Commercial Property Acquisition

At Westbridge Funds Management, a key component of our funds management service is commercial property acquisition.

We draw upon our extensive industry knowledge and proven research methodologies to buy commercial property in Perth and throughout Australia, which is likely to generate high returns for our investors.

Buying commercial real estate requires meticulous research, in-depth industry knowledge and advanced contractual negotiation. This is why, at Westbridge, we have a specialist commercial property acquisition team to navigate the complexities of buying commercial property. Our core aim is to secure premium assets that will offer regular returns and capital growth potential.

The First Step to Owning a Superior Investment is Superior Buying

At Westbridge, our philosophy is that the first step to owning a superior investment is superior buying.

When buying a commercial property to rent out – be it an industrial premises, retail store, or office building – the principle is the same: smart purchasing is key to securing a high-quality asset which will deliver a strong return.

The Property Acquisition Process

Backed by a superior knowledge of market trends, our acquisitions team apply a highly strategic approach to the purchase of any property. We conduct detailed analysis and due diligence based on a comprehensive set of investment criteria.

Our strategy involves focusing on cash flow and potential capital growth, while also reducing investment risk – such as lost income from leasing vacancies. This is coupled with our strong contract negotiation experience.

1. The Research

At Westbridge, our role is to gain a thorough understanding of the market and the property itself, without prior assumptions, and to ensure that all feasible options are considered.

Our specialist commercial real estate buyer’s agents will critique each property against a staunch set of investment criteria, including:

  • Location
  • Market trends
  • Rental yield
  • Demographics
  • Rental vacancy
  • Local market demand and projection
  • Tenancy options & security
  • Value-add opportunities
  • Development potential
  • Zoning and title types
  • Conservative debt gearing

We will conduct a full audit of commercial properties for sale, as well as off-market properties.

2. Property Shortlisting

After meticulous research and analysis, we will shortlist potential investment opportunities which align with our investment principles.

Our core aim is to secure investments that show the highest potential of producing strong results.

3. Negotiation

As professional commercial property buyer’s agents, we are expert negotiators, working exclusively on behalf of our fund investors.

There are a range of aspects to consider throughout the negotiation process with both the vendors and tenants, including:

  • Market value
  • Capital contributions
  • Lease term & break options
  • Service charge responsibilities
  • Fit-out
  • Break options
  • Rent-free periods & tenant incentives
  • Development & renovation opportunities
  • Landlord services
  • Alienation provisions
  • Yielding up provisions
  • Deposit requirements

4. Financing

Our extensive knowledge of the lending market enables us to identify loan solutions that meet the unique requirements of the investment fund.

Furthermore, we have long-standing relationships with a range of lenders, which allow us access to better loan structures and interest rates. In turn, this leads to an increase in ROI for investors.
