The importance of understanding occupier demand and requirements is becoming evermore vital in the acquisition and disposal of commercial retail investments. The ability to see how any investment can be improved by proactive asset management is built-in the foundation of knowing and understanding the occupier’s requirements and aspirations. Merely valuing an income stream over a given term is no longer acceptable.
At Burns Property Consultants we pride ourselves in knowing these requirements and have built long-standing relationships with retailers and developed mutual trust that enables us to quickly and accurately assess any investment potential. Because of this, we are increasingly asked to advise on a variety of retail investments from shopping centers to individual high street stores and of late, retail warehouse investments.
