Acquisition focus & criteria

AEI is focused upon acquiring free-standing, single tenant, net leased commercial properties that are occupied by national, corporate tenants of investment-grade credit quality. The average net worth of AEI tenants exceeds $2 Billion.

AEI and its related investment entities are debt-free, all-cash buyers of net lease commercial income properties. Our experienced staff, and in-house legal counsel, can quickly evaluate net leased property purchase opportunities.

AEI has immediate cash for net lease property purchases and forward commitments. All properties purchased by AEI are in or near prominent retail or medical economic areas.

If you are a preferred developer of build-to-suit projects, and prefer a permanent “take out” buyer, call AEI. Tell us about your goals and we can explore an acquisition package that meets your needs.
