A couple in West Sussex are now looking forward to their retirement after the sale of Avon House, a superb elderly care home, through Redwoods Dowling Kerr.
Avon House, registered for 19 residents, operates from a highly visible and imposing three stories detached period property in Haywards Heath, West Sussex. Ideally situated, with road and rail links to London, Avon House offers all its residents a superb ‘home from home’ feel. The business was initially purchased by the vendors five years ago and was only placed on the market due to their wish to retire.
Following a high number of viewings and 6 offers, the business was sold to first-time buyers who were attracted to Avon House thanks largely to its excellent trading record and good location. They are now looking to ensure the continuity of the business and improve the setting further.
The buyers said: “We would like to thank Josh Higham at Redwoods Dowling Kerr for his dedication and commitment to successfully aiding our purchase of Avon House. There have been some hurdles to overcome along the way and, in the face of stiff competition from other buyers in the outset, he was able to successfully secure us the acquisition.
“He was always on hand to deal with any issues regarding the sale and his excellent level of service throughout the procedure and was a credit to himself and Redwoods Dowling Kerr. We would definitely look to work with him again on any future acquisitions.”
The vendors, Mr Howard and Mrs Melanie Jones, said: “We would like to offer our thanks to Josh in doing a great job in achieving the highest possible price for the sale of our care home Avon House. Through his negotiating skills, he was able to secure an excellent offer on our business, having generated interest from various different buyers and dealt with the process of negotiation in such a professional manner.
“Despite the inevitable ups and downs of the sale process, we can now look forward to enjoying our retirement. We would recommend the services of Joshua Higham and Redwoods Dowling Kerr to any business owner who is looking to achieve the best possible results when selling their business.”
Josh Higham from Redwoods Dowling Kerr commented: “It’s great to have achieved such a desirable sell price in the end for the vendor, once we had an agreement for sale in place everything moved forwards smoothly and all parties were very happy with the end result.”
