With the increased use of the tablet based reports, net profit is expected to grow naturally as less visits to properties will be required when offering a ‘move in service’. Typing has currently been subcontracted to a self-employed typist, which will no longer be required.
Areas to consider to potential future development include implementing a regional marketing strategy designed to further promote the business in order to attract more clients in a larger geographical area. The business has not marketed itself for the last three years and its Facebook page is dormant - by readdressing these platforms, the business can further expand its marketing reach. The nature of the business would lend itself to providing relevant services, such as floor plans for estate and letting agents, Energy Performance Certificates and stocktaking services.
One of the partners is willing to stay on to help ease the transition for up to one month. Intelligent Business Transfer have been requested to find a suitable buyer.
