Colliers International's team of investment sales specialists sees beyond the bricks and mortar to analyze how property acquisition, ownership and disposition can accelerate the success of your financial portfolio. We provide a single point of accountability and collaborate with specialists in a variety of service areas at each stage of the property ownership cycle:
1. Investment Strategy
Your real estate investment advisor is your strategic partner in achieving your financial goals. We collaboratively build an investor profile based on your resources and requirements to ensure you see every suitable investment opportunity within your defined geographic target area.
2. Acquisition and Due Diligence
Once a potential investment property is identified, we work through the property’s documentation to understand current and future contracts and obligations, risk scenarios based on lease expirations and deferred maintenance, and a thorough assessment of the property’s current management and performance. Our valuation team brings fast, accurate, well-supported documentation to justify current property values, and we also take a big-picture look at market dynamics and how issues such as government regulation, infrastructure development and new construction can affect long-term values.
3. Ongoing Management
Our investment services professionals work with a skilled team of property managers to elevate a property's value and increase its return on investment. We work closely with experts in leasing, property management and project management to bring insight to this process, such as:
- assessing whether improvements could save energy and reduce operating costs,
- exploring whether changing vendors or services could improve tenant satisfaction, and
- ensuring your property remains at the top of its competitive set to retain and attract tenants.
Investment services professionals not only help you sell your property, but also help you determine the best time frame and process for this major financial move, taking into account potential tax ramifications and the market cycle to generate the strongest interest in your property.
By planning a disposition strategy around these elements—speed, price and risk—we weed out unqualified buyers, reduce the possibility of retrades and capitalize on the strongest market demand.
