The Overseas Real Estate Investment Method
After several years of real estate activities in Europe, we have developed a unique work method for real estate investments overseas. We’ve formulated a four-step process that increases the chances of finding a winning deal.
Step One – We are proud of our rigorous screening process, carried out by three expert analysts in our Analysis department. We conduct a due diligence audit for every developer, and examine his or her business experience and professional background. A good deal is made by the time of the purchase – so this is a critical stage for the deal’s success. Our goal is to always find investment opportunities offered at 20% to 30% below market prices.
Step two – We conduct in-depth examination of the project’s business plan, verify costs and analyze possible faults and flaws. Only investments that pass all of our rigorous selection criteria are submitted for the approval of the Investment Committee. And it is only after this initial screening process that we offer properties to our investors. We also make sure that there are substantial collateral and sureties for each investment – direct ownership of the property by each investor in proportion to his/her investment, in addition to establishing a separate partnership for each and every investment. All the information is presented with full transparency to our investors, who receive all the certificates confirming their ownership of the company that holds the property.
Step Three – In order to make money in the real estate world, returns on the investment must be assured over time. Therefore, we give a great deal of weight to the identity of the tenants renting the property, to make sure that the deal will yield maximum income – with a minimum of operational costs. We review all tenant contracts and monitor tenant satisfaction and their assorted requests. Meanwhile, we also examine whether it is possible to raise the rent, as well as options for renovating and dividing large apartments. It is important to always keep in mind that there is actually a relationship with every tenant, and it should be preserved – this is key to a long-term tenant.
Step Four – Investing in real estate overseas is a long-term relationship. With you live in Israel, and your investment is literally over the sea, you need a high-quality management company and a trustworthy, professional team that you can count to yield high returns on your investment over time. A good deal is not enough – you need a quality partner to accompany you throughout, and give you the comprehensive support system you need for the entire transaction.
We founded Nadlan Germany on the basis of these principles. We believe that success is a function of hard work, honesty as well as luck. We are very dedicated to our clients and appreciate the trust they put in us. In return, we offer them full transparency, high availability and a genuine desire to build a healthy long-term relationship.
Rigorous screening process
A rigorous and meticulous screening process for each and every property. We examine and analyze thousands of properties each year, and from among them select only a handful of genuine investment opportunities.
Thorough examination of the property's value
Through a comprehensive examination of property prices on the same street that is based on taxation data, we ascertain that the price we were offered is the market price and that there is a basis for negotiating. In addition, we obtain appraisals signed by a certified local appraiser.
All of the investors' money is deposited directly into a dedicated trust account managed by an Israeli lawyer, in accordance with the provisions of the trusteeship order and subject to an agreement only, so your money is 100% secure and protected.
Predefined management agreement
The management agreement is prepared for investors in advance, in order to avoid surprises along the way. The management company undertakes to manage the property for a minimum of 36 months. The agreement includes a clause allowing the buyer to unilaterally terminate the contract at his/her sole discretion.
100% land registration
Full listing of the property at the land registry in the buyer's name from date of purchase. This is our recommendation for all real estate investments in Germany.
Title Company and Insurance
Legal examination of the property to ensure that the property is free of liens, mortgages and debts. You can purchase the property with no worries.
Comprehensive Due Diligence
Full due diligence examination of the property / project before any investment. This includes rental agreements, inspection of the property by an engineer, "energy utilization" examination (mandatory in Germany), history of purchases and sales in the area, and bank opinion. In short - a comprehensive 360 inspection of the property.
Current data report
Generating a quarterly investor's report for each investor with the full status and information. We also issue an annual report accompanied by a German accountant. We have extensive knowledge of international taxation so that you will pay less taxes and earn more.
Signing of the transaction with an Israeli law firm
Conducting and signing the transaction with an Israeli law firm serving as trustees. The process is accompanied throughout by an Israeli-German lawyer based in Tel Aviv, so that there is maximum availability in the case of any question and concern. We also work with a German notary who accompanies the process.
