Why Pam Golding Lodges & Guesthouses

Value add for Buyers

Our consultants have both a hospitality and financial background and are consequently able to properly advise buyers of a Guesthouse, Lodge or Hotel, adding value in the following areas:

  • Analysis of area occupancy statistics to advise buyers on potential and market related expected incomes
  • Legal compliance and licensing advice to protect buyer investment
  • Assistance with drawing and completing appropriate offer and contracts through our dedicated partners
  • Advice on financing options, the most appropriate way to bring funds into South Africa and legal ownership structure
  • Advice on immigration through our dedicated partners
  • Minimisation of transfer duties or VAT payments by advising on the correct structure in which to purchase

Value add for Sellers

As hospitality specialists we are in an intimately informed position to correctly value a business and its property and conclude a market related sale. We add value to sellers in numerous areas:

  • Financial analysis and business valuation. We correctly position the hospitality business and properties
  • Advice with preparing your business for the sales process including all documents that will be needed. This process is substantially different from residential property sales and requires expert knowledge so that a sale does not fall through
  • Compliance with legal and tax requirements – Capital Gains Tax and Secondary Tax
  • We can market a guesthouse, lodge or hotel to our extensive network in excess of 2,000 hospitality related clients
  • Cooperation with our mother company, Pam Golding Properties, Africa’s largest independent realtor. Tapping into the Group wide referral system (2,000 agents country wide and internationally)
  • Separate hospitality website apart from the listings on the Pam Golding Properties website.

After his Economics study at the Free University of Amsterdam, Peter put to practice his financial expertise in various functions with the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa and Salomon Brothers of London, an American investment bank.

His hospitality experience consists of working for the Marriott Group in Amsterdam and successfully managing a medium sized independent Hotel in the heart of Amsterdam.

Peter is fluent in Dutch, English, German and Afrikaans.

“It is paramount that a Seller receives correct advice about the market value and marketability of their property. It is equally important that a Buyer receives correct advice about the location, size, legalities and earnings of a guesthouse. My drive to bring Buyer and Seller together and make them both happy with the purchase and sale of their guesthouse is the best reward you can get.”
