Real Estate

Real Estate comprises real estate consulting, financial advisory and transaction support services.

RE Portfolio transformation

Deloitte advises property owners on their RE strategy and assist in the necessary operational transformation. Based on the corporate strategy, we identify the priorities within a portfolio and define the actions to be taken in order to implement the transformation. Within this process, various types of actions are considered: expansion, diversification, integration, cost optimization, portfolio optimization, etc. In case of a (re)development project we perform feasibility studies.

RE Workplace advisory

We aim to translate operating models and business needs into workplace advisory where we consider the client’s network and footprint optimization. Additionally, our team of experts defines and implements new ways of working based on the most recent, innovative studies regarding corporate real estate. Our team tackles a variety of challenges for our client including: lease advisory (lease renegotiation), procurement advisory, workspace design, PMO for the execution of a move and PMO for the follow-up of the construction. Over the years, our team has also become an expert in sale and lease back operations followed by a restructuring process of the client’s offices.

Corporate strategy for RE and construction players

Our team has the right skills and knowledge to assist RE and construction players in the definition and implementation of the right corporate strategy. This includes process optimization, IT developments, organizational transformation, strategy to create recurring revenues, business modelling, etc.


RE Transactions and investments

We support our client in numerous types of transactions or investments, providing them from financial, strategic, legal and tax advice in collaboration with our colleague-experts within Deloitte. The transactions and/or investments include M&A, IPO’s or LBB’s for builders, contractors, developers, real estate funds, etc. Furthermore, we assist our client in debt and equity raises from an initial analysis up to the attraction of the capital.

RE Valuation, market analysis and development advisory

Our real estate team performs both recurring portfolio valuations as one-off valuations (of which some are in support to audit, TS and tax). We use one or more valuation methods depending on the characteristics of our clients portfolio / assets: comparison method, investment method, cost method, profit method, and residual value. For (re)development projects we aim to define the underlying value by completing a development plan and timeline in cooperation with the client and make use of our market expertise to perform the correct valuation of the asset considering all its financial parameters.

RE Due diligence

We have a team of highly experienced due diligence experts focusing on the real estate market, who can work in an integrated multidisciplinary way, covering all aspects that matter when acquiring or divesting real estate assets, including financial, tax, legal and valuation aspects. The team members who would be assisting you in your project have many years of experience in vendor and acquisition due diligence in the real estate market.
