In-House Team

Our in house team compromises of architects, developers, surveyors, finance and property experts, shall begin to identify opportunities for the use of property. This involves assessing the value of the property in its current state and conducting a highest and best use analysis, which considers the current use of the property, its potential uses and their corresponding value.

Based on the complexity of certain of the land parcels it is imperative that the properties are analysed from a development perspective, which not only includes design and feasibility constraints, but also analysis from a regulatory framework (town planning and ElA, etc), which may have a significant impact on the sale and timeframes to close the transaction.

In doing so, our team can conduct due diligence, model cash flows and test
