A Goal Without a Plan is Just a Wish

Good results come from planning ahead, and that's just what Aegon did with this role in Crawley.

When you are selling an asset, we have all learned that presenting it in the best possible light means you achieve a realistic price in a swift timeframe, as the serious buyers are filtered out.

We teamed up with Aegon to do just that, as they addressed the assets that they may be looking to move on from post-pandemic. Despite what looked simple, an estate of industrial units with shared yards, access and various service runs near a main road had its complexity.

How did we help?

The Vantage team handled the role from inception, clearing investigations such as drainage, roof surveys and environmental surveys.

We raised several questions. But, rather than just state they exist, we found answers which painted a fair picture, avoiding confusion which results in delay and often a lower price achieved.

The team were also called upon to measure the site and, as we see on nearly 80% of roles, a circa 10% variance was found to that of the retained site measurements inherited by the client.

Never forget the importance of a good set of plans and measure.
