Anticipate to improve targeting
BNP Paribas Real Estate employees have noticed a significant change over recent years in the criteria used by our clients when making property-related decisions. Previously relegated to last place, or even ignored, environmental criteria now tend to dominate among those factors which may fundamentally guide investor and occupier decisions in selecting a building.
On the basis of this trend, BNP Paribas Real Estate’s Transaction teams are working in conjunction with those in Valuation and Consulting to deliver the most appropriate solutions to our clients.
Consulting staff stress to clients the benefits of selecting the most compliant buildings possible relative to these standards, in particular by striving to enhance clients' property ranking schemes to include ‘green’ factors.
As such, the Valuation team requests documents and information from its clients regarding the energy efficiency and environmental performance of property assets to be valued. This information gathering is a decisive factor in building valuations.
