Commercial, Retail and Industrial Investment Sales and Acquisitions
For investors looking to buy or sell investment-grade properties or portfolios, our national brokerage team has the experience and knowledge to offer expert assistance. Swindon will help you identify the most suitable opportunities in the market to match your short, medium or long-term property investment requirements. Similarly, we work with investors who are looking for solutions to help them enter the property market, or investors that want to divest assets or portfolios.
Additionally, we offer deal structuring, reliable investor intelligence and strategic marketing for investors considering the sale of a single asset or a large portfolio.
Our clients benefit from our extensive client database, which includes global investors, allowing us to showcase properties to a sizeable and diverse list of attractive buyers.
Swindon also advises owners who are looking to release poor performing investments or simply to divest from an asset or a market to seize gains. We can guide you on the best strategies to help you achieve a maximum return on your property or portfolio and minimise your transaction risk.
Due Diligence on Acquisitions and Disposals
In today's climate of ever-changing commercial property conditions, clients need expert advice and current data to make intelligent business decisions about their investments and portfolios.
If you are looking to transact in the property market, Swindon will guide you using extensive due diligence reporting and real-time market data, supported by our on-the-ground professionals who understand every aspect of property investment in their respective areas and markets.
Marketing and Repositioning Strategies
With the objective of making vacancies highly visible and accessible, Swindon offers successful multi-channel advertising, targeting tenants through a variety of media channels and professional networks.
Most of our preferred platforms interface directly with our website and computer systems. Our up-to-date, extensive client database allows us to use email marketing and bulk SMS communication as a powerful and effective tactic to connect the fitting tenant to a suitable property.
Swindon's targeted marketing ensures that properties are quickly and effectively leased to the right tenant, achieving an effective tenant mix.
When it comes to brand and market repositioning of property based on current trends and tenant requirements, our marketing team can compile rebranding suggestions required to attract the most suitable tenants.
Leasing Plans and Strategy
Swindon's leasing plans provide strategic expertise to commercial property owners and investors, working to maximise asset awareness, stabilise occupancy through leasing and tenant retention, for the achievement of optimal rental rates and to enhance investment value.
Swindon recommends effective strategies to lease the vacancies, i.e. sub division, renovation and redevelopment, rental adjustment etc. and where applicable additional marketing campaigns. Furthermore, we share the progress of associated letting campaigns.
Tenant Retention
Swindon assists by maintaining low vacancy rates with sound tenant profiling. Because we know that retaining tenants is of paramount importance, our management team provides and maintains the programs and services that will keep tenants happy and encourage them to remain in the building.
At a minimum, our retention plans identify tenants, the services and amenities to be provided, and indicate a method to measure success. The design and creation of the plan is a joint effort and solicits input from the owner, asset manager, leasing broker, marketing, and building management team. Our retention plans formalise defined objectives and measurable goals that are specific for each property or tenant.
Through regularly scheduled meetings with tenants, tracked in the tenant profiles, we provide an opportunity for tenants to discuss their satisfaction with or concerns about building services. The feedback from these meetings provide us with the information necessary to make changes that will help to retain the tenant.
Our retention strategy is made up of the following:
  • Retention goal
  • Tenant profile
  • Handover procedures
  • Contractor activity
  • Tenant satisfaction survey
  • Tenant communication
  • Services and amenities
  • Exit interviews and hand-back procedures
