The CIJ Awards are given annually to the most successful project in the real estate market. Although the voting of the expert jury and the gala evening have been brought online this year, we are glad that we were able to be a part of the whole event and even better that we take one of the awards home as well.
On June 26, together with our partners HSF Systém SK and the German investor Porta, we ceremoniously opened the eighth ASKO store – Nábytok in Slovakia. Together with two international brands Hornbach and SIKO bathrooms, the new store completes the integrity of the entire newly built shopping zone. How did the construction of the last part of the Hobby Park Prešov proceed?
Due to the circumstances, we moved the business breakfast concept to the online environment and, together with experts in financing, development and real estate, discussed the situation after the “blackout”. The second part of the June discussion was devoted to finance from different perspectives – how do banks react to the situation? What will happen to mortgages, will the expected decline in real estate prices come?
What is the direction of the real estate market? Today, this question is often heard not only from the mouths of investors, developers, builders but also from tenants and buyers. After the crisis in 2008, the answer is not entirely clear. It is all the more important to closely monitor the situation and react promptly to changes. What is currently happening in real estate, developers, and banks? What facts can we currently work with?
If you’ve ever sold a property, you probably know what it’s all about. Emotions are key, as with all decisions. Even perfect visualizations, home staging on photos of real estate portals, however, will not replace the real feeling we have when entering the door. So how to transfer emotion from space to the client and stimulate the imagination even without his physical presence?
Thanks to virtual reality and an online tool, we figured out how to work smoothly and continue to create value. From day to day, we exchanged the meeting for an online meeting in MS Teams, moved all the data to the Share point and, using virtual reality, we carry out online tours of new projects or apartments on offer. What may sound like a few steps at first is the key to winning over the crisis
After the successful completion of the residential project Residence Na Kolibe, we continue our efforts to create added value with a new project. The task of the still-life polyfunctional complex is to restore the neglected brownfield, bringing something new and beneficial to the site. The complex consisting of a dominant high-rise office building, a smaller boutique office building, a business hotel, a green courtyard, and a pleasant square will create a smaller local center for its future residents.
We create values, that is our motto. According to him, we follow every project, we build on it a marketing campaign and, in particular, we establish business partnerships in accordance with it. The Czech SIKO bathroom company is now an internationally renowned brand, but its foundation is built on traditional values and consideration. The consistency of corporate cultures has also been translated into business cooperation, which has resulted in the construction and opening of the thirteenth SIKO bathroom store in Slovakia.
The new era of development brings great challenges. Many of them arise from the current market situation and, above all, from the demands of customers, residents. The growing trend of e-commerce is putting pressure on logistics, whose task is to build centers that will meet customer requirements and at the same time enrich the surroundings. In the area of residential development, we see an increase in interest in rental housing. The city administration also announced the planned changes. What news does the municipality plan?
