First Valuation Group, and in particular Mark Ruttner, Managing Director, has over the last few years undertaken due diligence within the medical industry and associated real estate premises from all facets of the property spectrum. Accordingly, we are deemed as a specialist as to current market value, rental determination and associated advisory within this specific and specialist area of real estate.
There are many reasons to advise, consult or value the real estate component of a medical associated property including but not limited to:
Sale / Leasing of the property
Merger with group, partnership etc
Buy in or retirement of partner
Family law matters
Management of Investment
Medical property is one of the main specialist areas of expertise that we cater for. The main reason we are deemed to be experts in this area is that we have continually serviced many differing sub markets over a fifteen year period and have compiled an extensive database of current market evidence throughout the Melbourne Metropolitan area.
Our involvement commenced initially within the small one to two practitioner clinics, to now servicing public listed entities in the determination of current market value and rental.
In short, the key to our success in this area have been due to our exposure to open market and fractional transactions. Therefore, to have compiled such data you need to be involved directly and from a valuation sense this is exactly how we started servicing the medical property sub market, allowing FVG Property to accurately assess current market value and current market rental.
Medical property data has enabled First Valuation Group to grow from Certified Practicing Valuers within this market segment to now provide advisory services to include advice as indicated above.
Doctors and specialists even more so today require expert advice not just in regard to what the property is worth, but as the industry grows, so do the smaller practices. Therefore, expert advice is required to include all types of variances from – :
-Feasibility of what the project will include ie. from two practitioners to eleven practitioners. What will the real estate component look like, and can we use it to raise funds?
-What is the current market rental? Not just a random number selected by your accountant, but a sum reflective of current market evidence and evidence that supported if need be within a court of law.
– Bearing in mind that the property has been purpose built, what do we insure the buildings for?
– We are thinking of selling the property as an investment. What is the most probable price and what is the best method to dispose of the property, and how do we do it?
The above gives a very concise overview of the many facets of individual property and what First Valuation Group can do in relation to the real estate process.
