The selling of a parcel of land whereby the original owner agrees to immediately leaseback the property. The advantage of the land sale-leaseback in that the original property owner can realize the capital value of the property while still retaining its use. For example, John wants to acquire another commercial piece of property. He agrees to a land sale-leaseback of the land upon which his office building is constructed. He sells the property to Jack agreeing to make rental payments to the new owner while still occupying the office building. Realizing the capital value of the land, he is now able to acquire the second piece of commercial property.
