Asset evaluation is an essential part of property management. It begins before the property is acquired and continues throughout the entire period of investor ownership. Due diligence supports the purchase decision for existing properties. Feasibility analysis supports the decision to develop new properties. During the ownership period, the same processes that informed the purchasing decision prove invaluable to annual budgeting preparation. Finally, when the property matures and market conditions change, owners must evaluate the physical and financial condition of the property in order to make a critical decision: renovate, sell, or refinance.
