Capital Markets

Understanding our clients aims

We provide strategic real estate investment advice to both the public and private sectors, the third sector and housing associations. This has given us an excellent insight into the differing aims and objectives of each sector. We understand the public sector must consider numerous sensitivities, risks and local circumstances when seeking to dispose of or acquire real estate.

Asset Selection

We offer our public-sector clients reasoned advice, tailored to their objectives and supported with clear evidence, in the identification of suitable buildings to sell or acquire. If a decision has been made to raise capital from an existing estate or portfolio, it is of the utmost importance the right assets are chosen, not only to maximise capital receipts, but to ensure the performance of the portfolio is not adversely affected. The impact of an asset sale must be considered in the short, medium and long term.

Bespoke Marketing

We understand that every asset sale is different. The type of asset, the location, age, use class and occupier profile of a building will greatly influence what category of purchaser will be interested in the property. In order to secure best price in line with your disposal timescales, the correct method of sale and the most appropriate marketing strategy needs to be employed.

We have dealt with the sale of investment property covering most use classes, from residential and mixed-use blocks, commercial investments, care homes and leisure property. We’ll plan a bespoke marketing strategy, employing our thorough understanding of the investment market, to target the most relevant purchasers. We advise on and carryout widescale marketing campaigns or more discreet targeted approaches, depending on what might be most appropriate to achieve best value.

Acquisition services

Our acquisition service is designed to find your organisation the most suitable investment asset. We will seek out and identify all relevant premises within the parameters of your requirements to ensure you acquire the most suitable assets within agreed timescales.

Our experienced teams of Agency Surveyors will find the most suitable property for you and negotiate the deal on your behalf. They will then act as project managers overseeing the acquisition process and liaising when required with all relevant parties, which may include the vendor and their agents, solicitors, building surveyors, planners and fit out companies. This will ensure the transaction completes promptly and efficiently reducing the risk of losing the asset and incurring unnecessary costs.
