Adding Value Throughout the Process
Golf Course disposition is a complicated form of brokerage. A good brokerage team can build on an owner's insight, adding significantly to both the valuation and disposition process. One of the major differences between traditional commercial property and a golf course is the complexity of the physical plant and the myriad of issues that can affect a property’s improvements. Part of what we term "the discovery phase” during preparation to market, involves reviewing all of the physical plant issues from a buyer’s perspective. Our experts then leverage local relationships to obtain bids for deferred maintenance items and/or necessary equipment purchases or leases.
In doing this, and by insisting that buyer prospects review the appropriate material in our secure due diligent vault prior to drafting an offer, we can better target a realistic disposition price and greatly reduce the chance for buyer re-trade of an agreed to disposition price. The depth of our pre-marketing "discovery phase” reflects our detailed, client-focused approach to all levels of Golf Course brokerage.
The Golf Course Brokerage Specialist team provides a deep understanding of factors associated with Golf Course disposition. From pre-marketing, intensive "discovery phase” physical property investigation, to marketing efforts that are sensitive to the on-going concerns of the operating business, to rigorous vetting of prospects, to guidance through the LOI and contract period, the team offers unparalleled client service. We are a seller-focused service, and our team represents both institutional and private clients; buyer representation is not a part of our Group’s business model.
Partial List of Institutional Clients
As a golf course owner, the solution to a cash flow issue might mean something other than sale. Golf is a management-intensive business, and the difference from one management company to the next can be significant, both in terms of rate and performance. In a potential change-of-management situation, our platform can offer the client a formal Request for Proposal process, or a more streamlined process in which we recommend several management companies that are best suited for the specific market and property. Our team can also provide a comprehensive Brokers Price Opinion that will include an analysis of the asset's position in the marketplace.
