On Average We Take 26.2 Minutes Inside a Property Before Putting in an Offer.

A property is probably one of the biggest assets, we will ever buy! So how long does it take us to decide whether or not a property is right for us? Well....

According to statistics provided by Zoopla. In the South West, on average, we spend 26.2 minutes inside a property before we decide whether or not to make an offer on a property. Which is 62% less than the time taken to decide on a car (88.8 minutes), Even a mobile phone takes us 46 minutes.

However, we do spend 80 hours researching about a house online. Which could be used to explain why we only need 26 minutes, because we know all the details. It's  comes down to the hallway effect. The first impression you get when you walk through that front door, 24% of people know within 10 minutes or less if the property "is for them."

All in all, We spend less time making a decision inside the property, then we do researching outside of the property. 

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"
