Commercial Sales

Commercial Property Sales and Purchase

Sworders has an established and active commercial department dealing with a full range of premises from small, low key storage to high quality office and large scale industrial, warehouse and multi-use developments. We have a proven record of delivering an excellent service to both landlords and tenants.

Sales

We provide a holistic approach when selling property and our experience in both the sale and purchase of property ensures the best approach and achieves optimum results.

Using both local and regional knowledge, we provide advice on selling properties across the full spectrum, including country houses, cottages, town houses, new developments, commercial property, development sites, farms and country estates.

Development Appraisal and Adding Value

When assessing a property for sale we always explore opportunities to add value and our planning and architectural team will assist in assessing the potential of each location.  It may be possible to improve the value of a property prior to a sale; this might be through planning, re-design or a different approach to the sale, such as offering the site in lots or advice on the timing. The Sworders’ team work closely together, drawing on the experience and expertise of the relevant professional to achieve the best results.

Sale of Development Land

We have years of experience in the sale of large housing schemes to developers and house builders. As an independent firm with a policy not to take instructions from house builders to sell the finished dwellings or commercial units, we are able to provide impartial advice that is entirely in the interests of the landowner. We provide in-house advice and services across the whole process – from making representations to the local authority, advising on promotion agreements and progressing planning applications right through to the sale of the consented site.

Marketing

For every property a marketing strategy is required and we take a proactive approach, going far beyond merely adding the property to website portals. Our sales’ strategy, using high quality particulars, bespoke advertisements and direct marketing, ensure that clients can be certain that their property will be exposed fully to the market.

 Points to Consider when Selling a Property:

  • Opportunities to add value and improve chances of sale
  • Presentation of property
  • Guide or asking price
  • Sales and marketing strategy
  • Internet presence through various portals
  • Direct marketing
  • Property particulars
  • Private treaty
  • Auction
  • Formal tender process
  • Preparation and efficiency of sale transfer

 Purchasing a Property

We provide advice to clients for a wide range of purchases, from small property to significant farm and estate portfolios. This can include property search, asset advice, valuation and negotiations.
