Cell Tower Lease Buyout Values
Verizon Wireless has built more cell towers than any other cellular carrier. The leases are considered “investment grade” and they are priced as such. Lease buyouts have reached over 174 times monthly rent for Verizon tower leases. Want to sell your Verizon cell tower lease?
AT&T Wireless is also an “investment grade” tenant and the multiples paid for the leases are the same as Verizon. AT&T purchased Cricket in 2013 creating a lot of “overlap” in some areas of their network. Any site with both AT&T and Cricket on it will have to be carefully evaluated.

Sprint Nextel still has many redundant sites and Wireless Investment Group would need to determine if the Nextel site was upgraded before making an offer. Once we determine that it is an upgraded Sprint site, the offer we would make would be around 168 times monthly rent*. Want to sell your Sprint/Nextel cell tower lease?
T-Mobile’s value is similar to Sprint’s upgraded sites. T-Mobile finalized its acquisition of Metro PCS in 2013, creating an “overlap” in coverage in many areas of the US. Just like the ATT/Cricket situation, T-Mobile acquisitions have to be looked at more carefully to make sure there are no “overlap” issues with Metro. If there are no “overlap” issues, than the offer you would receive should be around 168 times monthly rent*. Want to sell your T-Mobile cell tower lease?
Cricket was bought by AT&T in 2103, which caused many “overlap” issues. If your Cricket site is in the vicinity of an AT&T site, there is a high likelihood that it will be decommissioned in the near future. The value of your Cricket lease could vary greatly, but I would not expect much more than 36 time to 60 times monthly rent*. Want to sell your Cricket cell tower lease?
Metro PCS was acquired in 2013 by T-Mobile. This greatly decreased the value of your Metro PCS lease, because of overlap issues with other T-Mobile sites. Metro PCS leases are currently valued somewhere between 36 times to 60 times monthly rent*. Want
