What information does Southeast International need to list my hotel for sale?

Our team will provide you with a checklist of everything we need to deliver a successful result.

How much is my hotel property worth?

Most owners have a good idea of their hotel’s general value. We draw upon our experience in the industry to accurately pinpoint a property’s true value. We work with buyers, sellers, investors, appraisers, and lenders from across the country and around the world. This gives us tremendous insight regarding valuation – insight we pass on to you.

I'm worried that putting my hotel on the market will hurt my business or cause staff members to leave.

Our marketing approach is driven by our sellers’ need for confidentiality. Whereas other agencies openly disclose a property’s precise location, income, and statistical information without requiring any qualifying information – or any information at all – we vet prospective buyers before disclosing these details.

What kind of down payment do I need to buy a hotel?

The answer depends on a variety of factors, including the type of property, your credit history, the property’s performance, and your personal net worth.
