Leveraging is one of the key reasons why real estate is able to consistently outperform many other asset classes in the long run. By using smaller outlays to control larger value assets, investors are able to magnify their returns. However, leveraging is a double edged sword that can wreck havoc on holding power if not properly managed.
The lending environment today is one that is volatile and ever-changing whether it be interest rates or lending policies. It is something which many countries will regulate in order to curb excessive price speculation, foreign participation and debt management. With new constraints comes new solutions. Beyond traditional onshore mortgage, there are a variety of financing strategies that are more cost or tax efficient. Different strategies come with different risks and management overheads that will need to be assessed, structured and managed. That is what our financing advisory service is about.
Acquiring a real estate investment asset is a major decision for anyone to undertake. The significant capital outlay required means that investors should allocate more time to research and consider the decision, instead of simply popping into a weekend exhibition for a sales pitch.
From time to time we will come across clients who are keen to liquidate their assets for one reason or another. It may be due to the asset having achieved its mid or long term peak and profit taking would be appropriate in anticipation of downside risk. Or it may be the need to liquidate for other financial needs.
We work closely with our clients and the respective partners to achieve the best possible result in the liquidation process, taking into account currency exchange rates, market cycles and taxes/duties.
As one’s real estate portfolio grows in scale, it is easy to become lost in all the details, and failing to monitor the performance and associated risks of the assets. Are the yields up to par? Has the capital values increased or decreased? Are the financing arrangements optimised? Will the assets face threats as conditions to the economy, politics, currencies, regulations, location and demand/supply change? Should one continue to hold, sell or acquire additional assets in-line with one's objectives?
While property can be one of the easiest investment assets to hold, it is a directly-owned investment which requires a fair amount of time and effort from the investors themselves.
Monitoring the markets, foreseeing the risks and challenges, managing the performance and potential of the portfolio, and optimising loans and forex strategies. These are all necessary preoccupations and considerations.
