A warm welcome to our South Hams property supplement An exciting new venture for both Devon Life and ourselves – designed to showcase a selection of properties and services available at Marchand Petit. Following 2016, a year in which we undoubtedly lived through ‘interesting times’, we are all probably looking forward to a less eventful 2017. Clearly one would have to be brave or foolhardy to predict what will happen, however, one thing is for sure – people will still both want and need to move home this year. With limited stock available and moving costs increased by higher rates of stamp duty, every deal has become vitally important for buyers and sellers alike. With volumes of house sales not predicted to increase substantially it is more important than ever to ensure that any deal results in a successful conclusion. Whilst the internet nowadays provides a great deal of information to buyers and sellers alike, a good estate agent will handle the sensitive issues that inevitably arise throughout a transaction, as well as any technical issues that need resolving between parties. Contrary to the view taken by one of our competitors, that estate agency is a ‘retail’ business, we at Marchand Petit view the selling of a house as a ‘service’ business where the needs of our sellers and buyers are of paramount importance – we consider both to be customers. Each property is individual and not a homogenous retail product and each client has individual needs and expectations. To that end in 2016 we handled the successful sale of approximately 400 homes in the South Hams to the property value of over £200 million. So if you are looking to sell or rent a property give us a call to discuss your needs and if you are looking to buy a property in the South Hams please remember not all available stock is visible on the internet – please call us to find out why…

Spotlight on ReSidential lettingS… the yeaR ahead


n the Lettings market where success is traditionally founded on stability, 2016 was defined by change and external uncertainty caused mainly by changes in the buy-to-let market which included, to name a few, stamp duty changes relating to second home ownership, tougher affordability on buy-to-let mortgage products and Brexit. Now we are in 2017 and further changes await. The headline change is George Osborne’s decision to cut mortgage interest tax relief in last year’s Summer Budget, which comes into force this April. However, the tax fall out on landlords continues with changes on how wear and tear deductions can also be made. All of this means that becoming a landlord for the first time, or expanding a small portfolio, is more difficult and less appealing. Therefore, expect national buy-to-let mortgage transaction levels to reduce in 2017. However, in choppy waters people head for safe harbours and at Marchand Petit across our offices in the South Hams, an area with high

second home ownership levels, we have seen existing holiday home and second home owners shift their focus to residential lettings in larger numbers. As they look to take advantage of the benefits that a long-term tenant and income brings. With interest rates set to stay at record lows for the immediate future, property remains an attractive option for any investor with capital and a medium, to long term, view for return. After a very successful 2016 which, as I write in January, shows no sign of slowing, this view is obviously shared by investors and landlords locally. With demand in the key areas of the South Hams set to continue to outstrip supply, driven mainly by first time buyers staying in rental accommodation for longer periods as raising a deposit remains testing, or they wait on new homes incentives, rent levels look set to remain steady and above the regional average. Marchand Petit offers a total property solution for home buyers in this lovely region of Devon.

Across our multi-disciplined departments our breadth and depth of experience at local level is second to none. We are the agent of choice for anyone in this area and we will work with you every step of the way to ensure you find the tenant, or property, that matches your requirements. Mark Hoskin

Spotlight on new homeS and land in the South hamS the yeaR ahead


s we sit here in January 2017, the eagerly awaited Government’s Housing White Paper is due to hit the press.

It promises to be a “set of radical plans set to change the housing supply”. Many snippets have already been leaked, including introduction of more Garden Villages Aid and the funding of local authorities to build starter homes with the magical 28% discount off the open market price. Unfortunately, in many parts of South Devon this may simply not work as the house prices are too high in the first instance for many first time buyers. Further conjectures have included the planning system, housing supply and tenure mix. The key for housing supply, many believe, lies with the easing of the planning system, where it is believed many plots lie unresolved. Here in the South Hams, however, we are very optimistic about new homes in 2017, with many exciting new developments coming to market during the year. Our current hotspots are within the Totnes area, where Baltic Wharf is selling well and where the next phase promises some excellent homes overlooking the River Dart. Watch this space for details of Trenemans an exciting development in Thurlestone, another hot spot for 2016/17.

On the land front, 2016 was a successful year but we have many developers looking for land, from barn conversions to larger sites, so do contact this office if you have any land opportunities or enquiries. Andrew Biggs, Land and New Homes Manager, 01548 233100. Email Details of all our developments can be found at Andrew Biggs
