The Nova Scotia Tourism Agency posted a request for proposals this morning, May 7, for real estate broker services for the sale of both Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa and the Liscomb Lodge Resort.

“TNS’s objective is to hire a real estate broker firm with strong and proven hotel and resort expertise to assist in divesting the province’s interests in the ongoing ownership, operation and management of the two resorts either collectively or separately,” says to the RFP. [The full RFP is posted on NS Tenders.]

The tenders are due May 22, the project of selling the resorts would preferably start June 8 and wrap up Aug. 17.

The real estate firm would help the province set a recommended sales value, develop and execute a marketing plan, assist in negotiations, up to but not including the final negotiations and closing of the sale.

The province last tried, unsuccessfully, to sell the properties back in 2012.

The Digby Pines property includes the main lodge with 85 guestrooms, 31 cottages, an 18-hole golf course designed by Stanley Thompson, an outdoor in-ground heated swimming pool, staff residences and maintenance buildings.

The Liscomb Lodge and Conference Centre includes the main lodge with 30 guestrooms, 17 chalets and 5 cottages, a marina, staff residences and maintenance buildings.
