Looking for new premises? Now is certainly the time for careful planning and budgeting. To save time, wouldn’t it be great to start each enquiry with a crystal-clear description of your needs? If you could say with absolute certainty, “These are my property requirements…” , list exactly the location you want, any special features, as well as the sqm you’ll need in the short-term, medium-term and long-term, and your budget… then let your agent find your property while you get back to the business that, now more than ever, needs your daily attention?
Introducing My Property Requirements/Ma recherche immobilière
RealCorp’s new My Property Requirements online tool, available in English and French, enables you to do just that! Using this tool, you can speed up your interaction with our agents and be confident that they understand exactly what you’re looking for.
How agents help you find property
When looking online for new premises, most people start with Property Searches on agency websites. That’s a logical first step to gain a broad idea of what’s on offer in the areas that interest you. And it may even turn up some listings that appear to meet your criteria. But if you’ve ever done this before, you know that’s only the beginning of the story!
Your next step is to contact the agency behind the listing. They’ll listen to your criteria and help you understand whether the listing you saw is a good match. Their local knowledge will also enable them to offer you alternatives. Then, they’ll help you narrow the options to a shortlist, arrange viewings of the shortlisted properties, and guide you to a decision. Finally, they’ll help you negotiate a contract that serves your needs now and in the foreseeable future.
But everyone’s real estate needs are different
The process is simple to state. In reality, it requires much time, skill, and market knowledge, because everyone’s needs are different. It’s not only the physical description of the property — the location and the amount and types of space — but also the contract terms, including cost per square metre, service charges and dates.
Even if you’ve searched for a property before, your needs now differ from the last time you did it. And if your company is a start-up, or you’re finding new premises for the first time, or you don’t know Luxembourg, it might be hard to articulate exactly what you need.
Sometimes you don’t even know what to ask…
And what about planning for the future? You may know how many workstations you need today, but what about next year, or in five years’ time?
Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know, and you certainly don’t have all the answers, so establishing a match is not as simple as it sounds, even for an experienced agent.
If only you could empower yourself with enough knowledge to walk confidently into that first conversation!
