Avison Young Hospitality Group Announces January 2018 ClosingsFebruary 12, 2018
ATLANTA – February 12, 2018 – The Avison Young Hospitality Group announced today that it has brokered the transaction of six hotels in January. The hotels included a full-service Marriott, a Courtyard by Marriott, two Marriott Fairfield Inns, one Red Roof Inn and one Comfort Inn. The hotels were located in Chicago, Washington, D.C., El Paso, Texas, High Point and Greensboro, N.C., and Columbus, Ga.
Avison Young Hospitality Brokers involved in these sales were Brad Sinclair, Andy Broad, Rick George, Wendy Blissett, Rex Cagle, Michael Bernath, Thierry Roch and John James.
“Our market advice to sellers for the last eight months has been to sell now or expect to hold for another five to six years” said Keith Thompson, principal at Avison Young. “Given that the Dow had another one thousand point drop yesterday makes the current investment market seem potentially frothy.”
