Long-term and predictable profits are core criteria for the owner of a business property. Sustainable plans and concepts and firm rental partnerships are thus high on the list of priorities.
We examine the owner’s vision and draw up an estimated rent in accordance with current market conditions. This allows us to market the property in a targeted and coordinated manner until the contract is signed.
Branch closure / Relocation
If changes in company expansion strategy mean that the premises it has rented no longer meet demands, we are there to provide flexible solutions.
These include organising negotiations with the owner on early termination of rental agreements including drawing up termination agreements and looking for a suitable subsequent tenant.
Our focus lies on prime commercial property locations in Germany’s major cities. We have many years of experience and success in selling property to top-rated national and international investors and private investors.
For most landlords and investors, purchasing and commercialising premium real estate in prominent locations is no everyday matter. Leveraging our profound knowledge of the market enables us to support and conduct these marketing activities in an optimal manner.
Our business philosophy is to serve and communicate our knowledge to our partners. Candour and keeping our word represent our central commitment as a company.
They define how we work and establish the basis for our special position in the real estate market.
As part of our consulting service, we assist national and international investors right from the preliminary stages of the project to the planning and implementation of marketable project designs.
This support reduces the costs for and time required by potential investors and has a lasting effect on the value added.
That is why our consultancy services are as comprehensive as they are detailed:
1. Preliminary examination of the location as part of the project verification phase (micro and/or macro-analysis)
2. Conceptual design, optimisation and structuring of retail premises.
3. Monitoring of buyer and seller due diligence
4. Valuation of properties used mainly as retail premises
5. Portfolio analysis / Portfolio consultancy
We support international brands wanting to expand onto the German market. Our brand customers often lack established expansion management strategies of their own, or they are retailers desiring to expand – either as franchise partners or based on their own devised concept.
Our expansion management not only provides valuable market knowledge and close contacts to shopping center developers, landlords, investors, corporations, and key specialized dealers, but also offers additional experience in operative retail, including merchandise planning, personnel, and visible merchandising.
IKP develops professional expansion strategies with the following services:
- location analysis and planning
- contractual negotiation support
- space realization and optimization assistance
- franchise partner acquisition
- development and monitoring of franchise, shop-in-shop (SIS), and concession concepts applicable for the German market
The real estate company IKP Kuchenbuch & Partner, specialise in the sale and the letting of retail properties in prime locations, successfully placed the sale of the properties Hohenzollernstrasse 2 and 4 in Hagen to a private investor.
The real estates were before in the possession of the project developer RMA from Duesseldorf, which revitalized the premises. The purchase price for both real estates is located in the two million range.
The IKP supported the RMA also by planning the new retail spaces. Now they correspond to the modern requirements of retail. Well spaced retail areas were created in the Hohenzollernstrasse 2, which were already rented by McDonald’s last year. Due to this lease McDonald´s definitely improved their location in Hagen. The second store in the premises was rented by Das Depot this year.
Yamamay, which was located on the Elberfelder Strasse 29 before and Geers Hoerakustik moved in the neighbouring real estate Hohenzollernstrasse 4 this year.
Before the RMA developed and sold the real estate Hohenzollerstrasse 1-11 in co-operation with the Codic, a real estate and project development company from Duesseldorf, in which Drogerie Mueller moved in. The letting and the sale were also realized by the IKP.
It was successful to enormously upgrade the Hohenzollernstrasse and to develop it to one of the top shopping streets in Hagen.
