With Easter nearly with us I am pleased to report that the town continues to progress nicely. As you approach the town you will have noticed the toll gate house has been sympathetically restored. Further along New Road, with a good show of blossom in the trees, we have Torbay’s newest fuel station nearing completion. At Bolton Cross the new Gateway building is really taking shape, which will really improve the visual approach into the town centre.
Around the harbour things look spic and span and the heritage vessels are having their final coats of varnish prior to a busy season. New businesses are springing up (including Flour Flower, On the Rocks restaurant and Co Co Cocktail and Wine Bar to name a few). Middle Street is still vibrant and offers great eating options.
The property market is also strong having seen a solid winter – we have experienced a good number of sales and are still seeing many couples from all over Britain wishing to settle in the Port. Property values have gently nudged up in a sustainable way (average Brixham property value circa £250,000 – approximately 2.7% rise in the last 12 months).
Purchasers still look for value and are very in tune with market prices.
On a sadder note, L. J. Boyce lost a dear friend in March. John Butt, who was manager of the office for many years, passed away aged 79 and will be greatly missed. John, ever the optimist, went into thousands of Brixham homes over his 30 years plus with the company. He had vast experience and a great sense of humour.
On a more positive note we welcome Kit Greenslade who is our new IT / Digital Media Manager. Kit is a local Galmpton lad and has great local knowledge as well as youthful energy!
We are all geared up and ready to assist you with any property advice. We pride ourselves in giving best advice and offer competitive commissions. As per 2016, every sold board erected will trigger as £25.00 donation from us to the Torbay Lifeboat.

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"
