A: Agent C: Client
A: Sir, may I help you?
C: Yes, I would like to buy a new industrial unit in Kowloon Bay.
Can you help me?
A: Yes, do you have any particular buildings in Kowloon Bay in mind?
C:I want a new or a two-to-three-year old property.
My friend recommended to me the Nan Fung Industrial Center. How is it?
A: The Nan Fung Industrial Center is only two years old.
The layout of the property is clear and it is similar to commercial buildings.
Also the efficiency rate is about eight percent.
Sir, may I know what kind of business are you running?
C: I'm running a publishing company.
The landlord of my existing office is not going to renew my lease, so I'm considering buying my office.
I know the new industrial buildings are similar to commercial buildings.
Also, the transportation to kowloon Bay is convenient, the district development is new, and I also believe it is a good investment.
A: Sure, I agree with you. How big is the area you require?
C: Around one hundred square feet.
A: No problem, sir.
First, I will see if any vacant units of around one thousand square feet are available.
Secondly, I will find some other industrial properties of similar grade for you to compare.
Here is a client information form.
Would you please fill it out?
C: No problem.
(After five minutes.)
I have put down my mobile number and office number for you. Everything okay?
(Read the information sheet.)
Sir, here is my business card.
I will arrange property inspection for you as soon as possible.
C: Thank you. I await your call.
A: Sir, what do you think about this unit? It's used to be a glass retailer.
The landlord wants to sell this unit and buy a bigger one.
C: What is the size of this unit?
A: The gross area is one thousand square feet, and the net area is seven hundred and eighty-eight square feet.
It suits your requirement.
C: How much is it?
A: The landlord is asking two point five million Hong Kong dollars.
C: I think the price is a little too high.
My friend bought a unit of the same size last month and it costs two million dollars only.
As I know, the price for industrial property hasn't risen for the past three years because most factories moved to Mainland China.
A: I don't think so.
The demand for new industrial property keeps increasing.
As you know, the layout design and facilities for new industrial properties are different now.
It just looks like Grade B office properties in Central. However its price is much lower.
The cost of Grade B building in Central has already gone to seven thousand Hong Kong dollars per square foot.
C: Well. How many elevators are there?
A: A total of four elevators for passengers and another two for loading goods.
After seven o'clock in every evening, it will change to two for goods and two for people.
C: How much is the management fee?
A: The management fee is two thousand dollars per month.
C: I see. I have to think about the price first.
I will call you back for further discussion.
A: Okay. Thank you.
