We had been aware of this derelict Victorian built former dairy on Rosendale Road for many years. In fact we'd given advice both to the owners, and several prospective purchasers on a number of occasions. Quite why a sale hadn't been concluded earlier is debatable, but when given the opportunity to arrange a prompt unconditional sale we weren't going to let it pass us by!
The site has a footprint of over 10,000 sqft, sits in a very appealing spot and looks ripe for the picking in terms of development. We implemented an intensive marketing strategy, and after several block viewings a host of offers were received on an entirely unconditional basis.
A full legal pack had been readied alongside the marketing, which enabled us to ensure that contracts were exchanged in just a couple of weeks prior to Christmas. The sale to a private property company at £250,000 over the guide completed early in the New Year, and the new owners are in the process of preparing a planning application.
If you have similar premises to sell, please contact us for advice on value, guide price and marketing strategy.
