Bringing financial expertise to real estate

Our real estate clients depend on us for services such as loan restructuring, operational improvement, and credit workouts of distressed assets. If loan restructuring is the best solution for your organization, we can recommend and advocate various debt modification structures, review and comment on the feasibility of management’s assumptions, and analyze project completion costs.

If you are considering operational improvement, you can depend on our real estate consultants for cash flow analysis and operational assessments. We also can help assess and quantify alternative courses of action. In addition, we can assist with site inspections and preparation of asset condition reports. 

We can help when credit workouts and debt modification are the answers

In cases of credit workouts and debt modification, we can help with the financial modeling of various assumed outcomes, analyze lender loan deficiencies, and guarantee exposure. For purposes of cancellation of debt, we can help you calculate entity or individual insolvency. If you need help selecting an ombudsman or resolving Deficit Restoration Obligations (DROs), we also have the experience to help.

You can depend on us to help with a schedule of liabilities based on the “Absolute Priority Rule” and a lender deficiency schedule for orderly and forced liquidation, as well as 1111(b) election consultation.

We can help you prepare for creditor meetings and presentations of financial information as well as calculate the cash available to pay secured, under secured, and unsecured creditors. Moving forward we can help you develop net operating loss tax strategies and negotiate standstill agreements.

These are very difficult times, but with our experience, we can help you most effectively navigate through these issues.

“We appreciate the continuity on Plante Moran’s tax and audit teams and the way they work together so that there is no duplication on our part in regards to providing information. We can depend on them to get everything done on time and also keep us up-to-date on reporting and tax issues that affect our industry. To sum up our experience with Plante & Moran -- we are very happy with the service and very pleased with the price.”
