If the property is in bankruptcy, well have to evaluate the deal. We prefer properties near the end stages of the bankruptcy process, so theres some understanding as to the timeline and litigation costs related to the purchase of the property. McElvenny says Sumitomo (N.Y.) is potentially interested in development properties here as well, but they could require more evaluation. Besides this larger practice, we also maintain relationships with foreclosure experts. [We also look at] deals ranging from $1 property management in maryland million to $10 million, so investors looking in this price range are also welcome to contact us, Iwatsuki said.
