fine buying & selling

There’s been a downward pressure on retail site prices since the 2008 crash and it persists largely thanks to the way online retailing has disemboweled the high street.

This has been compounded by a new trend since the EU referendum which has seen commercial properties drop further in value further as investors hold back. Great news if you’re looking to acquire a dental practice, but price isn’t the only consideration.

You need to know you are investing in something safe, and there are a lot of moving parts to consider here, not least how consumers of dentistry are changing.

It’s critical that you’re realistic about how the market’s going to look in your area when it’s time to sell, otherwise you could be in for a nasty shock.

“You need an end date to make sense of everything”

Gareth Thompson, due diligence director

site finding

Fine Company offers an end to end site finding service that dovetails with our due diligence work to bring you total visibility and control as you make what is probably the biggest investment in your life.

Your investment needs to succeed, and it will — but only if you know what information to look for, and get it.

The five most important factors when finding a retail site for your dental practice are location, local competition, hidden costs, planning permission and you exit strategy (yes, you really do need to be thinking about your exit as you’re going in).

Once we have your brief our research team evaluates key criteria and builds a shortlist of properties which then undergo due diligence so you’re presented with clear information. It speeds things up, cuts the stress and protects you from making costly mistakes at the start of your new business venture.

There’s so much information to analyse that hiring a team of experts at this stage can’t fail to save you considerable time and money. We can then begin to work on strategies to take your new business forward, safeguarding your future.

“Always have an exit strategy with your property.”

Sheraz Ahmed, management consulting

due diligence

Anybody approaching a practice disposal or acquisition has to think of it as a project. It needs an end date. That’s critical — you need it to make sense of everything.

You can go from shop window to transfer of ownership in three months if everything’s transparent and in order, otherwise expect the usual six months to a year, or more. So why wait?

You can transform a transaction by being ready. It affects the speed, confidence and trust, and speaks volumes about the way you run your business.

Unfortunately what a lot of people do is rush in and make a bid, or accept a bid, and then let their lawyer handle the byzantine paperwork around everything to do with the property, goodwill valuation, stock, employment contracts, equipment, and fixtures and fittings. Or they try and muddle through themselves. Both are really bad ideas.

At Fine Co we understand the compliance side, the accounting side and, crucially, the property side. We have leading experts in dental software, marketing, accounting and site finding in one place, so your project is coordinated and seamless because the transfer of relevant knowledge happens automatically.

That means we get to set the terms of the project (meaning big things like the end date) on your behalf. No one gets to hijack it, and you get control.
