Real estate

Real-estate consulting for insolvencies and critical situations.

FalkenSteg’s Real Estate team has developed into one of the leading transaction consultants for properties in critical situations. The unique market position of our Real Estate team is underscored by our clear focus on business crises and our interdisciplinary approach to consulting, involving collaboration with our M&A, debt-advisory and restructuring business segments. We are able to reliably generate sales solutions through pragmatic and determined action, which is closely based on the proven methods used in structured M&A processes. Depending on the target market, we can also offer specialised advisory services to assist with producing property valuations, providing restructuring services and planning the implementation of trust models.

  • Retail sector
  • Logistics
  • Light industrial
  • Hotels
  • Social and care facilities

What makes FalkenSteg's real-estate experts special.

Our approach

Our clients benefit from access to a network of investment companies and financial investors specialising in real estate, with a proven track record from working on a variety of Transactions.

In close coordination with our Distressed M&A team, we can carry out both comprehensive and specialised marketing processes for businesses with or without the inclusion of commercial property. In particular, private-equity investors sometimes prefer to purchase a business without corporate real estate in what is known as an asset-light transaction. Implementing the relevant marketing processes at the same time creates opportunities for parties on both the buy and sell sides to take action, increasing the probability of a value-maximising bidding contest.

Upstream from property transactions, we will gladly support you with valuations and strategic issues, for instance with alternative management approaches.
