Searching for a new business?: NAI Harcourts

According to data from ChristchurchNZ (2022), Canterbury emerged from the post pandemic period as one of the top performing regional economies.

The results of MYOB’s Annual Business Monitor for 2024 also show that Canterbury-based businesses are feeling more optimistic and expecting a stronger performance in the year ahead.

Athol McCully, Business Broking Sales Manager of NAI Harcourts Grenadier, is seeing concrete evidence of this optimism every day. “The business environment in Canterbury is really buoyant and more and more people from out-of-town want to buy here”, says Athol. “Christchurch as we know is a great place to live and it seems that the word has spread.”

With more buyers coming to the market, vendors are being encouraged to sell. “Now is a very good time to either buy or sell, and we are seeing a wide range of businesses being offered for sale from accommodation to support service businesses and everything in between.”

Athol stresses that the guidelines for marketing a business, as far as the physical and financial aspects are concerned, are the same as for marketing a home. “Aesthetically, the business should be presented in the best possible light and all financial information should be up-to-date, and in
good order.”

With the biggest broker team of any Harcourt’s franchise in New Zealand on hand at NAI Harcourts Grenadier, vendors can be assured of advice from experts in a wide range of business types. If you are looking to buy or sell a business, talk to Athol and fellow broker Cecilia Xiao.
