Real Estate Valuations

Increasing transparency of financial reporting in the real estate industry drives many companies to seek help with real estate needs related to transactions, valuations, and asset recapitalization.

Asset valuation estimates can directly impact financial statements and are often heavily scrutinized by management, auditors, regulators, and investors. Address your stakeholders’ concerns and make informed decisions that can help meet reporting requirements with guidance from our professionals.

Maintain and monitor compliance with current valuation reporting requirements as our professionals perform, document, and review real estate asset and entity valuations and can support your data analysis needs.

Real Estate Consulting

Proper project planning and evaluation requires real-time market information and workforces operating to their full potential.

Identify and unlock the value in your real estate to help determine and enhance the most productive use of your real estate.  

Real estate advisory projects can include market feasibility studies, acquisition due diligence, assumption underwriting, development funding gap analysis, municipal tax benefit studies, and studies to identify excess or underutilized assets.

These studies can help you understand how to:

  • Monetize tangible equity
  • Estimate taxable sales to fund development gaps
  • Determine options and alternative scenarios for redevelopment projects, allowing you to pivot in the market
  • Assist with estimates of cash flow assumptions for transactions

Cash-Flow Modeling

Cash-flow modeling is an essential component to manage and lead a profitable real estate business and understand the potential financial returns of a project.

Understanding project cash flow supports informed decision-making regarding capital expenditures, buy/sell/hold decisions, rates of return, and equity waterfall profit splits—whether you’re completing simple projections or building robust financial modeling tools capable of layering in multiple levels of debt and equity waterfalls.

Our team deploys numerous custom financial analyses and monitoring tools for use in a range of property types. Analyses can help improve understanding of impact of cash-flow drivers, leading to more confident decision-making.

Monitoring tools can help facilitate cash-driver target settings and provide a basis for enhanced analysis and reporting of cash-flow performance against targets, as well as earlier indicators of expected cash flows.

Cash-flow modeling can also help improve understanding of cash impact on investment decisions, and access to capital as it can build confidence for capital providers. Services also extend to mergers and acquisitions, divestiture and deal analysis, and modeling and structuring.
