Chartered Surveyors and Business Property Specialists

Investment

Investing in commercial property can be a very attractive proposition and as such we act for a number of investors who are based in all parts of the UK but are attracted to a growing optimism that exists within both Cornwall and the wider South-West as the region becomes an ever increasingly vibrant place for investors, business start-ups and those with ideas which people are ever keener to commit their money to.

Our investment team who act on a wide range of investment opportunities around both the acquisition and disposal of all types of commercial property. In the last 18 months our team have been extremely busy across all aspects of our commercial property business; from securing investments (more than £13 million in Truro and Exeter alone), to acting for high net worth individuals with substantial assets in a property management capacity.

For occupier demand, where supply in the industrial and office sectors is tight, we have seen prices increase in 2018 and expect the trend to continue. A strong appetite from investors seeking to secure returns on risk appropriate bases, particularly whilst interest rates remain at historic lows, remains a major area of our activity.

For clients involved in the tourist industry, some are ‘making hay’ benefiting from increased numbers and demand from home and abroad as a result of the £’s devaluation. Values for businesses have held up well in 2018 with some noteworthy sales achieved.

We pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge which coupled with our awareness of national market trends enables us to provide high-quality objective investment advice balanced with how we see anticipated future market moves.

With a proven track record and a well-established client base we provide in-depth analysis of individual properties building a picture of risk and opportunity whilst delivering creative deal making transactional advice.

Whether you are a seasoned or first-time investor looking at the commercial property market we would be delighted to offer you our expert advice, simply call us on
