Distributions are expected to be paid monthly based on the financial performance of the property. Distributions are not guaranteed.

2. What are the expected returns?

Bluchip properties have an expected annualized return of 3-6% including monthly distributions and potential tax benefits.

3. What is the expected holding period for a Bluchip property? 

Bluchip properties are designed for a long-term buy and hold due to the length of the lease terms associated with the property's tenants. We anticipate a hold period of 10+ years for the majority of Bluchip properties.

4. What are the risks of investing in a Bluchip property?

All investments involve some degree of risk. Across the financial spectrum, corporate tenant real estate is considered a relatively low-risk investment. We offer conservative returns and potential tax benefits which are ideal for long-term passive investors. Historical performance is not an indicator of future performance. Property income during the lifespan of the lease is backed by the credit of the corporate tenant. In rare cases, when a tenant may default on their lease, rent payments may cease.

Commercial real estate investment mixes art with science, so we complement our AI tools with experience-based IQ. The team behind Bluchip has a multi-billion dollar track record with decades of experience selling properties across all 50 states. Properties are selected based on the following factors: brand stability, tenant credit/reputation, lease terms, market, demographic trends, foot traffic data, etc.

2. What is a Net or Triple Net lease?

The term “net lease” refers to a type of lease where the tenant pays rent “net” of most, if not all, property expenses. The most common net lease is a “triple-net lease” where the tenant pays rent to the landlord and maintains direct responsibility for the property expenses, namely (1) property taxes; (2) insurance; and (3) property maintenance.

3. What happens if a brand/tenant vacates?

While it is rare for a tenant to vacate the premises and default on the lease, it does occur. The tenant remains responsible for paying rent during the initial lease term and the guarantor on the lease is on the hook.

4. How does Bluchip manage their properties?

Bluchip partners with experienced Property Management companies to maintain day-to-day operational control of the asset. There is no management responsibility for the investor.
