Sale of Commercial Land

WHY BARFORD + CO?

Experience Expertise and Local Knowledge

Our commercial agency team benefits from many years’ experience and expertise in selling and letting commercial land throughout Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire. We have been involved in many of the significant commercial developments completed in Huntingdon, St Neots, St Ives, Sandy and Biggleswade. Recent larger scale land sales and development projects include:

  • Huntingdon – sale of land (subject to planning) for proposed Sainsbury’s food store at George Street
  • Bedford, New Cardington - advice on commercial element (shops, offices and site for public house) within major mixed use development scheme and sale of residential site
  • St Ives Business Park – sale of one acre site to Marstons Inns for development of a new public house following construction of news access into northern end of site.
  • Huntingdon – conditional sale of two acre site for discount food store and associated residential scheme
  • Sandy – Sale of 14 acre industrial site for individual serviced plots following construction of infrastructure

Land Planning and Development Expertise

We have acted on numerous sites where having first obtained planning permission for commercial use, we are then instructed to dispose of the land with the benefit of that planning permission.

Disposal Strategy - Joint Venture or Sale as Serviced Plots?

Working with you, we will identify the appropriate disposal strategy which will depend upon a range of criteria including the required timescale for concluding a sale. We will also consider whether a joint venture with a developer may be appropriate. The potential for the infrastructure to be implemented such that self-contained individual serviced plots can be sold direct to owner occupiers will also be explored. This approach can lead to higher aggregated sale proceeds being realised.

Tailored Marketing Packages

Our success as agents arises from marketing packages which are tailored to achieve the optimum outcome for you. Our marketing will ensure that your property will be given the maximum possible exposure to prospective purchasers/tenants. Initiatives include:

  • Computerised applicant matching
  • Email alerts to prospective purchasers and tenants for new properties on the market
  • User friendly property search facility from Barford + Co website with easily downloadable sales/letting particulars
  • Maximum exposure to regional and national markets via websites such as Propertylink, PIP/Focus and EACH
  • Well presented sales details with accurate site plans and location maps
  • Targeted mailshots via our regularly updated in-house mailing lists

Competitive Charging – No Fixed Fees

We do not set fixed fees. Every instruction is charged according to our clients requirements for marketing.

Going the Extra Mile

Our way of dealing with your property goes beyond that of a typical agency service. We are renowned for:

  • Adding value - we will advise you on ways to add value before marketing commences
  • A tenacity in following up applicants, negotiating the best deal and driving the transaction forward to completion
  • Securing the optimum outcome within your required timescale

The Importance of Local Knowledge

Land values are primarily assessed by reference to comparable transactions. Our depth of local knowledge and firsthand experience of market conditions is essential to ensure that the value of your property is correctly established before you embark on marketing.

Our Reputation

Barford + Co has been established for nearly 40 years and is one of the region’s most high profile commercial agents. As members of the RICS and RTPI you are assured of the highest professional standards.
