Margaret Bushnell, Retail Director at Carigiet Cowen was delighted with the response to the Oxfam Investment she brought to the market in Ambleside resulting in an early sale being agreed after seeking best and final offers from several interested parties.

Margaret stated "it was very encouraging that the property was so well received in the market place, dispelling the argument that the market in the north west is depressed with all growth occurring in the south east. If you have the right property in a good location with an excellent tenant on secure lease terms, a healthy yield can be achieved. Small investments are in demand from private individuals seeking alternative placement for monies giving such a poor return elsewhere."

Carigiet Cowen has also agreed terms for Oxfam on the Carlisle property and hopes this will go to exchange very quickly.
