This is the starting point for most progressive organizations. Strategic planning involves identifying trade areas to focus upon for expansion, and determining who your competition is within a given market. The market’s size, and the dominant participants in that market area are important parameters to consider. Accubranch has vast experience in providing valuable intelligence in this regard.
Can your target real estate market support the new branch you plan to site there? Accubranch can characterize market areas based on specific drive times relative to selected nodes. They can then geo-locate where your best customers and target businesses are, and identify those markets best suited to your organization.
Using data to drive research, combined with physical investigations of the trade area, the Accubranch team identifies and sorts all potential branch locations by rank based on your organization’s requirements. Notably, they will include sites with high potential that are not currently offered on the market, with a view to negotiating a lease or purchase arrangement.
It is important to perform Deposit Estimators for the highest ranked branch locations. These studies provide deposit projections for the bank’s first five years in business at that location. Return on Investment can then be calculated.
Accubranch guarantees that all work is performed on a confidential basis. The client’s identity is never revealed to landlords or sellers and they’re kept well informed throughout the entire lease or purchase process. This way, the client’s financial interests are protected, and can make timely lease or buy decisions.
A key aspect of property acquisition involves obtaining land use permits from local and state authorities. These permitting processes can be difficult and protracted. Accubranch has the experience to fast-track your branches to functioning status, saving you time, effort and money.
