

The Jay Company manages retail shopping centers in NC and SC.
 
As property owners ourselves, we manage from the owner's perspective. We recognize that each of our owners has different goals, and we align all of our efforts with those goals. 

DEVELOPMENT

OVERVIEW
The Jay Company focuses on the development and ownership of single-tenant retail properties, multi-tenant retail centers, professional / medical office buildings, and industrial facilities. The majority of our development activity involves repeat, multiple assignments involving national retail chain brands. We go where our clients need us: we often operate as the “preferred developer” in multiple territories across the Southeast. 
Building a new retail location takes time and capital that may be better spent investing in your business. With our build-to-suit (BTS) projects, not only do we deliver a building that is tailored to your needs, but we also carry the financial burden of development along with the risks associated with constructing and operating a building. This provides you the opportunity to focus your time, energy and money on what’s most important to your business.
 
 
The Jay Company offers a variety of services in property, facility and asset management. Our team has decades of expertise in this sector. In addition to family companies, we have also collectively worked with some of the most recognizable, top-tier commercial brands nationwide. No matter the size or status, we treat every single client and their operations with the hearts of servants - which requires the utmost care, dedication and respect.
