What do we do?

Pre-purchase property analysis/analysis of existing property portfolios

Are you cur­rent­ly con­sid­er­ing whether to buy a prop­er­ty? Are you won­der­ing what the tax impact would be on your assets and whether it real­ly makes sense to buy? Or do you per­haps already own prop­er­ty that is rent­ed out or is mixed-use?
We con­duct a thor­ough prop­er­ty analy­sis either pre-pur­chase or for exist­ing port­fo­lios, tak­ing a close look at the prop­er­ties and answer­ing any ques­tions you have.

Some of the questions our clients often ask:

  • How much cap­i­tal do I need to be able to buy?
  • What counts as cap­i­tal?
  • What is the effec­tive return on the prop­er­ty I rent out?
  • How long will it take to pay off my mort­gage?
  • How high are the actu­al costs over the entire term of the mort­gage?
  • What is the sit­u­a­tion with regard to tax on a prop­er­ty pur­chased in anoth­er coun­try?
  • Is it pos­si­ble to pay cash for a prop­er­ty?
  • How far in the future can the pur­chase date for a prop­er­ty be?
  • How long does the process of rescind­ing a con­tract take?
