Finding the best Buyer
Finding the best buyer:
For offmarket transactions it is paramount that we target and find the best buyer.
But the problem with offmarket transactions is the target customers are not even scanning the market actively. It is important for the seller to understand who the target customers are. These are HNIs, hedge funds, portfolio investors and so on.
In most cases these customers who are capable of buying such high value properties are just waiting for the offers from their contacts or institutional procurement agencies.
The discrete nature of such transactions is another unique feature of offmarket deals. The main reason for this discreteness is to avoid public information broadcast. If the property in question belongs to an established business, then the news of the sell might harm the business prospects at other locations. A good example in this case is a well-known luxury hotel chain trying to sell one of their properties at a prime location in one of the German metropoles. If this becomes public information then the image of the company will be harmed and the market reputation of the organization will deteriorate. Because this inevitably generates some ill-founded rumors about the financial health and future prospects of that Organization.
Now the issue with this discreteness hinders the information propagation which in turn restricts the search for a buyer to a closed group.
This also harms the possibility to have a better negotiation position to find a higher price.
