SERVICES FOR PRIVATE AND INSTITUTIONAL OWNERS
From the development of a management strategy to its implementation
Our real estate management focuses on 3 distinct and complementary services in order to sustainably improve the return on your property investments while taking into consideration your expectations, the characteristics of the properties and market developments.
Strategic advice begins with the statement of the owner’s financial objectives and ends, after several stages, with the development of a management strategy.
Advice on real estate management aims on an ongoing basis to monitor the administration and to boost actions to improve the return so as to perpetuate the properties.
Technical management comprises supervision of the works from their quantification and planning through to their final completion, on a sporadic basis.
Are you undertaking works to enhance your asset? We assist you with the technical and legal aspects.
The management of your real estate portfolio requires a long-term vision, dedicated to your own needs. Its implementation is based on cross-disciplinary skills that are guaranteed by our thirty years of experience. We act as broker for the exclusive account of our clients and future clients.
No management of real estate assets is possible without rigorous and regular reporting, followed by an analysis of the available data. SwissRem relies on a management software developed internally and specially adapted to the needs of owners of investment properties.
The management of family properties requires particular expertise and sensitivity. The strategy for real estate assets takes on a special dimension when it can affect relations between family members. Loyalty, independence and neutrality are the key words.
- Families put their trust in us in domains as diverse as construction, restructuring or management of their real estate assets – not to mention the equally important aspects represented by accounting, legal and fiscal questions, where confidentiality is paramount.
- Family offices don’t wish to include in their team a group specialised in real estate management. They prefer to subcontract this aspect of their activities by entrusting us with specialised or longer-term mandates.
Independence that Creates Value
Management habits shaken up by independence and creativity
Real estate management differs from the administration of properties through its constant quest for performance.
It’s a stimulus for value enhancement that focuses on the owner’s expectations while respecting the specificities of his real estate assets and the particularities of the market.
Priorities called into question
The value of a revenue-generating property asset takes into account its physical state together with its social and financial components.
Swiss Real Estate Management reverses the traditional order d of property management activities: les aspects financial and rental aspects are addressed on a priority basis with software specially developed for this purpose.
PERFORMANCE, TRANSPARENCY AND PRAGMATISM
By performance, we mean the result obtained both by increased revenues and capital gain. This implies that the quality of the object cannot be neglected in favour of short-term profits.
Our understanding of transparency can be expressed as follows: "There is no reason for an owner not to know everything about the management of his asset".
Pragmatism reminds us every day of the virtues of good sense and realism.
