HOUSTON – Deal Sikes & Associates, a Houston real estate valuation firm, completed estate portfolio evaluations involving over $1 billion in real estate for high net-worth families in 2014.
The portfolios, owned by several affluent Texas families, included a variety of properties comprised of raw land, commercial buildings, urban tracts, multifamily, hotels and various residences.
“Deal Sikes has provided valuation services to a number of prominent Texas families for estate tax planning purposes and anticipated the future sales of these large real estate portfolios,” says Matthew Deal, principal.
“An important part of the process of evaluating the estate portfolio is considering which assets have exceptional potential to appreciate in value,” says Mark Sikes, principal. “Many of the investment properties in these portfolios are in the path of significant growth in suburban areas or located near evolving urban pockets of gentrification.”
