Commercial and Business sales

Commercial sales

The Bayleys Canterbury Commercial team work locally from our Christchurch head office and with the wider Bayleys Realty Group to ensure we've got New Zealand covered from a local to a national level.

Our team of Commercial and Industrial experts is dedicated to facilitating the lease, management, and sales of property investment transactions, encompassing offices, retail spaces, and industrial land and buildings.

For sellers, we aim to obtain the best possible price for every property. We achieve this with our tailored marketing campaigns for both digital and print which exposes each property to as many potential buyers as possible.

For buyers, our specialised teams are on-hand to make your goals possible. We understand that buying commercial property is a significant purchase in a lifetime and access to information, advice and legal services are key to a smooth transaction.

Before listing, we work closely with vendors to understand their objectives and establish each property’s key selling points.

We then carefully consider which demographics contain the most likely buyers, and choose the appropriate type of media and marketing approaches.

We sell commercial property locally in Canterbury and also around New Zealand:

  1. Office, Retail, Industrial and Mixed Use properties that have tenants in occupation or which have vacant space.

  2. Land and Development Sites.

  3. Hotels, Motels, Motor Camps, Lodges and other hospitality industry properties.

  4. Large scale projects involving our Project Sales and Marketing division.

Business sales

Buying or selling a business is often one of the largest financial transactions undertaken in a lifetime

Either way, it is a process that needs careful planning and an understanding of the prospective purchasers and vendors.

Bayleys Canterbury's specialist brokers excel in facilitating business transactions. They specialise in areas like licensing, business valuation, strategic marketing, interviews, and negotiation. With their expertise and strong local connections with recent sales including business, hospitality and tourism across the Canterbury region, they can successfully assist clients in buying or selling businesses.

Buying a business.

Successfully buying a business is an involved process that we can help you with. It’s what we do. Once we’ve established some key criteria, Bayleys Canterbury brokers will advise what businesses are available to buy, what businesses are selling and how a price was achieved.

Identify opportunities

Sometimes certain market conditions and business sensitivities mean that not all businesses are openly marketed. Our brokers can give access to these business opportunities as well as those that are advertised plus give advice on market values. Finding the right business could take some time, and our systems ensure we keep you up to date with any new opportunities as they become available.

Make the best decision

For some, the prospect of purchasing a business can be daunting and we understand this. Utilise our expertise and draw on our experience. We are here to assist and guide you through the process, providing reassurance and the confidence to know which is the best business for your situation.
