Hi Rosa,
A bank such as Chase with a long-term lease (10 years + option) is always a good tenant to have so long as they don't have an exit clause in the lease. Bank leases usually have small rent bumps, i.e. small upside, so you just have to weigh your goals, such as: how long are you planning to hold the property, is there development potential that you might miss out on by being locked into the lease, etc.
There are some very good deals in commercial real estate in Washington State right now and prices are generally more competitive and CAP rates are higher than in California. Also, there is no state income tax in Washington, so if you are in the market for income property and would be willing to consider the Seattle area give me a call.

Single tenant properties always carry the risk of the loss of the tenant. As we have seen recently no matter how big the company is it can fail. The key to single tenant purchases is to do your due dilligence.
I am in Southern California (Glendora) and specialize in triple-net single tenant investments. To give you a full answer to your question would take hours of typing (which I am not very good at). I would be happy to speak with you to answer your questions and maybe raise some you should consider when purchasing a single tenant property.
Keep in mind Chase just took over Washington Mutual which may mean they will be closing some sites. You don't want to purchase something only to have it go dark soon.
I would like to speak with you. My number is 626 485-5163.

Depends on many factors including Cap rate, Credit of Tenant, Amount of TIs invested (so hard to walk away), Price/SF, Land Size, and growth of the area. Also you have to compare with other opportunities that may be a better fit for your investment criteria. If you need to discuss email:

I just moved from Rancho Cucamonga, what a coincidence. I believe that is on the border of Rancho and Ontario. Ontario Mill is down the street. BofA is on Archibald and Foothill. Wal-mart, target, best buy, pretty much all the major anchor retails are in the nearby area. How's the access and visible?
