There are hundreds of thousands of cell towers around the country. They are in high demand and will be installed even more as 5G continues to roll out. Without them, people would not have reception when they use their cellular phones. Increasingly, those with land that can rent to cell companies need to know what goes into determining cell tower lease rates.
“If you are negotiating a rate and have no idea what goes into it, you will not get what you should. It’s as easy as that,” explains David Espinosa, president of TowerLeases.com. “You either need to know the industry or work with someone who does, or you will be taken advantage of.”
Here are 5 things that go into determining cell tower lease rates:
- Demographics. The property’s location and demographics will help determine the lease price offered.
- Supply and demand.If there are numerous landowners willing to lease their land in one area, then rates may not be as high.
- Amount of space. The available space will be a factor in determining the rate because it will play a role in what type of tower can be placed on the land.
- Density of users. Those with open land in an area with a lot of demand for cellular service will have the upper hand in negotiating a higher rate.
- Physical property. Land elevation, among other factors, will play a role in determining lease rates because these factors go into building and installing the tower.
“Before signing a deal, get a second opinion,” added Espinosa. “Perhaps you still sign the offered deal, but you may be able to get a better lease. You will only know if you get advice from an industry expert.”
For over 12 years, Espinosa has helped countless people negotiate cell tower leases, as well as with buyouts and providing consultation.
