Updated Market Review

2019 saw the Brixham property market particularly resilient despite the chaotic Westminster scene. As the New Year and new Decade roll into play, many are wondering what will happen in the property market. Will it see a strong resurgence?

The decisive win for the Conservatives at the end of last year meant a clear path forward has been established for the UK and the EU. Regardless of political persuasion, I believe that the clarity surrounding Brexit will result in a bounce in both increased confidence and activity in the Brixham property market in 2020.

You’ll see that from the charts to the left, that there has been very little movement on average property prices over the past 12 months – likely down to the national uncertainty discussed above. This isn’t bad news though - and a period of stability now gives us a stable footing to spring into 2020 with a clear picture of what your property is worth before you head into the market.

Back in Brixham, we have seen another ‘off-season’ with much more investment in and around the harbourside with new bars and upgraded restaurants aplenty – further establishing the town as the up-and-coming jewel of the South Devon coast. Another busy social schedule around the port with the now famous Pirate festival (May 2nd & 3rd) and the return of Fishstock (August 30th) to name just a couple really adds to the buzz that the town is getting more-and-more well known for now. An exciting time to be in Brixham!                 

 

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 lettings@ljboyce.co.uk"
