Real Estate Advisory Services
A developer seeking to take a project through the entitlement process, a pension fund evaluating the performance of its real estate portfolio, or a company planning to sell an office building may turn to a consultant for advice and assistance.
Real estate consultants may provide a full range of services including market analysis, feasibility analysis, real estate research, site selection, environmental impact studies, and so forth.
A number specialize in a particular product category, such as apartments or retail. Clients value consultants because they maintain extensive market databases and provide special knowledge or expertise than can be used to develop more business, reduce costs, improve the performance of investment portfolios, or achieve other business and investment goals.
