“Some of those Amazon-proof businesses are where people want to be today.”


Miguel is specialized in the net lease asset class. He’s drawn to this asset class because of its lower management responsibilities and long-term stability. 

Miguel explains some hurdles new investors should understand about the net lease investment space.

  • Understand the lease and the tenant.
  • Choose tenants with a strong credit profile and high FICO score.
  • Be prepared for a potential vacancy if you’re investing in a single-tenant property.

“The state matters. The city matters. It’s something that you have to consistently consider because you’re gonna see different cap rates in different places.”


Miguel is a debt expert. He shares his best advice on putting together the best debt stack for a property.

  • Location matters. Don’t solely base your decision on the tenant.
  • Always run your deals through a financing professional, especially in today’s volatile lending market.
  • Build a strong profile and have a well-organized PFS.

“The bank is in the business of doing loans, not declining loans. They need to do loans, so be transparent with them.”


Toward the end of the episode, Miguel talks about how to navigate the lending process. The key is to be transparent with the lenders. Hiding any issues can ruin your long-term relationship with them.

There are still a lot of opportunities in today’s market. View high interest rates or potential vacancies as opportunities to find value and negotiate favorable terms. 

Miguel thinks that the market may be near its bottom. He anticipates market stabilization and potential improvement as interest rates decrease.
