Recognizing the need for specialized services to Ontario's hospitality industry, ourTeam brings to the table over twenty years experience in converting older and sometimes "Historic" buildings to new uses. Understanding the unique characteristics of these buildings can sometimes be a challenge when preparing the property and/or business to be placed on the market.
In Ontario there are hundreds of country INNs, B & B's, hotels, motels, restaurants, resorts and Spas, and every year many of these properties change hands. Buyers are also interested in finding that "perfect" Historic mansion and convert to new uses. Our TEAM can assist in the London market area including Middlesex and Elgin Counties, Stratford and with our connections in The Georgian Bay area and Niagara Region, ie. Lincoln, Vineland, St. Catharines, Niagara On The Lake.
Before listing any property, financial statements are analyzed in detail, the property is visited, and in -depth discussions are held with the owners. The property is given careful consideration to determine a proper marketing price, taking into account how that price will fit into the current hospitality market, the region, as well as the overall Historic integrity of the property. If a property is strictly an Historic structure; then we start from the point of developing a complete Feasibility Study of the property, the region, the potential market, management, needs assessment, not to mention the condition of the property.
Innkeepers who are planning on selling their property or even considering the notion, or if you are a buyer considering a new lifestyle in the Southern Ontario area; then there are several things to consider in the early planning stages.
