Decisions regarding whether to acquire or sell property demand objective counsel. Current and reliable market data are essential to inform the decision-making process. Our firm is frequently asked to formulate disposition or acquisition strategies. We are often retained to evaluate a portfolio of properties and identify those which have near-term development or disposition potential. As part of this process, physical and locational attributes, development timing, market conditions, and investor objectives are all considered. Our expertise is also useful to investor groups looking to purchase real estate. We can thoroughly canvass the market, identify potential investment opportunities, and formulate an acquisition strategy. To view an illustrative example, please click here.
