ASP Expert Broker golf courses, marinas, adventure parks, sports parks, spa's

The international market leading expert brokers for the sale of leisure and sports properties Auer, Springer & Partner (ASP Global Hotel Brokers) have been one of the most important ports of call for the owners of ski resorts, golf courses, marinas, recreational, amusement and theme parks, thermals baths, famous visitor attractions, hunting grounds and similar leisure facilities since 1983. Over 30 years of experience in all tourism sectors mean we guarantee a professional and discrete approach. An extraordinary network of investors, banks, prospective buyers, registered customers, and an extensive international sales and marketing network for leisure and sports properties provide ideal conditions for selling your property.

ASP Global Hotel Brokers is always on the look out for golf courses, spas, marinas and recreational parks to sell

ASP Global Hotel Brokers currently has approximately 725 hotels, 80 palaces, 120 luxury properties and around 45 leisure and sport properties (golf courses, marinas, leisure parks, visitor and tourist attractions) exclusively available for sale; in all sizes, categories, price ranges and in more than 50 countries. Nevertheless, we have many prospective buyers who are still looking for leisure properties because in many regions there are no suitable ski resorts, golf courses, recreational parks, spas, etc. available for sale or lease. This applies in particular to many regions of Germany, Switzerland, Austria, northern Italy, southern France, but also to the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Great Britain and France.

We are looking for well-positioned golf courses and complexes for sale across Europe

We have a number of travel corporations, environmentally concerned strategic investors, private trusts and home offices, private investors, professional golf course operators, and medium-sized and international companies who are increasingly looking for investment opportunities in all kinds of leisure and sports facilities with close links to the natural environment and which are well-positioned to attract tourists. It is no great secret that if golf courses and golf clubs are to generate a profit they need to be managed extremely professionally. It makes sense then for owners of several golf clubs in a region to spread the costs of expensive technical equipment between these clubs.

There is particularly high demand for well-positioned golf clubs / golf courses. When it comes to gold courses most of our registered customers are looking first and foremost for somewhere large and close to a large city. Major investors are interested in buying „HIDEAWAYS“; the leading, largest and most well-known golf courses /golf clubs across Europe and America. The demand for good golf clubs amongst ASP’s registered prospective buyers currently drastically exceeds supply. International and national investors are particularly on the look out for golf clubs in large renowned golf regions, golf resorts and golf courses in Austria, Germany, northern Italy, Switzerland, France, Spain, Hungary, Turkey, Tunisia and Portugal.

ASP is looking for spas, marinas, zoos, recreational and natural parks, and tourist attractions to sell

The expert brokers at ASP (Auer, Springer & Partner) are also looking for appealing and touristic leisure and sports properties throughout Europe. Demand for these properties is ever on the increase and there is simply not enough supply to meet demand in this sector.

ASP has been successfully involved in the consultation, development and sale of spas, marinas, recreational and amusement parks, zoos and natural parks, and other tourist attractions on an international level for over thirty years now. Travel corporations, environmentally concerned strategic investors, private trusts and home offices, private investors, professional golf course operators, medium-sized and international companies are increasingly looking for investment opportunities in leisure and sports facilities in these sectors which have close links to the natural environment and are well-positioned to attract tourists.

How do the expert brokers for leisure and sports real estate at ASPI AG work?

To put it briefly: in a low key, discreet and extremely focused manner. Selling entire leisure and sports properties, or even just shares in them is always a very sensitive and discreet matter. The expert brokers for leisure real estate at ASP are aware of this fact. It is precisely this that proves such a challenge when it comes to professionally marketing spas, marinas, recreational parks, major tourist attractions, etc. on an internationally stage. Finding a balance between disclosing enough information to arouse the target group’s interest whilst ensuring the identity of the leisure or sports property remains as anonymous as possible.

We always start off by contacting eligible, renowned, professional investors in the relevant leisure sector personally. Members of this target group already operate one or several sports or leisure facilities and have previously expressed an interest in expanding or making new acquisitions. We arrange private meetings or meetings in small groups with the board or owners of these corporations to ascertain interest levels and explore the available options.

The next step is to contact registered investors and prospective buyers in similar branches. This includes select tourism corporations, major hotel operators, leisure and sports property and theme park operators, etc. These meetings are also discreet and confidential and by presenting benchmarks ASP can ascertain interest levels and explore the available options.

The ski resort brokers at ASP will then go on to target strategic investors, associations for nature conservation, private trusts, funds, insurance providers, banks, industry corporations and select private individuals who have previously registered an interest in buying golf clubs, spas, leisure parks, tourist attractions or larger areas of land in the respective region, or something similar with ASP. The expert brokers at ASP and the management of ASPI AG try to develop scenarios of how best to market the investment, how the respective leisure property could be most successful and most importantly to present the investor with projected profits.

At the same time we will launch a worldwide silent marketing campaign for the leisure property in question aimed at investors, private trusts and wealthy individuals from outside the industry for whom such an involvement could be worthwhile and who also have the necessary capital. These investors are not usually looking to manage a ski resort themselves but are interested in financial participation with a guaranteed return on investment. The expert brokers at ASPI AG are used to the fact that Russian and Ukrainian oligarchies, Asian investors and American corporations inevitably form part of this group and negotiating with them is part and parcel of everyday business.
