Real estate services to help you navigate this complex market

The commercial property and real estate industry has undergone rapid changes in recent years. With a difficult market, tight credit, evolving accounting standards and shifting tax concerns, these are challenging times for all companies in this sector.

Following the Covid-19 pandemic, a change in buyer preferences, remote working, migration and shifting demographics irrevocably altered the industry. Added to this are the challenges of fluctuating interest rates and an increased importance on ESG and sustainability factors in all aspects of the industry.

Amid these ever changing market conditions, the RSM team understand the challenges, needs and priorities to help you manoeuver the complex real estate environment. Our team of industry experts has extensive experience in the delivery of audit, tax and consulting services across the real estate and property sector, for both local and international investors.

Our clients include property developers, bodies corporate, real estate funds, construction companies and architects.

RSM can assist organisations in the real estate and construction industries to navigate these unique challenges:

Real estate markets can be highly volatile, influenced by economic cycles, geopolitical events and changing consumer preferences. Fluctuations in demand and supply can significantly impact property values and investment returns. RSM can assist organisations to anticipate market trends, mitigate risks, and identify investment opportunities.

The real estate industry is heavily regulated and subject to numerous laws and regulations. Changes in zoning laws, building codes, tax policies and environmental regulations can affect property development, financing and operations. RSM’s team of professionals can help you to remain compliant with regulatory requirements, optimise your tax position and navigate complex legal frameworks.

Like many other industries, the real estate sector is undergoing rapid technological transformation, with innovations such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and blockchain reshaping how properties are bought, sold and managed. RSM’s technology experts can assist in the adoption of emerging technologies to streamline processes, enhance customer experiences and gain a competitive edge in the market.

There is increasing pressure on companies in this sector to adopt green building practices and reduce carbon footprints. RSM’s ESG experts can help assess your environmental impacts and guide you to implement sustainable strategies.

Access to capital is essential for real estate development and investment. However, securing financing from traditional lenders or attracting investors can be challenging. We can guide you to develop comprehensive financing strategies and structure deals to maximise returns for investors.

With the increased reliance on digital technologies for property management, transaction processing and customer interactions, organisations have become more susceptible to cybersecurity threats such as data breaches, ransomware attacks and identity theft. RSM can conduct cybersecurity assessments and implement robust controls to safeguard sensitive information and protect against cyber threats.
