money house estate

At JDKatz, P.C., we understand that selling an owner-occupied business, particularly in the context of commercial real estate, requires a nuanced strategy that considers both the business’s operational strengths and the inherent value of the real estate it occupies. We often face this challenge in the administration of estates. Now through our strategic partnership with Bethesda Brokers LLC, we employ a multifaceted approach to obtain the highest value for these businesses.

Comprehensive Valuation

The first step in our process is to accurately value the business and the underlying real estate. Our team at JDKatz, P.C. works closely with third party valuation experts to assess not only the current income generated by the business but also the potential of the real estate itself. We utilize a variety of approaches, such as the income approach for the business and comparable sales for the property, to determine an appropriate asking price that maximizes your value.

Detailed Financial Analysis

To attract potential buyers, we prepare detailed financial documents that highlight the business’s profitability, cash flows, and growth prospects. Our team at JDKatz, P.C. collaborates with Bethesda Brokers LLC to showcase the potential for rental income, appreciation, and redevelopment of the real estate component. We also provide a comprehensive breakdown of operating costs, potential tax benefits, and financing options to present a clear and compelling financial picture to prospective buyers.

Strategic Market Positioning

Understanding the market and positioning the sale to attract the right buyers is crucial. Our strategic partnership allows our clients to better target investors interested in owner-occupied properties, real estate investors seeking commercial spaces, and businesses in similar industries. We can leverage the expertise of Bethesda Brokers LLC to curate marketing materials that highlight the unique advantages of owning both a business and its real estate, appealing to specific audiences.

Extensive Network and Marketing Reach

Through our collaboration with Bethesda Brokers LLC, we utilize a broad range of marketing channels, from online commercial real estate platforms to industry-specific networks. This extensive reach allows us to connect with a wider audience of potential buyers. Additionally, Bethesda Brokers LLC maintains a strong network of local business owners, industry groups, and real estate investors, enabling us to uncover buyers who may not be actively searching the market.

Skilled Negotiation and Deal Structuring

As a combined team of attorneys and brokers, we implement a strong negotiation strategy that addresses buyer concerns and delivers maximum value to our clients. Whether you are considering or prepared to offer concessions or financing options that make the deal more attractive, or considering other strategic alternatives, our team can ensure your interests are protected. Our expertise in deal structuring allows us to craft agreements that benefit both the seller and the buyer, such as offering seller financing or lease-back options, which can lead to a higher sale price.

Regulatory Compliance and Due Diligence

Our team at JDKatz, P.C. ensures that all regulatory requirements are met, and we assist with the due diligence process. By leveraging our legal expertise, we help our sellers obtain all necessary documentation, permits, and legal compliances related to the business and property. This thorough approach makes the transaction smoother and more appealing to buyers.

Market Timing and Future Potential

We understand the importance of timing the sale to coincide with favorable market conditions. Our strategic partnership with Bethesda Brokers LLC allows us to advise on the best time to sell based on economic indicators, interest rates, and real estate market cycles. Additionally, we focus not only on the current value but also on the future potential of the business and property. By presenting opportunities for expansion, redevelopment, or repositioning in the market, we showcase the growth potential to buyers.
