Bruntwood Announced That Recent Improvements To Its Website Have Proved A Success, As Office Space Enquiries See A Significant Boost Over The First Few Weeks Of Going Live

Bruntwood, commercial property company, has announced that recent improvements to its website have proved a success, as office space enquiries see a significant boost over the first few weeks of going live.

The changes to the site were completed following a desire by Bruntwood to improve their existing site in order to make it easier for customers to be able to search for office space, serviced offices, virtual offices and meeting rooms, as well as increasing the sites’ capability to showcase photos of the various office properties more prominently.

The redesign was undertaken by interactive design company magneticNorth (mN) and since its launch on the 30th of April Bruntwood has already seen increased office enquiries by 10% across the initial three weeks.

Simon Scott of Bruntwood said: “The new website is a one-stop shop all of our products. They are showcased in such a way that potential customers can quickly and easily locate an office that meets their exact requirements. With over 90 office buildings in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham and five different products, it was essential that each region and product had a representation on the site, as well as and easy to use search function.”

Lou Cordwell, managing director, Magnetic North, said: “Bruntwood had a desire to increase the conversion between visitors to the site and follow-up enquires. Our design team facilitated this by creating a simple search functionality which allows customers to easily browse the company’s varied range of office spaces. In addition, the enhanced focus on photography delivers real impact as it demonstrates the variation of premium office space they have within their portfolio.”

Property Portals – Global Top 100

New research published today by Globaledge.co.uk reveals the most important property portals on the internet. The research analyses more than 250 portals covering 42 countries and eleven languages and ranks them according to their power on Google.

To evaluate each portal, Globaledge.co.uk used SEOMoz’s LinkScape tool which replicates the most important elements of Google’s algorithm by ranking the importance of over 34 billion URLs. To order the list, Globaledge.co.uk sorted the data by the number of unique inbound links each portal has.

US portals dominate, but for how long?

Four US portals, Realtor.com, Zillow.com, Trulia.com and Move.com make the top ten. Globaledge.co.uk director Ashley Rigg isn’t surprised by the results. “Property portals in the US have a distinct advantage in the rankings. They work in a market that is at least three times the size of even the biggest European countries so there are many more websites that could potentially link to them.”

Also making the top ten are China’s Sofun.com and Focus.cn which reflects the growing importance of emerging economies on the web according to Rigg. “Just over 20% of China’s population are currently online and it’s a similar story in many other large emerging markets. As these online populations grow, so will the number of websites built to serve them. If we did this exercise again in three years time, I’d be willing to bet that the list will be like a ‘Who’s Who’ of property portals in the developing world.”

It pays to be a market leader

Interestingly, seven of the top 10 portals are all leaders in their respective markets. Realtor.com or Move.com are market leaders in the US (depending whether you believe Hitwise or ComScore), Soufun.com, Funda.nl, Realestate.com.au and Immobilienscout24.de dominate in China, Netherlands, Australia and Germany respectively. The Immobiliare Network (which includes Immobilmente.com) which arguably dominates in Italy and Gdeetotdom.ru is Russia’s largest stand alone property portal.

“When you dominate a market you become associated with that category. You not only tend to outsell your nearest rival by a huge margin but you also get talked about and therefore linked to naturally in conversations” says Rigg explaining the results. “These portals have huge inbuilt advantages in their markets. They are in a huge virtuous circle. Being well known gets you links which reinforces the trend. Dislodging market leaders is exceptionally difficult and is often extremely unprofitable.”

Regus Plc – 2009 Interim Management Statement

At the Annual General Meeting which was held on 19th May 2009, John Matthews, Chairman of Regus, the leading global provider of outsourced office spaceserviced officesvirtual offices and meeting rooms, gave the following Interim Management Statement covering the period from 1st January 2009.

“I am pleased to report that Regus has made progress and that the Board is satisfied with financial performance, given the difficult trading environment.

Revenues for the four months to 30th April 2009, (at actual exchange rates) were £387.0m, an increase of 16% over the £334.5m achieved for the same period last year. The number of actual workstations has grown in the first four months by 1,485 to 160,606 with 16 centres being opened, including our 18th centre in Manhattan, Pune in India, Hangzhou in China, and Warsaw in Poland. We have also opened offices in two new countries being Paraguay and Macau, bringing the total number of countries we operate in to 75.

We continue to generate cash with our net cash balance increasing to £227.6m at 30th April 2009. This is despite the strengthening in sterling which reduced our net cash balance by £5.5m and £18.0m being spent to develop our business. Our net cash balance has however benefited from a one off receipt of £18.5m. Subject to shareholder approval at the AGM we will be paying the 2008 final dividend of 1.2p per share on 29th May 2009 to shareholders who were on the register on 1st May 2009 Market conditions remain tough. We are continuing to see pressure on occupancy and price which is impacting net income, although this is partly being offset by the additional revenue opportunities arising from our portfolio of recession busting products and the benefits of our ongoing cost reduction programme. In these more challenging markets we remain confident of our future; we are in the number one market position, we have a truly international spread, we have a flexible business model and we have a strong balance sheet.”

