Clareo Advisors provides comprehensive support and acquisition services in connection with commercial real estate transactions. Our firm will act as your in-house acquisition team, performing all necessary due diligence on a property to ensure investments decisions are made with accurate and complete information. Our clients include family offices and high-net worth individuals who may lack the infrastructure or dedicated real estate team required to thoughtfully pursue commercial real estate investments.
ON-SITE DUE DILIGENCE
Clareo will conduct on-site inspections and walkthroughs of the subject property. We coordinate, review and summarize all available reports, including (but not limited to) Phase I Environmental, Structural Engineering Assessment, and/or General Property Inspection. Third Party reports will often reveal a great deal of information around the physical condition of a property and will help you better prepare for future capital expenditures.
We will independently re-create defensible cash flow & expected return models for our clients using our own (fair) assumptions derived by extensive property and market research. We will also stress test the underlying assumptions in a variety of scenarios, so our clients better understand the range of potential investment outcomes and eliminate any surprises
We perform a comprehensive review of all material property expenses. This includes reviewing historical expenses, reconciling any abnormalities that may exist, and using judgment to make reasonable projections in-line with industry standards. This can also help buyers identify cost saving strategies with their investment.
We will explore the supply & demand drivers of a given market to understand the engines of growth and supply picture. A thorough review of relevant sale & lease comps help determine the market environment for the subject property. Our goal is to determine the true competitive set for the a property and understand how it is positioned within the market. With that information, operational goals can be realistically set and achieved.
LEASE REVIEW &
Clareo will identify and extract key data from complex documents and present them in a clear and simple format. This step in our process validates the income source of the investment, and highlights any discrepancies, concessions, or required improvements. We will also coordinate and host tenant interviews should they be warranted.
