Ownership & Financing

Summit Smith helps clients identify ownership and financing alternatives for their new projects and current real estate holdings.  We thoroughly analyze different ownership and financing solutions to determine what effect different structures have on our client’s balance sheet, income statement, cash flow and overall financial picture.  We prepare cost benefit analyses and make recommendations that match our client’s goals and objectives and then create and implement ownership and financing structures that meet their objectives.  Our goal is to help our clients make informed decisions on ownership structure and financing issues, to feel comfortable with the decisions they make and then properly follow through and implement those decisions.

We are often asked by our clients to take the position of both developer and owner of their real estate projects.  When this request is made, Summit Smith is prepared to develop, own, and manage commercial real estate and assume 100 percent of the risk of real estate ownership and 100 percent of the responsibility for the debt and equity.
