Real Estate Investment
The Pestlin & Co. team combines many years of valuable experience in advising on complex and large-volume real estate transactions. The complexity involved in the purchase or sale of real estate portfolios or project developments often results on the one hand from the initial situation with regard to company and tax law, as well as the balance sheet situation, and on the other from the financing possibilities, price expectations and competitive pressure. This is another reason why we carefully examine our client’s objectives before approaching the market – whether for purchase or sale. Our special expertise is documented by our references and the trust which major market players have repeatedly placed in us. Based on our many years of experience and the implementation of innovative financial instruments, we can raise the transaction reliability, develop additional options for action and thus generate a direct added value for our clients.
Our consulting services are geared towards property developers who regularly face the question of whether to delay the sale of their new projects until the property has been built and fully let, or to sell before construction begins by means of a forward deal. Not every new project is suitable for a forward deal and not every project has to be recognised on the developer’s own balance sheet. The possibilities to optimise (land acquisition) tax have to be reconciled with the financing structures according to the investor’s needs.
Real Estate Portfolio
Price premiums can be achieved on the sale of real estate portfolios to specific transaction partners as this may result in strategic advantages for the buyers. However, this requires the right portfolio structure. We provide detailed advice on the portfolio structure of our clients before the sale process begins.
Following our strategic advice on the purchase or sale of real estate, the transaction process begins – for the buyer or seller. We handle the marketing, organise and manage electronic data rooms, accompany the due diligence processes and conduct negotiations together with the lawyers, accountants and auditors of our clients.
