Brixham Winter Comments

The Autumn/Winter Months is one of our favourite times of the year, Our little port town isn’t as busy as it can be in the summer, but activity is still around and the colours that we enjoy in Brixham are definitely exaggerated under the crisp skies we have at the moment, creating some of the best sunsets at this time of year.

For those thinking of moving, this time of year can still result in good quality pictures of your home which is vital for the marketing of your property, activity levels are still good and although the volume of viewing appointments decrease at this time of year we tend to get a better quality of applicant who are more motivated to buy property.

Boyce Brixham have completed on 92 sales already since the 1st of April as well as agreeing the sales of 21 properties in October alone, so if you want a free, no obligation market appraisal or you are thinking of moving in the new year then now is a great time to get in touch, and get one of our expert valuers opinions on your property value or indeed pointers on how to maximize your properties appeal and value! 

The winter months are a great time to get the little inside jobs done when the weather turns sour.

If you have an empty property now is the time to ensure either your central heating system and water supply is professionally drained down – any good plumber can do this for you of course, or alternatively keep your heating thermostats to low so they can at least prevent the cold snaps from freezing your pipes. Also, make sure you have adequate insurance on your property and that it being sat empty doesn’t affect your policy.

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"
