The year is just over eight weeks old and already we are experiencing a continuation of the strong trading that 2014 enjoyed. After a very strong December, January came alive quickly with strong demand for valuations and a decent number of sales agreed. February saw the arrival of the “snow birds” (couples from outside Devon!), arriving in numbers from the Midlands, South East and other areas to seek their perfect retirement property purchase or that holiday home in Brixham.
Generally prices here remain steady and sensible and stock levels have held up throughout the winter. We naturally expect to see more new instructions as we head into March ready for the Spring Market.The new Stamp Duty regulations have stimulated sales, particularly in the £250,000 to £325,000 range. Mortgage rates and products are some of the best we have ever seen although be warned that rates might be very attractive but the criteria that lenders insist on are still exacting.
We are very excited about the spring market and are just putting the finishing touches to our refurbished office on Brixham’s high street to greet new clients and old friends alike.
Do not hesitate to call in for an informal chat on how best we can help you or indeed to book that free valuation.

Boyce Brixham Covid-19 Information Regarding Viewings and Valuations
Following the latest change in government guidelines. Our Director Mark Boyce has the following message about the New Procedures and Strict Guidelines we will be following to ensure the safety and well being of our Staff, Clients and potential buyers.
"Welcome Back!As you are probably aware The Government has now lifted restrictions on Valuations & property viewings and we are now ready to safely organise these for you in line with Government and Health England guidelines. You will see links here to both The Government Guidelines and The Guild ‘Safe as houses’ Protocol (Links below). We strongly suggest that you read these prior to making appointments for valuations or viewings so that you are aware of the responsibilities that both you and ourselves must undertake.
We are talking with our vendors and many will accept viewings from now but some naturally prefer to still avoid viewings (especially if they are vulnerable or self-isolating). We have been working effectively from home but from Monday 18th May we will be operating from our offices again but urge you to call or send an email rather than visit the offices. We will only be permitted to allow into the office one person at any one time so calling or emailing may save you waiting in the street!
As before all calls for Sales will be answered on 01803 852736. Lettings can be contacted by email on firstname.lastname@example.org"
