There are many reasons to sell your hotel property/gastronomy property
The hotel brokers at ASP Global Hotel Brokers receive between 80 and 100 requests a month from interested parties looking to buy hotel or gastronomy properties.There are many good reasons to decide to sell or lease your hotel or gastronomy establishment.
The main reasons for selling or leasing hotels are currently:
- Age-related reasons
- A lack of, or uncertainty concerning a successor
- Personal reasons – such as the end of a relationship, or health problems
- The desire for a change of lifestyle, or changing life aims
- A considerable build-up of necessary renovation works or improvements which is too much to deal with

You can only sell your hotel once – make sure you choose the right partner to do so!
Once you have reached the decision to sell your property, it is imperative that you seek the support of an experienced and professional hotel broker. A normal property broker will be of little help, lacking the expertise, the national and international contracts, and the network and sales channels required to market your property professionally and in the appropriate channels. You are not merely trying to sell a property, but an economically viable business which prospective buyers are not likely to buy because it looks beautiful or appealing but rather because they need to be able to make a living, or want to make a profit from it. This is where our professional hotel brokers step in – they will illustrate to prospective buyers that they can be successful and earn money with your hotel! They will provide prospective buyers with an understanding of your business, offer help organising the financial side of the purchase and accompany both you and the buyer right up until the actual handover following the exchange of contracts.