This interim management statement contains certain forward looking statements with respect to the operations of Regus. These statements and forecasts involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend upon circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. There are a number of factors that could cause actual results or developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward looking statements and forecasts. Nothing in this announcement should be construed as a profit forecast.

Buy and Sell Cemetery Plots Recession Solutions to Cemetery Plots

Buy and Sell Cemetery Plots reports a substantial increase in national and international cemetery plot transactions during the fourth quarter of 2008 and the first quarter of 2009. As the recession has developed, the company has recorded a sharp upturn in listings at prices commensurate with the lack of stability in the global economy.

As the value of cemetery plots has remained stable, owners have sought to organize their portfolios. Buy and Sell Cemetery Plots activity indicates a desire by cemetery plot owners to liquidate their holdings while buyers are aggressively seeking present and future burial plot solutions. As with all commodities, the value of cemetery plots is a marketplace influenced by supply and demand. Currently, the demand is high.

The St. Petersburg Florida based company’s marketing program has generated wide support for Buy and Sell Cemetery Plots offerings. In accordance with the company’s magnified national and international listing base, the country’s largest reseller of cemetery plots has updated their website at www.buyandsellcemeteryplots.com. Buyers and sellers have responded well to the increased inventory directory.

Buy and Sell Cemetery Plots serves as a national and global reference center that assists buyer and owners locate specific cemetery plots, mausoleums, vaults and crypts. The company develops purchase offer contracts, assists with title work and coordinates all transactions.

For persons searching for burial solutions in advance of death or at the time of death, Buy and Sell Cemetery Plots has an experienced staff that maintains and manages a large Directory of verified deeds for final resting places. The St. Petersburg company also maintains a substantial list of pre-qualified buyers.

The title transfer is similar to other real estate transactions. Due to the sensitivity of the properties, all listing information, buyer information and details related to the transactions are confidentially managed by staff members.

Silverdoor Has Announced That It Has Added To Its Extensive Portfolio Of Accommodation By Introducing New Apartments In Cardiff And London

Meridian Apartments are a range of studios, one and two bed serviced apartments in Cardiff. They opened in February 2009 and are located in Cardiff city centre, near to the Millennium Stadium and close to both Cardiff Central and Cardiff Queen Street rail stations. The apartments are housed within a purpose built building and boast luxurious bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas and kitchens.

Since 2005 when Cardiff celebrated its centenary as a city and 50 years as capital of Wales, “Cardiff serviced apartments are becoming more and more popular due to the regeneration of the bay area and key parts of the city centre,” said Chris Gee, Sales Director at SilverDoor.

Another property recently added to the SilverDoor portfolio is Templeton Place in London, which is housed within a newly completed residential development in Earls Court. The apartments are conveniently located for Earls Court Exhibition Centre and the underground station, providing easy links for other parts of London. These serviced apartments in London offer a spacious, contemporary living area, with fully equipped kitchen and integrated appliances.

“This part of London is such a popular location. Trying to accommodate people who need to be near this area has been a challenge as we have not had enough serviced apartments here before. There are many apartment buildings in the surrounding areas but there weren’t enough in Earls Court and many have restrictions on lengths of stays, some with minimum stays of ninety nights. One of the benefits of Templeton Place apartments is that they will offer shorter stays,” said Chris Gee. “We’re delighted that we can now offer something in this area and are confident it will become a huge success.”

Also new in London is Gloucester Place Apartments in Marylebone. It is housed within a newly converted Georgian townhouse located less than five minutes walk from Regents Park and Baker Street underground stations. All of the one bedroom apartments have air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen with a range of integrated appliances and a comfortable lounge and dining area.

“Marylebone is a really popular area for serviced apartments in London and we get many requests, especially from overseas visitors who intend to stay for a while,” said Stuart Winstone, Head of Business Partnerships at SilverDoor. “The whole area has the feel of a small village to it and is so close to Regents Park offering the best of both worlds, yet is ten minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street and the West End.”

 

About SilverDoor
SilverDoor international serviced apartments was incorporated as a Limited Company in March 2000 under its original name of Hotdigs. At the beginning of January 2006 the company changed its name to SilverDoor. The company was formed and continues to be led by managing director Marcus Angell.

SilverDoor has also just added a selection of serviced apartments in Swindon and a selection of serviced apartments in Berlin to its portfolio. SilverDoor is based in Chiswick, West London.

The Chartered Surveyors Monthly Survey Reports An Increase In New Home Buyer Enquiries

London and Country Mortgages own experience is similar. Applications from first time buyers and next time movers more than doubled between January and April 2009.

At last we seem to have some sustained improvement in the housing market. The chartered surveyors monthly survey has reported an increase in new buyer enquiries for 6 months in a row and this is now feeding into actual sales. This has resulted in a decrease in the time to sell a property.

