Due Diligence 2019-08-21T15:30:23+00:00



Murow|CM provides Feasibility (Due Diligence) services on a variety of projects for major Public & Private Residential Builders & Developers, Commercial & Industrial Builders & Developers, Equity & Debt Firms, Oil Companies, Land Owners, etc. We leverage our over four decades of experience & expertise to identify exposures and develop creative, efficient, and cost effective solutions to quickly provide the decision makers with the necessary information to make informed “Go/No Go” decisions on the project being analyzed.

The Gate System Approach

We implement a Gate System methodology that analyzes complex real estate development projects from the initial underwriting through the course of entitlement and development. The key function of this system is to provide our clients the ability to analyze prospective projects in an efficient and incremental manner. This allows our clients to limit their capital outlay and diligently work through the time constraints of the due diligence period. If at Gate 1 (Initial Feasibility) the economics or other factors identify fatal flaws, the decision making can be quick and efficient. If the 1st Gate is passed, then the same process goes with the upcoming gates as we move through the discovery and vetting process.

Gate System  (Note: all Feasibility Gates include Risk Analyses & Recommended Actions)

  • Gate 1 – Initial Feasibility
  • Gate 2 – Assumption Vetting Phase
  • Gate 3 – Engagement of the Project Consultant Team
