According to Mike Lin, “We found that the market for absolute triple net leased investments with a corporate lease and over 10 years of lease term remaining was very strong. In addition to the economics, buyers recognized the vital importance of in-person child care which was further emphasized by the pandemic and the need for such services regardless of changes in technology.”

The seller BORG Holdings will continue to own a portfolio of these schools, but their objective was diversification. According to Umansky, “Helping a client that I have worked with for over 25 years accomplish the goal of diversifying their portfolio into a mixture of single tenant and multi-family properties was very satisfying.”