Another positive indicator is the Nationwide Consumer Confidence Index. In April 2009 this saw the largest rise for the last 2 years. In addition, the extension of the increased stamp duty threshold to £175,000 until the end of 2009 announced in the budget gives more time for would be purchasers below this threshold to complete on their property transaction.

From a product point of view, borrowers can lock in to extremely competitive fixed rate deals andencouragingly for those with smaller deposits competitive rates are once more available. Major lenders including Abbey and Woolwich have recently increased the LTV (loan to value) on some of their better deals.

Whilst we are far from out of the woods, there are signs at least that potential buyers are coming back into the market. Those that do will be able to take advantage of the low interest rates currently on offer.

Potential borrowers wanting to see how much they may be able to borrow can use L&C’s FREE mortgage calculator. For more information and no-fee advice, borrowers can call free on 0800 373300 or request a call back.

Bruntwood Has Announced The Completion Of Its £2m Development Of 1 Dale Street Offices, A Grade II Listed Office Building In The Heart Of Liverpool’s Traditional Commercial Quarter

Bruntwood, commercial office space provider, has announced the completion of its £2m development of 1 Dale Street offices, a grade II listed office building in the heart of Liverpool’s traditional commercial quarter.

1 Dale Street offices

The newly developed building has been carefully designed to offer a variety of high specification and cost effective Liverpool office space solutions from 950 to 23,750 sq ft, which would suit companies looking for office space right in the city centre for between 9 and 250 people.

The redeveloped Liverpool offices at 1 Dale Street combine contemporary finishes whilst maintaining the building’s original features, including sash windows, vaulted ceilings and iron columns. A new reception and entrance has now been added which opens out directly onto views of the Nelson monument in Exchange Flags, meaning office customers at the building are connected to one of Liverpool’s busiest commercial areas.

The central location means the offices are conveniently located only 15 minutes drive away from the M53 and 20 minutes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. The location also offers easy access to the rail networks, with Moorfields and Liverpool Central stations both nearby.

Mark Worthington from CBRE, a retained agent at the building said: “1 Dale Street is a prime example of how the heritage of Liverpool’s buildings can be preserved whilst still bringing them up to a high quality standard of office space. 1 Dale Street provides some of the most individual office space in the city centre and because of this, we’ve already had some strong interest in the offices at the building.”

1 Dale St is Bruntwood’s 11th building in Liverpool and takes its portfolio to 870,000 sq ft. Bruntwood sales surveyor, Colin Forshaw said: “Completing the offices at 1 Dale Street means that not only are we bringing a unique office product to Liverpool, but we can also provide our customers with more flexibility to move throughout our portfolio if their business needs change. Last year we helped over 50 customers cost efficiently up or downsize their office space in Liverpool, within the terms of their lease.”

Bruntwood Confirms That It Is Progressing Well With Its £7m Redevelopment Of The McLaren Office Building In Birmingham’s City Centre

Bruntwood, commercial property company, has announced that it is progressing well with its £7m redevelopment of the McLaren office building in Birmingham’s city centre, and confirmed the scheduled October completion date.

McLaren office building in Birmingham's city centre

Since purchasing the 115,000 sq ft Birmingham office property in April 2008, Bruntwood has successfully refurbished seven office floors and delivered a brand new reception area.

Bruntwood sales surveyor Rob Valentine commented, “We’re delighted with progress so far and our customers are pleased with the improvements we’ve made with the office space in Birmingham. The new reception is a complete transformation. It’s light, bright and spacious and by the end of May we will have installed the new bridge link that will connect McLaren’s entrance with Priory Queensway. This is an important milestone for us and makes access to the office building much more user friendly.”

Having delivered the new reception and a selection of refurbished floors, Bruntwood’s work at the office building in Birmingham city centre is now focused on improving its external appearance. The works, scheduled to be complete by October, will include the installation of brand new spandrel panels, window film and signage, as well as complete gable cleaning, which will give the office building the look of a new build property.

This work has contributed to the offices at McLaren being occupied by customers including Birmingham City Council, Scott Wilson and American Express. The remaining office space is available to let f r o m  300 to 60,000 sq ft, which is large enough to accommodate companies wishing to house f r o m 3 to over 600 staff.

Rob Valentine said, “With experience of very similar office schemes in Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds, we’re confident our work will mean McLaren will continue to prove very popular. Not only this, our competitive rents and flexible leases will mean that occupiers looking to relocate in Birmingham will have access to exceptionally high specification, yet cost-effective office space. Because a lease is with Bruntwood and not the building, it also gives customers the ability to up and downsize throughout our 90 building office portfolio, as and when their business needs change, without penalty.”

Bruntwood are now in talks with a variety of parties regarding the remaining office space at the building, with two companies showing significant interest in two of the 5,500 sq ft floors.
