Consulting & Assessment Services

Working primarily with capital providers who have provided financing to real estate projects that have been foreclosed upon, The EPH Group works at the local level to assess OREO assets and determine “as is” and “highest and best use” values. These valuations are prepared based on detailed loan file reviews, site inspections, extensive local market intelligence, zoning and entitlement evaluations, construction requirements with detailed cost estimates, and research-based financial modeling of expected internal rates of return for various project alternatives. These assessments, packaged in detailed business plans by project initiative, support the owning organizations in liquidate versus hold-and-complete decisions. For owners of real estate portfolios with multiple and/or diverse assets, The EPH Group plays a vital role in evaluating projects within or across markets to support competing capital allocation decisions.
