Frontier Hospitality Advisor is a British Columbia based hotel, motel & inn appraisal service.

Northern BC Hotel, Motel & Inn Services

Hotel, Motel & Inn Real Estate Appraisals are my flagship service. Every year I have the pleasure of visiting hotels, motels & Inns across British Columbia for the purpose of completing commercial real estate appraisals.

These unique businesses require a unique solution when it comes time to sell. My “Business Exit Solution”  provides a variety of tools to professionally sell a Hotel, Motel or Inn in the most efficient, cost effective way.

The right “going in” price is very important to set a business up for success. Often times buyers don’t have the sales data they need to determine what a fair purchase price is. This service helps ensure buyers are paying fair market value.

Economics and research service that provides analysis and research services on the lodging industry. My work helps clients make strategic decisions, evaluate programs and business alternatives and determine economic and financial contributions.

Sample Northern BC Hotel, Motel & Inn Sale Prices Per Room

Specializing in the hospitality industry allows me to stay up to date on all of the latest trends, transactions, inventory and key performance indicators. Below are some of the latest statistics for the Northern British Columbia hotel, motel & inn industry that will help you develop an estimate of value for your lodging property.

My appraisal will estimate your property’s net income before debt service and depreciation utilizing a forecast of income and expenses. The result will be utilized to estimate its market value via a direct capitalization technique.

Estimate of Market Value = Net Income / Capitalization Rate

Because lodging facilities are income-producing properties that are normally bought and sold on the basis of capitalization of their anticipated stabilized earning power, often the greatest weight is given to the value indicated by the income capitalization approach.

Another way that hotels, motels & inns are commonly valued is the sales comparison approach which uses actual sales of similar properties to provide an indication of the subject property’s value.

The following sample of lodging property sales in the Northern British Columbia region will help you develop a broad value range for your hotel, motel or inn:

The sales outlined above indicate a value range of $27,400 to $112,400 per available room. Several adjustments will be necessary to render these sales prices applicable to your property. The adjustments, which tend to be subjective, diminish the reliability of the sales comparison approach; furthermore, typical hotel investors employ a sales comparison procedure only to establish broad value parameters.

The region known as Northern British Columbia covers the northern half of the province from Highway 16 north to the Yukon border, and includes northwest BC, which is the focus of this report.

The District of Fort St. James has identified the growth of the tourism sector as an economic development opportunity. Pursuant to a one-day workshop session held in March 2007 a Tourism Committee was formed to lead tourism planning and implementation.
