Rockwell Property Characteristics:

ownership structure
2 New construction in great locations
3 Excellent corporate tenants
4 Long-term, triple-net (NNN),
corporate-guaranteed leases
5 Debt-Free
Tenants-in-Common (TIC) Ownership

The tenants-in-common structure

allows you to purchase an undivided,
fractional interest in a property. This
gives you access to a much higher
quality real estate investment than
you might have on your own.

For instance, with $200,000 you could buy 10%

of a $2,000,000 property. You would receive
a warranty deed, a title insurance policy and
enjoy all of the same benefits as if you owned
the entire property; you just own a slice of
the pie rather than the whole thing. You also
receive 10% of the income, appreciation and
tax shelters that the property provides. A
co-ownership in a Rockwell property can be
purchased for as little as $50,000.

New construction in great locations

All Rockwell properties are brand new

commercial buildings with new leases
and construction warranties in place.

We perform extensive demographic research

and market analysis on each area where these
properties are located to make sure that the
business that is leasing the property is likely to
succeed in that location and that the real estate
has the potential to appreciate in value over
time. One of our principals also personally visits
each site to inspect the property and evaluate
the surrounding community.
Excellent corporate tenants

One of the most important aspects of

owning a Rockwell property is that we
only deal with very strong national or
international companies as tenants.

As such, we don’t work with any franchises or

small businesses. We conduct a thorough analysis
of each company’s business model, credit
worthiness, industry position, profitability and
staying power.

For instance, two companies that we love as

tenants are Fresenius Medical Care and Family
Dollar. Fresenius is a classical industry leader
as they are the world’s top provider of kidney
dialysis products and service. They operate over
2,500 dialysis clinics here in the U.S.A. They
have a wonderful business model as dialysis
is a vital, life sustaining service that is largely
unaffected by economic downturns. Family
Dollar is another example of a business that
does extremely well even in a down economy as
people tend to shop there even more regularly
during tough times. They are a very profitable,
well run company that operates over 6,500 retail
stores all over the country.
Long-term, Triple-net (NNN) Lease with Corporate Guarantee

The triple net-lease shifts the majority

of the property management duties and
expenses from the owners to the tenant.

The tenant is responsible for paying the

property taxes and insurance and doing most
of the maintenance and repairs of the building.
This creates a hassle-free, passive arrangement
for the owners. We also help the owners
contract with an independent, professional
manager to oversee the property and collect the
monthly lease payment from the tenant, which
is then distributed to the co-owners. Since
most of the responsibilities are the tenant’s,
the property management services are very
inexpensive; typically each co-owner only pays
about $25 per month.

With every Rockwell property, the lease is also

guaranteed by the corporate parent. This means
that the commitment to lease your property is
backed by the financial strength and resources
of the entire company, so even if a particular
location performs below expectations for a time,
you aren’t at risk of missing a monthly lease
payment. Another benefit is that all of the lease
commitments are long-term with incremental
increases in the lease rate over time. A typical
lease will have an initial period of ten to fifteen
years, with multiple renewal options that can
take it out many years beyond that. This affords
you tremendous peace of mind knowing that
you have a wonderful tenant who is committed
to leasing the property well into the future.

While most TIC properties are offered

with financing already in place,
all Rockwell properties are offered
completely debt-free.

This creates tremendous security and stability

for the owners. A property that’s owned free and
clear is never at risk of being lost through default
and foreclosure. Because there is no debt to
service, all of the income the property generates
goes directly to the owners.

A debt-free property that has a corporate-

guaranteed lease with a strong, credit tenant is
among the safest and most reliable real estate
investments you can find. In many ways it’s
similar to owning a corporate bond; however you
also receive the added benefit of regular cash
flow and all of the other advantages of owning
real estate.

Who? So who is the ideal candidate

for a Rockwell debt-free Why? When all is said and done you
can sit back and enjoy the
property? The answer is simple; anyone reliable payment you receive the first week of

and the dollar amount you want to purchase.

There are only three documents to sign,

1 a standard purchase contract,
2 a TIC agreement outlining the relationship
among the co-owners and how decisions
are made, and
3 a property management agreement.

Rockwell pays for all of your closing costs,

records a warranty deed to transfer ownership
to you and sends you a prorated rent check
based on the very day you sign. From that point
forward you simply receive a monthly payment
directly from the property manager in the form
of a mailed check or a direct deposit into your
bank account.

interest in the property so each has the right
to sell his portion at any point in time. The
tenancy-in-common agreement gives the other
co-owners the first right to buy if one of the
co-owners decides to sell. The resale of a TIC
interest in a debt-free property is made easier
because a new buyer does not have to qualify for
an existing loan. All of the co-owners can also
agree to sell the entire property whenever they
choose. A TIC ownership can be listed with a
real estate broker or sold by owner. Rockwell can
also serve as a resource for a past client seeking
to sell his fractional interest.
What is the worst case scenario?
The worst case scenario would be if the
tenant went out of business and there were an
interruption in the lease payments. However,
because there is no debt to service you would
not be in danger of losing the property and
thereby your original investment. In this
circumstance the co-owners could elect to have
the property manager find a buyer or a new
tenant to lease the property. By design, Rockwell
properties are smaller, freestanding buildings
which are typically much easier to lease than
a larger facility. It is important to point out
that Rockwell only works with strong corporate
tenants with excellent track records and proven
business models. To date, no Rockwell property
owner has ever missed a monthly payment.

Can I buy a Rockwell property with

funds from my 1031 exchange?
Yes. Many of our clients sell other investment
properties and save tens or hundreds of
thousands of dollars in capital gains tax
payments by reinvesting the proceeds from their
sale in a Rockwell TIC property. These clients
are always thrilled to transition into a passive,
cash flowing investment. Rockwell properties
are specifically structured to qualify for 1031
exchange treatment. A copy of our legal opinion
relating to 1031 exchange matters is available
upon request.

Can I buy a Rockwell property with my

IRA or other retirement account?
Yes. Many Americans are taking a more active
role in their retirement planning. Self-directed
IRAs and other similar programs allow you to
decide where to invest your money. A Rockwell
property is a tremendous option for your
retirement account as it is designed to provide
security and a very predictable, reliable return
on your investment.

Our primary goal is to ensure the total satisfaction of all of our customers.
Rockwell Debt-Free Properties are structured to provide our clients with a very
specific set of benefits and, while it is an excellent option for most, it may not be
the right solution for everyone. Please consider the following questions to help
us understand your personal objectives. We are committed to helping find the
investment that is best for you. If a Rockwell Debt-Free Property is not the best
solution for your situation, we will gladly refer you to someone that may have an
option better suited to meet your individual needs.
