Canadian Fishing & Hunting Lodge, Camp and Resort Appraisal Specialists:
I fluked into my first ever fishing lodge appraisal.
I was new to commercial real estate in general, but a fishing lodge… I had never even heard of anyone else appraising one.
I’ve loved the outdoor tourism industry since I was a kid and was excited to be involved with it again but this time as an appraiser, not a dock boy.
Since that first fishing lodge appraisal, I’ve gone on to serve fishing & hunting lodge, camp and resort owners across Canada.
I saw how under served this industry was and decided to dedicate my career to developing tailored solutions specifically for lodge, camp & resort investors.
Fishing & Hunting Lodges, Camps and Resorts get more and more complicated the more you study them.
My job is to compile the best lodge, camp & resort – sale and financial data I possibly can. I’ve compiled ALOT of data and have studied the various intricacies, looked for patterns and applied my findings to produce appraisal reports that give you an extremely detailed analysis supporting the final market value estimate.
The Best Fishing & Hunting Lodge, Camp & Resort Sale & Financial Data:
Some people hunt for moose, I hunt for fishing & hunting lodge, camp and resort sales data.
The sale of these types of business is often kept very quiet because owners don’t want to create concern for employees & guests.
The discretion with which the sale of these types of businesses are handled means that most appraisal firms have very limited data if any at all.
Being a preferred supplier of NOTO, Kenora District Camp Owners Association and the Manitoba Lodges and Outfitters Association gives us the inside track on the latest transactions and issues affecting the industry.
We also advertise fishing & hunting lodges, camps and resorts for sale for owners for free. Owners are often grateful for our help and let us know their sale price to help improve our data and support similar operations.
All Appraisal Reports are AACI Certified.
The AACI designation is granted to individuals who have completed the AACI program of studies and fulfilled all the professional requirements of the Appraisal Institute of Canada.
Fishing & hunting lodges, camps and resorts are appraised as “Going-concerns”.
The term ‘going-concern’ is defined in The Appraisal of Real Estate, 3rd Edition, wherein the definition is: “All tangible and intangible assets of an established and operating business with an indefinite life.”
