Know the Nearby Towers

Before you get too excited about the prospect of making money with a cell tower, find out how many other towers are in the area. You might not have the opportunity to diversify your income this way if there are already many nearby.

Know How Rent Is Calculated

The lease payments for cell towers are often set up as recurring monthly rental payments to the property owner, giving the wireless carrier or cell tower company the right to occupy and utilize their land or structure. While each cell tower site has a unique value, the average monthly starting rent for a cell tower lease ranges from $500 to $3,000. However, depending on the location of the cell tower and other circumstances, the rent may occasionally be significantly higher.

The Longer the Lease Term, the Higher the Lease Payment

Cell tower leases are often long-term agreements binding the property owner and their assets for at least 50 years. Since the time a real estate owner grants a cell tower firm is seen as a commodity that the real estate owner is dealing with the company, the longer the lease period, the more likely it is that the lease payment will increase.

Negotiate With the Cell Tower Company 

Consider inflation and other factors that can alter the value of the lease over time. Real estate owners must negotiate annual rent hikes or escalations as part of the lease agreement.
