Industrial sales and lettings
We provide advice, and acquire and sell commercial property investments for clients seeking industrial, logistics and warehousing space, from prime single-lets to comprehensive multi-tenanted industrial park investments.
KWB’s strong portfolio features commercial properties in key industrial areas within the West Midlands, such as Birmingham, Redditch, Aldridge, Walsall and the Black Country. We bring the experience and knowledge necessary to make full use of property opportunities in the region – be it opportunities within your existing portfolio or acquisition.
Investing in industrial property
Our expertise in property investment derives from our ability to look beyond the boundary of a property and identify off-market opportunities. We can advise on the following property investment areas:
- Property sales and acquisition
- Reports on emerging industrial property trends
- Property asset management opportunities to maximise returns and minimise risk
- Generation of capital through sale and leaseback
- Purchase strategy
- Property re-branding/market re-positioning
Marketing your industrial space
Behind every successful industrial unit sale, development or letting is a comprehensive and integrated marketing plan.
A detailed marketing plan is an essential key element to selling industrial property and we pride ourselves on the detailed marketing plans that we tailor to each project. We focus on the end user occupier profile for the property and utilise our own organic enquiry database, bespoke targeted occupier databases with both online and offline marketing techniques to target a compelling message to key decision makers.
Leasehold and freehold disposals
We source and deliver prime industrial space, both large and small, to a diverse mix of UK and global businesses. We take a proactive approach to securing occupiers for your space, whilst giving rigorous consideration to live enquiries within the marketplace. We also seek to create fresh opportunities, conducting well-structured negotiations to galvanise the interest of off-market occupiers.
Our extensive, up-to-date understanding of occupier trends and requirements informs us on how best to bring your property to people’s attention. When bringing properties to market, we consider the positioning of the property, marketing materials, photography and if any refurbishments may make a significant impact on a property’s appeal – in order to secure an occupier.
When managing a client’s property portfolio, we recognise all facets of maintaining it. We understand the importance of ‘time sensitive’ matters, and their impact on your top line – such as the need for efficient, speedy letting of vacant industrial space.
KWB’s strength lies in investment and research – through this we have accrued vast experience in identifying and developing opportunities. Be it a major industrial refurbishment, a redevelopment, a potential business park or industrial estate, we have provided expert advice and acquired land and buildings on behalf of institutions, developers and property companies.
The prompt returns we achieve in this area are derived from proactively investigating potential occupiers and seeking space within the West Midlands marketplace. We regularly monitor requirements for large and small industrial users, throughout the region, allowing us to provide invaluable advice to developers, in respect of trends and rental expectancy.
