Prior to searching for investment opportunities, an established understanding of what type of asset will best suit our clients’ preferences, needs and capabilities is necessary. An investor’s residence geography may prohibit him or her from finding local assets that generate a reasonable rate of return due to high demand, or may focus on properties deemed less management intensive not having the resources to oversee shared aspects of a multi-tenant holding; these are hurdles KDS Commercial Properties is positioned to assist investors overcome.
Our primary goal is to increase a client’s exposure to available properties based on criteria established in this initial phase and develop a plan that maximizes value and returns of a client’s investment.
Evaluation of Target Offerings (Underwriting and Due Diligence)
With past experience as employees of development firms, the partners of KDS Commercial Properties have extensive experience performing underwriting, due diligence, and asset management functions from an owner’s perspective. We apply this mindset to better understand the viability of target properties for the benefit of clients and summarize attributes that may negatively affect value and returns. KDS Commercial Properties is positioned to oversee and/or perform underwriting and due diligence functions turn-key on behalf of clients. These functions include:
Conservative financial modeling is utilized to produce anticipated return results of a target property or properties.
