Situs is uniquely positioned to meet this need in a number of ways
BERLIN (PRWEB) March 10, 2008
In addition to the firm's established array of due diligence and loan underwriting services, which Situs has heretofore offered through its London office, the firm will now deliver real estate-related financial services to institutional investors, hedge funds, private-equity groups and high-net-worth individuals looking to expand or modify their commercial real estate investments across Europe.
Situs will also now offer surveillance reporting and other asset management services to existing holders of commercial real estate properties or portfolios, who may wish to reassess their investment positions as market conditions continue to evolve.
While these service offerings may be relatively new to the European real estate community, the firm has previous experience successfully implementing such services in the United States. It will leverage this experience with established European real estate professionals, whose diverse backgrounds include real estate finance, banking, accounting, valuation, brokerage and many others. According to Situs CEO Ralph Howard, the European markets are now ripe for such service offerings.
"As real estate markets across Europe continue to grow and develop, the need for increased asset management, financial services and greater transparency will become more and more apparent," he said. "Situs is uniquely positioned to meet this need in a number of ways," he added.
