Long evenings paddleboarding at the beach, idyllic coastal walks and savouring the delights that only Cornwall has to offer have all been part of the ‘staycation’ boom that we have experienced in the last two years.
Whilst there are challenges for business owners such as the cost of living crisis and ongoing staff shortages, we have seen the Business Transfer department handle instructions from modest ingoing premiums of £15,000 right up to acquisitions of large leisure sites in excess of £10m in the last few months alone. Business across Cornwall is headed in the right direction, and as Chartered Surveyors and Business Property Specialists we are best placed to advise on how to prepare your business for sale, including marketing, finding the right buyer and achieving the best possible price.
Miller Commercial are EGI’s Most Active Agent in Cornwall and advise clients across the Duchy on the acquisition and disposal of businesses, leasing and letting of commercial premises and managing commercial property whilst providing consultancy on development sites, investments and valuations.
Commercial Surveyor Jonny Bright, recently recognised as one of Cornwall’s 30 Under 30 as well as being a Cornish Ambassador, is optimistic about the future business prospects for Cornwall and is passionate about the Duchy being increasingly seen not only for its lifestyle but also as a place of opportunity and growth. Recent advice on new leases for national retailers in Falmouth and Penzance, sales agreed for office and living space and a village store alongside receiving instructions to dispose of a guest house in North Cornwall, exhibit the breadth of work we carry out that contributes to businesses placing themselves in Cornwall and providing employment for professionals, those starting out in their career, company directors, and small business owners.
There is no doubt that there is a bright future for the Duchy and we are pleased to be part of it.
