Hello Anne S.
We do Sale /Leaseback and its a great way to free up cash for your business. The key word here is "Equity". An appraisal of your facility will have to show that there is enough available equity in the property The acquiring investor will also want to assure that there is adequate cash-flow in your company to enable you to rent back the property at market rates. The aquirer acts like a bank.

The properties are usually occupied by a single tenant (usually the owner of the building). Search for single tenant buildings for sale.
