Feasibility Study

Our due diligence starts with a full Feasibility Study. This report is based on, among other things, verifiable market information. With most projects, the owners simply need help selling – or marketing – their product. The first step in successfully doing so is determining how it stacks up to the competition. In some cases, the property's use must change in order to be competitive. Therefore, we pay close attention to market conditions as well as where the market is headed.

It may be that Fractional Ownership is the right choice for some owners, particularly in resort areas in which it is a more affordable alternative to buyers unwilling to take the financial risks of full ownership. We will help determine this during our due diligence phase and guide you in the process should a change of use be your best solution.
Phases of Feasibility Study

Comprehensive Market Analysis – similar to an appraisal but with added emphasis on alternative use possibilities, including a complete study of market conditions (tourism, real estate, and retail) for the immediate area and surrounding communities.
We will look extensively at product opportunities for retail and residential, paying close attention to what's missing or what other resort areas do successfully. Included will be at least one trip to the area for approximately 3 weeks.
A Summary Analysis Report, along with recommendations, will be provided. The purpose of this report is to provide an accurate picture of the project as it sits today as well as future opportunities. Verifiable  information will be necessary for potential  investors or lending sources and will be included. The property's highest value and best use plan will be determined at this point.
Timeline – depending on the amount of information provided by the client, this report generally takes about two to three months to complete, include the in-person visit to the area.
Business Plan – incorporates results from the Market Analysis to reflect the property's highest value and best use.
Used to evaluate the financial feasibility of a proposed program and guides recommended composition and phasing of the project to maximize financial returns consistent with anticipated goals.
The financial model defines the expected profitability and rate of return of a proposed project. Includes the following:

i.      Once all alternatives are considered, we prepare a proforma cash flow statement, which contains an estimate of the project's revenues, costs, and net cash flow before and after debt service.

ii.      We consider a project's flexibility to ensure we achieve the desired financial results both short- and long-term, since situations can change over time.

We will interpret the results of the analysis and its recommendations concerning project feasibility in the areas of timing, phasing, strategy, marketing program, and potential for joint venture or outright sale.


Creative Concepts

We go to great lengths to look at each project individually and provide a customized solution to suit your needs. This is best done with an in-depth Feasibility Study in which we look closely at market conditions and other factors before making a recommendation regarding your project, which may involve a hybrid concept.

Our approach involves fitting the right product to your unique situation. Our hybrid models maximize the property’s potential through efficiency, something everyone should be paying attention to in today’s market.
