Dear Reader Welcome to the first edition in 2012 of our At Home Magazine which brings you information on the best properties being marketed covering all prices ranges in the beautiful area served by our seven offices. There will be several more editions of this magazine in future months this year;  if you want to keep in touch with the market and are thinking of buying or selling do make sure that you get your copy. It is interesting to note that there has been a busy start to 2012, with the number of viewings at the beginning of the year being 70% higher than the same period last year.  The indications are therefore that there will be more activity in the market in 2012 and, with interest rates set to remain low, we expect to see sensibly priced properties changing hands in greater numbers than in the past three years, notwithstanding concerns about the economy. So if you are a potential buyer, currently sitting on the fence wondering what to do, we suggest that now might be quite a good time to make that move. In any event we look forward to see you or hearing from you and hope that we can help you to find the ideal home. We hope you enjoy looking at our latest selection of new instructions.

PROFESSIONAL PROPERTY SOLUTIONS and PROPERTY AUCTION DEPARTMENT • Probate and Inheritance Tax • Capital Gains Tax • Loan Security • Disputes and Litigation • Compulsory Purchase and Compensation • Livestock-Chattels-Property Auction Professional valuations are required on many occasions and Marchand Petit can provide these through its Professional Department run by Stuart Cartwright MRICS. Here is a short history of his experience demonstrating the many ways he is able to offer professional advice. Stuart Cartwright MRICS

Stuart Cartwright has been a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors for the past twenty years and joined Marchand Petit as a director in 2002. His career started with auctioneering and he has carried out bespoke auctions ever since including livestock, chattels and property. Stuart is now wishing to develop further the Auction and Professional Department within Marchand Petit.

Completing College and gaining entry to the RICS Land Agency Division Stuart worked within the District Valuer’s Office based in Taunton specialising in valuation and tax matters. He then moved to a private practice concentrating on livestock and compulsory purchase compensation and then to a rural practise working on easements, way leaves compensation, property sales and arbitration. His final move was to Exeter specialising in farm sales and valuations. As a chartered surveyor Stuart is able to carry out and give advice on many professional valuations requested - from probate and inheritance tax to compulsory purchase and compensation. His professional experience, together with his extensive market knowledge derived from the residential side of Marchand Petit, enables him to give advice on any aspect of a professional valuation. Stuart is based in the Modbury branch of Marchand Petit, but his professional work covers the whole of the South Hams. The Inland Revenue is tightening up on capital gains tax regulation and it is becoming more and more important, in all aspects of professional valuations, to have an accurate and professional report. Recognising the calibre of clients Marchand Petit are servicing, in a very competitive market, has led to his professional services being more and more in demand. If you would like to discuss any questions you may have please feel confident to call Stuart confidentially on 01548 831163, or make an appointment through Helen Burr on the same number.

NEW HOMES 2012

- A good year? If you consider the initiatives, announced by the Government and associated agencies already this year, it would certainly appear to be heading in the right direction. Firstly Housing Minister, Grant Shapps, announced a new partnership between the Government and the NHBC to gain a greater insight into efforts to “Get Britain Building Again” therefore making a difference in communities across the country. This initiative allows ministers to access information from the house building industry from materials and journey times from start of the construction process through to the final sale. This, along with the Government’s action to help unblock the property pipeline,

in effect a £400million “fund”, will hopefully re-start stalled developments while the mortgage indemnity scheme helps first time buyers to find the funds they need to buy newly built properties. The Future Homes Commission also currently carrying out a major national enquiry, into the quality and delivery of new build houses, including focus on internal design, designing of local communities and the housing market, and probably more importantly, finance and affordability. 2012 is starting well……………? In February, the Housing Minister, highlighted more action to “Get Britain Building Again”. He has identified, enough Government land

to build 80,000 homes, but is further working with organisations, including the BBC and Royal Mail, to find even more unused sites for building, hoping to release enough land for 100,000 homes for 2015. This, along with the Housing and Communities Agency’s initiative aimed at unblocking stalled schemes, announces that it has chosen 18 developments to be taken forward to the next stage of the” Get Britain Building” Fund assessment process. These could deliver 1,300 homes, and include major house builders within the South West. Developments include Redrow’s Devonport “ vision” in Plymouth, a pioneering landmark scheme. Just announced the New Buy deposit scheme mentioned earlier is due to be expanded to all new home buyers up to £500,000 from March 2012, watch this space…

Positive news for 2012 Marchand Petit act for many developers and have a selection of new schemes available throughout the South Hams. www. marchandpetit.co.uk Should you be currently considering a development, we would be pleased to assist you and can help on all matters from reliable advice on sales prices, based on extensive market research, through to a complete marketing package, including all advertising, public relations and brochure advice through to eventual sales, all in all giving a presentation to the market that will inspire confidence in any project.

PRIME WATERFRONT AND COUNTRY HOUSE

Spring Has Sprung!! What an exciting start to the year we have had in our Prime Waterfront and Country House Department. No one was sure as to whether or not the forthcoming year would be a positive one but I am glad to report that so far, for us it has been very encouraging, with several properties being sold, exchanged and completed in the first month of 2012. This trend is continuing into February and we are finding that many of our cash buyers who have spent the last couple of years deliberating as to whether or not they should invest their money, have decided enough is enough and decided that the

time is now right. People are taking the situation into their own hands and decided to invest in property again, however this shouldn’t be taken for granted. These early success stories are the result of serious hard work on our behalf as well as the strong relationships we are forming with our potential buyers and vendors. As always of primary importance is pricing and getting that right is the first and most important step in selling your property. The potential buyers are out there but are somewhat frustrated with the lack of choice coming their way. This is a positive message for

those vendors with quality properties to sell, because as long as they are at the right price level, offers follow, resulting in sales. Being experts in the local market has also proved to be an outstanding advantage with Marchand Petit’s Prime Waterfront and Country House department securing sales on properties where other agents failed. The need for good honest advice has never been so important and the relationship formed with your estate agent is of vital importance so together the best price can be achieved on your property. With some exciting new houses coming to the

market at sensible prices, we are looking to continue the positive start we have had to the first quarter of the year. The upper end of the market is certainly feeling positive, and this sentiment can only be encouraging in a market place which has found the going tough in recent times. So if you are considering selling or if you are already on the market and have had little interest, then do not hesitate in contacting the experts, where we will put our experience to it best use for you.
