Stags Waterside Department has seen a significant growth in sales over the past twelve months with statistics showing a 25% increase over 2014. Within this there are interesting regional trends including the noticeable rise in demand for property along the North Devon coast. Whilst it is always difficult to pin point exactly what prompts these changing market movements, there has been extensive media coverage of the area and as the Cornwall offices of Stags have seen following ‘Poldark’, this generally proves to have a welcome positive effect on property.
The new edition of Stags waterside magazine will be out within the next couple of weeks showcasing the enticing variety of waterside property that is currently available along the coastlines of Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset. We also feature interesting articles written by Simon Forman (Barnstaple Office), David Lewis (Plymouth Office) and Guy Parsons/Sarah Powell (Wadebridge Office) highlighting the opportunities that exist to make the most of our precious leisure time.
Four staff members from Stags took part in the annual Bishop Fleming Challenge Trophy which was held to raise much needed funds for the sailing charity “Horizons” who use sailing as a platform for transforming the lives of young people in the West Country. The race took place in the picturesque Plymouth Sound, with Stags finishing in an extremely respectable third place.
A question that Waterside agents are often asked is ‘how much of a premium does a property with a water view attract?’ Whilst the answer can vary massively depending on the exact location of the property and whether it benefits from direct water frontage, a slipway etc, our research department has reviewed statistics over the past 12 months, finding a surprising 55% premium over an inland property.
Whether you are selling a ‘lock up and leave’ apartment or stunning frontline ‘Grand Design’ we have buyers with varying budgets and wish lists searching for the perfect coastal home. Please contact your local coastal expert for a confidential discussion and discover how much of a premium your waterside property could attract.
