“Whether or not you choose to market your condo association with us, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or to simply get educated on the process.”

Apartment buildings have seen their rents sky rocket over the last five years and with that so have the prices of those apartment buildings.  Individual condo units on the other hand have not seen the same price growth.  To capitalize on that price difference, developers and investors have been reaching out to condo associations to buy each individual unit in a bulk purchase so they can then “deconvert” the building back to apartments.  In doing that, they have found that they can pay each condo unit owner a substantial premium for their  individual unit while still achieving the returns they need to justify the investment.
We can help you maximize that premium for the condo owners.  In addition to being the Chicago area market leader in apartment building sales, our team at CBRE has successfully  brokered the sale of the largest and most high profile condo deconversions in the city to date.  We have found that on the condo deconversion deals we’ve brokered, we have been able to achieve substantially better pricing and terms for the condo association, over and above what they received in their unsolicited offers from developers and investors.
CBRE is an international brokerage firm with tremendous resources and local market expertise. We have deep relationships with the investors who are most qualified to purchase your condo building (quite often out-of-state investors) and we can represent your condo association by running a competitive marketing process to drive the most aggressive pricing possible,  as  well  as  help  you  navigate  the  internal  association  process  and  communication  with  condo  owners.  These  are  complicated  transactions,  and  we  can  help  you  maintain leverage with the ultimate buyer throughout the process to get to a successful closing that meets the unique needs of your association.
