During the acquisition process, each asset is subject to a hold/sell analysis that is then reviewed and adjusted annually. A property’s performance is actively monitored and a thoroughly reviewed quarterly to ensure returns are being achieved. The decision to hold or sell an asset considers numerous factors including: client objectives, asset sector dynamics, market / submarket status, anticipated capital requirements, rent roll quality, and capital market conditions.
Once a property or portfolio is identified for disposition, we will present supporting analysis to our client showing why we recommend the divestment. We then discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the sale and if our client agrees with the sale recommendation, we will proactively manage the disposition process. We will prepare all documents for the sale, marketing for the sale and execution of successful sale.
We frequently partner with our institutional clients in the formation of joint ventures for the acquisition or development of real estate. These joint venture relationships have included partnerships with private owners, private developers, private institutions and private REITs. Bamboo is familiar with the complexities of reporting and the diligence of capital associated with these types of relationships.
