Although the stats on our latest Market Snapshot (which can be found by clicking here ), there is a word of caution. The RICS is expecting “downturn momentum” in prices nationally in the near term. Longer term, over the next 12 months it expects house prices to rise or hold steady in all regions except London & the South East. We have detected a swing from a ‘full seller’s market’ to now seeing purchasers having more influence. For many years it has been a strong seller’s market and it is no surprise that we are now seeing the market balance up.
The first few weeks of January were more active than in 2018. There seems to be a determination to ‘just get on with things’ despite the woes at Westminster! We do feel that in 2019 vendors must be balanced with their asking prices and as previously mentioned, we feel that purchasers will begin to hold a stronger hand.
We are still extremely optimistic for the Brixham property market and for the town in general. Recently, Brixham was featured on both Sky News’ morning edition (Live Brexit debate filmed on the harbour side) and BBC’s The One Show (casting the spotlight on our underwater creatures!). Both programmes were watched by millions of people and there was some beautiful imagery and aerial shots of our town.
For sound advice on your home or your property, do contact us and using our local knowledge and wealth of experience, we would be delighted to help you.

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"
