The crucial role of property consultants during the pandemic
The surge of COVID-19 cases in the country the past weeks has further delayed the Philippines’ journey towards fully opening up the economy. In the pandemic era, expecting the unexpected could very well be the key to the survival and eventual success of a business.
One sector that has been challenged greatly by the pandemic is the real estate industry. And while many investors and property owners believe that the property market will recover as soon as the economy opens up, the Lobien Realty Group (LRG), one of the fastest rising real estate consultancy firms in the country, says now is the time when investors, property owners, buyers, tenants, sellers and lessors should seek the assistance of property consultants. When interactions between people like buyers/tenants and sellers/land owners are limited, it’s important to gain the services of a property consultant who has already gained the experience and expertise of how to transact in the ‘new normal’. These property consultants are able to ensure that a safe interaction can take place between the two groups. As a representative of the seller/land owner or the buyer/tenant, they can travel to places where their clients would not be able to and interact with various key persons involved in a particular transaction and work on behalf of a client’s best interest.
More than the know-how on the proper health protocols, property consultants have devoted their talents to researching and learning everything there is to know about the industry, gathering valuable market data, developing contacts and expanding their network, keeping up-to-date with current trends. As such, property consultants help clients determine and reach their goals; act as representatives of their clients in dealing with various personalities, teach their clients the compliance processes involved with different government agencies, and help clients understand the legal conditions of their realty endeavor.
LRG believes that the cost of hiring a property consultant is worth it. Having the support of a reputable property consultant at the onset of a property purchase transaction, for example, protects and even enhances the value of the property. Clients are also guided to selecting the options that will give them the greatest benefits while also being spared from the cost of making wrong decisions. An experienced professional property consultant leads its clients towards achieving their return-on-investment targets easier and faster.
As a property consultancy firm, LRG has built its name by embodying and staying true to its own mantra, “Building Lasting Partnerships”. Beyond closing a transaction, LRG puts a premium on the relationship it has with clients and gives time and resources to nurture and strengthen this relationship. LRG works very closely with clients, keeps transparent, and gives clients impartial advice so they can make a decision which will afford them the most fruitful returns. LRG always deals in good faith and strives to arrive at a win-win situation for the parties involved in real estate transactions it arranges.
In a ‘new normal’ where people are encouraged to stay far apart from one another and discouraged from socializing, a business that seeks out relationships with clients, and aims to build lasting partnerships with them stands out. LRG is on a mission to make the property consultancy business more personal, and in the COVID-19 era, this may just be something clients want as well.
