Baker & Maxwell’s proprietary investment platform affords our clients with real estate investment opportunities unlike those available anywhere else. Our portfolio of advisory services includes: strategic marketing to uncover opportunities, contract negotiation, underwriting services, due diligence, financing, asset management, valuation services, and disposition services. All with a core value of client risk mitigation paired with maximum ROI.
One of the biggest challenges in successful real estate investing is uncovering the best opportunities available on and off-market. Baker & Maxwell analytics team has developed a state-of-the-art program leveraging the latest property research technology in combination with good old-fashioned phone skills to bring our clients the best available properties that meet their criteria.
Simply put, real estate underwriting is the process by which real estate investments are evaluated to determine their viability and potential. Subpar underwriting can result in substantial losses for investors. When assessing each prospective investment for our clients, Baker & Maxwell employs a proactive, holistic approach that factors in both quantifiable data points and qualitative attributes, including market sentiment and development experience. We do not use a one-size-fits-all approach. Given that our clients invest in a variety of real estate asset types, we have the flexibility to recommend the investments we believe will produce the best risk-adjusted returns.
On behalf of our clients, our underwriting team performs an extensive and robust analysis to make sure each investment opportunity itself has a compelling risk-return profile. This stage involves site visits, a study of comparable properties, a comprehensive appraisal, a thorough budget analysis, pro-forma financial analysis and setting up the legal/organizational structure, among other things.
Financing is one of the biggest threats to a satisfactory ROI in real estate investing, and our clients often avoid it. However, depending on the asset, our client’s ideal lender may occasionally choose to finance a purchase based on their overall investment strategy. Baker & Maxwell has this covered as well. Through a highly developed network of lenders, our clients have multiple financing options available to them including bank lending, private money, flash funding, and other sources to name a few. Baker & Maxwell advisory services play a key role in helping match our client's financing needs with the ideal lender and negotiate on their behalf to lock in the most favorable terms available.
The broad objective of our asset management team is to maximize property value and our client’s investment returns. This means reducing expenditures when possible, finding the most consistent and highest sources of revenue, and mitigating liability and risk, among other things. Baker & Maxwell analyzes each asset in depth and makes recommendations based on our client’s overall investment strategy.
Here at Baker & Maxwell, we believe that every asset or group of assets is unique and we develop specific plans for our client’s particular needs. Our combined group of experts develops a strategic action plan that includes the most current information on market conditions, capital flows, local market intelligence, and emerging trends to determine the exact metrics needed to achieve stated objectives successfully. Our analysts have specialized knowledge in all major property types with advisors in all major markets around the country.
Baker & Maxwell is also a strategic buyer seeking compelling investment opportunities through its affiliated acquisition entities. Over the years, our principals have acquired millions of square feet of industrial, office, retail, and special facilities throughout the U.S., often to help expedite a company’s ability to raise cash or liquidate a property.
