Brixham, although recently under a blanket of snow, is shaping up for spring! The local property market saw a busy January and February and usually that is a good indicator of a healthy spring market.
Before this last snowfall there were plenty of signs of the town shaping up for Easter and the new tourist season. There are some new businesses preparing to open and existing shops, restaurants and cafes are sprucing themselves up. Brixham is blessed to have two very strong industries, fishing and tourism. There are not many towns in the UK of this size that can boast of having two prosperous industries.
Over the last five years we have undoubtedly seen sizeable investments into the holiday home industry with many of our harbour cottages undergoing serious refurbishments. Consequently the experience for the holiday maker is very much enhanced as they can choose from a number of quality cottages and properties to enjoy their staycations. The result is more money being pumped into the local economy in many different ways. Builders and local trades are kept busy and there is more disposable income being spent in the restaurants, cafes and pubs etc.
We are sure that once again this year, we will see many more people from Torquay and Paignton come over to Brixham to enjoy the ever improving and varied eateries, bars and pubs. More and more South Devon folk are visiting the town for a lunch or dinner to complement their stroll around the lovely harbour area.
Here’s to a strong Spring 2018 for all Brixham businesses and we look forward to welcoming you all!

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"
