Acquisitions Background Realty Income focuses on acquiring freestanding, single-client properties under long-term, net lease agreements. For retail properties, we target clients with a service, non-discretionary, and/or low price point component to their business. For non-retail properties, we target primarily industrial and distribution properties leased to Fortune 1000, investment-grade rated companies.

Acquisitions Background Our acquisition strategy is to act as a source of capital to regional and national commercial clients by acquiring and leasing back their real estate locations. In addition, we frequently acquire large portfolios of properties net leased to multiple clients in a variety of industries. We have an internal team dedicated to sourcing such opportunities, often using our relationships with various clients, owners/developers, and advisors to uncover and secure transactions. We also undertake thorough research and analysis to identify what we consider to be appropriate industries, clients, and property locations for investment. This research expertise is instrumental to uncovering net lease opportunities in markets where our investment adds value.
