Navigating towards brighter horizons: Waterside properties in 2024

Navigating towards brighter horizons: Waterside properties in 2024

Associate and Totnes office Sales Valuer, Luke Miller, looks ahead to a positive 2024 and showcases some of the stunning waterside homes currently for sale across the South West.

As we continue into 2024, the waterside property market is poised for a resurgence, buoyed by renewed optimism and promising indicators. While 2023 posed its challenges, a new year brings opportunities and excitement for buyers, sellers, and industry professionals alike.

In 2023, the waterside property market encountered hurdles, witnessing shifts in valuation figures, listing dynamics, and sales activity. Stags’ waterside department saw a 10% decrease in property valuations across the year with a 16% increase in properties listed for sale, yet sales activity experienced a downturn, compared to the previous year.

Early on into 2024, Stags have already seen positive signs for the year to come with new buyer registrations, viewing numbers and valuation requests up compared to this time last year. The allure of waterside living remains steadfast, drawing in discerning individuals seeking their dream home by the water’s edge. Here are some stunning waterside homes we currently have available;
