Having a vision for the future
Real estate professionals create more than properties. Developers are innately visionary, seeing the future where others see only open land, or blight. You have a vision for your company as well, and it is likely requiring every ounce of your commitment and business savvy to see it through. In the post-bubble real estate environment, only the strongest are surviving.
To make it in this industry, you need an accounting firm with the strength to support your goals, and the fortitude to help you expand your business opportunities. You need a team who will go to the mat for you. Clark Schaefer Hackett’s Real Estate Group is that team.
We offer you an edge. Our experience provides you a blueprint for improving and growing your company. For several decades our advisement of the area’s most prominent real estate developers has resulted in higher profits, excellent cash-flow, attractive taxing situations, and – when needed – beneficial mergers, acquisitions, and ownership transfers.
Strengthening Your Business
Good business decisions are based on a clear understanding of your company’s finances. We’ll help assess your financial picture, and set your expectations for growth. But we’ll also strategize operational changes that can make that picture more attractive to lenders. Our group is well recognized in the real estate industry, and we have collaborative relationships with financial institutions that can benefit you.
Minimizing Your Tax Burden
Our group has specialized knowledge of the U.S. tax code, especially the unique opportunities written specifically for the real estate industry. We can help you reduce the considerable business cost of taxation, while taking care of necessary reporting and compliance.
Managing Your Operations
To stay on top of your game, your business should be constantly evaluating itself and looking for improvement. Our experience in the real estate industry has taught us which processes and systems work. We will be your resource for best practices, throughout the real estate life cycle: from concept and development to property management. And we’ll help you measure and evaluate what is working – and what isn’t – so you can advance your business.
Our operational services include:
We’ve got your back. We can assist you and your attorney in difficult situations: tenant contract disputes, claims, litigation, and even default. We’ll provide forensic accounting, expert testimony, schedule and delay analysis, as well as audited data or financial statements. We will be a strong and steady resource as you weather any storm.
Making the Most of Your Life’s Work
Rely on us when it’s time to acquire another company, merge with a peer business, sell the organization, or transfer it to the next generation.
