Ready to Advise

Increase capacity, delegate tasks, and do more with greater ease.

Prior to searching for investment opportunities, an established understanding of what type of asset will best suit our clients’ preferences, needs and capabilities is necessary. An investor’s residence geography may prohibit him or her from finding local assets that generate a reasonable rate of return due to high demand, or may focus on properties deemed less management intensive not having the resources to oversee shared aspects of a multi-tenant holding; these are hurdles KDS Caine Commercial Real Estate is positioned to assist investors overcome.

Our primary goal is to increase a client’s exposure to available properties based on criteria established in this initial phase and develop a plan that maximizes value and returns of a client’s investment.

Evaluation of Target Offerings (Underwriting and Due Diligence)

With past experience as employees of development firms, the partners of KDS Caine have extensive experience performing underwriting, due diligence, and asset management functions from an owner’s perspective. We apply this mindset to better understand the viability of target properties for the benefit of clients and summarize attributes that may negatively affect value and returns. KDS Caine is positioned to oversee and/or perform underwriting and due diligence functions turn-key on behalf of clients. These functions include:

Pro-Forma Creation

Conservative financial modeling is utilized to produce anticipated return results of a target property or properties. Historical and potential lease revenues, tax values, and operating and ownership expenses are verified to produce probable cash flow scenarios over a projected hold period. All proformas are independently constructed by KDS Caine Commercial Real Estate, which are then compared to any seller generated model for the purpose of validating an advertised capitalization rate and listing price.

Lease Review and Summary Reports
