This is the perfect solution for owners who are in the beginning stages of planning for their sale. I'll help you understand your market value and how you can improve it. The commercial real estate appraisal will not only inform you on the value drivers for businesses like yours, but it will also provide a detailed, well supported value opinion that will assist you during sale negotiations.

It's important that you get national and international exposure for these unique properties.

Effective For Sale Advertising Specifically For Lodges, Marinas & Resorts
Most realtor sites and business for sale sites are not designed to attract buyers interested in lodges, marinas or resorts. As such, these unique businesses get mixed in with unrelated businesses and do not attract the right audience.
I have surveyed the industry and only 45% of owners were from the same general region as their fishing & hunting lodge, marina or resort at the time of purchase, 55% of owners were from outside the general region that the business is located within. Of these buyers, 40% found the business online and 60% found the business through some sort of word of mouth as the business was not publicly advertised for sale. Some were guests of the business, some approached the owner directly and asked if they’d be interested in selling.
The majority of buyers come from outside of the general region that the lodge, marina or resort is located in. In order to reach the most potential buyers you’re going to need national and international exposure for your for sale listing.
If advertised for sale in my Marketplace, your listing won’t be mixed in with a bunch of unrelated for sale listings and will get international exposure. 100% of site visitors to my Marketplace are searching for Fishing & Hunting Lodges, Marinas & Resorts For Sale. My site currently receives 9,000+ user sessions per month.
