The Ehmer Group Structures Sale of the Wingate – Cordova, Tennessee

The Ehmer Group, a San Francisco-based member of Hotel Brokers International, announces the successful marketing and sale of the Wingate by Wyndham located at 2700 North Germantown Parkway in Cordova, Tennessee. The Hotel sold for $6,080,000. The new owner has plans to convert the Hotel to a Country Inn & Suites by Carlson. The Hotel PIP will reflect recently completed updates including new FF&E throughout. Richard Ehmer, President of The Ehmer Group, negotiated the sale. The Hotel was listed in cooperation with Huff, Niehaus & Associates, Inc., a licensed Tennessee broker.

The Wingate Cordova is a three-story, 100-guestroom, select-service hotel that sits on a 2.13 acres lot with good visibility from Interstate 40. The Hotel location is only 16 miles from downtown Memphis and the south main historic district and less than 20 miles from the Memphis International Airport. The Memphis market is the most heavily populated metropolitan area in Tennessee and draws more than 8 million tourists every year. The Hotel has enjoyed increasing ADR, occupancy and RevPAR over the past two years and there remains plenty of room for the asset to grow and continue to increase in gross revenue.

“This acquisition presents the new owner with the opportunity to acquire a newly updated hotel that has seen substantial improvements in Occupancy, ADR and RevPAR over the last three years, a trend that will likely continue into the foreseeable future. Memphis is a strong lodging market and all key performance indicators are up over 2014 numbers and trending positive in all expert forecasts. The Ehmer Group is honored to serve our clients and assist them in achieving their investment goals,” said Mr. Ehmer.
