Why Buy a Property Leased to the US Postal Service?

 

Anyone can own one of the thousands of buildings leased to the United States Postal Service.  Post offices can provide returns of 6-30% or more and the rental income is backed by the U.S. government.  There are approximately 35,000 postal facilities in the U.S. and ~75% are privately owned.  Post offices come in all different sizes, and prices can range from a few thousand to several millions of dollars to satisfy all investment objectives.
