7854 - For SaleStephen Taylor Managing Director of Guy Simmonds, leading national licensed property and business agents, states:

"At Guy Simmonds, we are delighted to report that despite the gloom of certain other agents’ results/forecasts, the continued uncertainty relating to Brexit etc., the market in 2016 was still extremely buoyant for us, and our vendor and purchasing clients.

In particular, the last quarter (Q4) of 2016 was exceptional with both a ‘rush’ of pub, hotels, restaurants and licensed businesses completions taking place before Christmas. Furthermore, Guy Simmonds have an exceptional 'pipeline' of businesses under offer at solicitors, that have carried over for completion in the new year and first/second quarters (Q1 & Q2) of 2017. These diverse sales range from a £20,000 pubco lease assignment up to a substantial private freehold selling for circa £3,500,000.

The freehold pubs and Inns, tied pubs leases (at realistic rents) and private free-of-tie pubs/licensed leased property market is very strong for us, and I predict this should grow further this 2017 year, despite the forthcoming volatility of Brexit negotiations.

7856 - For SaleOur speciality of advising/creating and marketing free-of-tie pub and business leases on behalf of our freehold retiring publican vendor clients and entrepreneur investors, should continue its excellent volume growth for us of circa 20% year on year.

We actually have a shortage of quality licensed businesses (both freehold and leasehold) especially in village/town/countryside locations. These are the businesses which undoubtedly are most in demand from our discerning purchasing clients for 2017. It is certainly a good time to buy a licensed business/pub/hotel/restaurant, since funding/loans for our qualified potential purchasers are relatively accessible and certainly interest rates for borrowers have presently reduced to almost an all-time low. Consequently 2017 is a great year to buy or lease a pub business, hotel, restaurant, licensed property. For purchasers buying or leasing a pub through Guy Simmonds, then we also offer access to our award- winning pub training course, at nil cost to our purchasing clients.

Similarly, it is also an extremely opportune time to sell a pub business/hotel, for vendors, providing of course the business is profitable with full accounts, correctly valued and marketed with a high profile agent, with a USP like Guy Simmonds. We are of course a long established successful agent, with the highest brand presence in The Morning Advertiser, and pride ourselves in having an excellent reputation within our field of expertise and the industry.

Our proven ‘pipeline of businesses under offer’ and optimism of the market for us in 2017, has also resulted in us targeting and actively recruiting further suitably qualified sales staff, throughout the country, to support our existing team of successful valuers, in order to intensify our coverage or England and Wales. This will be of even greater benefit for both our valued vendor clients wishing to sell their business and also prospective purchasers looking to buy.”
