If you are considering selling your winery, we can help!
We begin by helping you determine what price to list your vineyard, engage consultants to evaluate soil and grapes, review and advise on entity structuring and legal issues, and assist you with determining tax consequences and other financial considerations regarding your sale.
When the time comes to sell, we list the property for sale, place it on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) so that all Realtors know your property is avaiable, list your property on commercial property websites such as Loopnet and CoStar to expose your property to commerial property brokers and buyers, and send information about your property to our extensive list of wine industry contacts generated over the past five decades in the wine business and through our extensive database of owners and operators that we have cultivated through industry trade organizations.
We draft purchase and sale agreements, prepare disclosures, manage escrows, assist with loan payoffs, and we manage the exchange process and documentation if you decide to complete a 1031 exchange to defer taxes on any gains.
After selling your property, we can help you purchase replacement properties to defer taxes. We have extensive experience representing buyers in commercial property transactions, including retail, net-lease (single tenant buildings leased to major national retailers), apartments and multifamily properties, offices, and industrial buildings. We will help you through each and every step of the process, evaluating potential properties, contracting to purchase your selected properties, assisting with the preparation of 1031 exchange paperwork and advising you on how to manage your 1031 exchange, coordinating due diligence and underwriting, reviewing title and land use issues, environmental review, and the closing.
