Retail Tenant Credit Ratings for First Quarter 2020 From Moody’s and S&P

 In 1031, Absolute Net Dollar General for Sale, California, Commercial, Ohio, real estate

Investors looking for triple net or absolute net retail investment properties interested in a commercial loan know that the national credit retailers’ credit ratings with S&P and Moody’s are hugely important for getting a loan at decent rates and terms or even getting the loan at all.

Investment-grade credit is S&P BBB or above. For the best loan with the best terms by the best lenders including life companies. Occasionally, you can get a BBB- rated retailer done by the big lenders, including life companies if the fundamentals are really right. For non-rated local retailers, restaurants, etc., a local bank with whom you have an existing banking relationship is your best choice.  And better to be unrated than to have a B- or a C rating.

I created a credit rating chart about a decade ago and update every quarter so now time for the 1st quarter 2020 update.

For new readers, what I primarily do is 1031 uplegs (replacement properties) for an exchanger’s downleg (relinquished property). We look for single tenant, single parcel, national credit, absolute net, usually retail type properties.

I work with experienced owners who currently have multifamily or multitenant retail and have tired of the day to day management duties. Owners who are looking for replacement properties where there are few to zero-day to day management requirements.

If you have any questions or are planning on doing a 1031 exchange with a property you have for sale and need info on a retailer, call me, Scott Harris Realtor at 310-473-4789 or 614-905-6614.
