New Blog – Nov. 19


Welcome to our blog! We’ll break down industry data, offer profitability tips and share expert advice to benefit hotel owners and operators alike.

We’re wrapping up our Crown Jewels video series with our sixth and final step involved in boosting profitability, increasing Net Asset Value (NAV). To get started, a property valuation or Broker Opinion of Value (BOV) should be performed annually. This gives an analysis of what’s happening in the broader transactional market and assesses the property value relative to the market.

It’s also important to research trends that might impact the transaction market. A quick search of Costar will offer a list of other properties that have transacted within the market and reveal how the market is pricing deals along with the cap rates involved.

And remember, it’s important to remain vigilant. Evaluate the hotel’s current position within that market every year, as the hotel market is dynamic and constantly changing. You should always be prepared to sell even if you’re not planning to place the property on the market. This will help ensure your hotel is always in a strong competitive position.

Take a look at the video below for more tips on increasing Net Asset Value.

We’ve now shared with you our six Crown Jewels! If you follow these steps, increasing profitability is well within reach.
