You inform Sally that you have read and drafted all of the documents related to either the purchase or lease of the property, you suggest that you have a discussion analyzing the available options and issues that might impede the operation or make the deal costs prohibitive. Sally agrees, “Hey, I am a bit perplexed. The purchase agreement appears to contain terms unfavorable to us. We should organize all of the issues we might dispute and develop a negotiation strategy to argue favorable conditions and options. These deals have a way of being great investments for the owners of the property. Often, leasing terms are designed to squeeze all of the profit out of the tenants’ operations.

You tell Sally that you developed a pro and con sheet for each document that you will present and discuss in the discussion assignment. This way, we can develop a Term Sheet (PDF) (Example) and negotiation strategy to deal with the broker. But first, we need to calculate our potential operating costs to determine our potential income
