Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Eric Clarke Estate Agents, Farnworth. The business was established by our client’s father in 1950, our client joined the company in 1976 after leaving school, he then took over when his father retired, and is now looking to retire himself. The business has built up an inevitable reputation with lots of repeat custom and a high volume of word of mouth recommendations. The company offers property sales and letting service advertising on their own company website, Rightmove, Zoopla, Findaproperty.com, Primelocation.com, Globrix.com. At present the company has 172 registered landlords and 198 registered tenancies covering areas of bolton such as Farnworth, Kearsley, Stoneclough, Great Lever, Little Lever etc. There is plenty of scope to broaden the area to increase the already thriving turnover. The 1st floor of the premises is currently used as storage but has plenty of room to rent out as offices to bring in additional income. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level. The current owner is looking for a quick sale and open to offers therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
