A look back at Summer 2015

With summer behind us we can take stock of what has been a very busy period.  Brixham has been buzzing!  With many successful summer events and festivals, the town has had much to enjoy - Pirate Festival, Brixfest, Trawler Race Day, Brixham Hap’nin, RNLI Lifeboat Week, Steam Fair and Fishstock. 

Fishstock, the last of those events, was a wonderful community day and what was particularly interesting was the number of Torquay and Paignton faces that we spotted amongst the crowd.  It is so pleasing to see the residents of the Bays two other towns beginning to visit Brixham more regularly and it is recognition of how the town has been regenerated in recent years.  Yes, there are still more improvements required but Brixham is attracting a wider audience year on year. 

Here at Boyce Brixham we have been hitting a record number of sales and it has been really refreshing to see many more locals making the move after many years of us mainly selling to buyers from outside Devon.  There has also been much more action at the “top end” and we have negotiated a number of sales at £500,000, £600,000 and £700,000. 

Prices have hardened but any price increases have remained sensible and going into the autumn it is still vital that vendors are balanced with their asking prices.

We are very excited about the market in 2016 and as long as the general economy stays on track we hopefully will see another very active year in Brixham.

We would like to congratulate all those organisers and contributors who made those summer events so memorable for all the right reasons.  These occasions go from strength to strength and are enjoyed by thousands of locals and visitors.
