Andrew Biggs, who heads up Marchant Petit’s Land and New Homes Division has an in depth working knowledge of this sector of the property industry.
In his career, he has worked on both sides of the table. Acting as the developer for national companies employing agents and now working on behalf of individuals and house builders, acquiring, selling and specialising in the South West region.
“We are the only agent in the South Hams to have a dedicated land and new homes department and as a result we are now the experts and ‘go to’ agent for new homes in this desirable corner of Devon” he commented.
One of the current hotspots for new homes is Totnes, where sales momentum has been buoyant due to the town’s unique nature with the main railway line and excellent expressway links to Plymouth and Exeter.
“The government incentives such as Help to Buy are a huge help to the new homes market. We are also finding that purchasers locally are waking up to the other benefits of buying new, such as a blank canvas to create your own home and garden and the energy efficiency of all new homes, especially for buyers watching their monthly outgoings. The new build warranty is also a draw for buyers of new homes” Andrew added.
Marchand Petit are marketing a diverse and exciting selection of new homes. Origins in Dartington offered something very different by Cavanna Homes and Phase I is now fully sold. “They offered a product that hadn’t been seen before in that particular area. That is part of the enjoyment of this job, advising from the conceptual stages” Andrew enlarged.
Other current star performers are Baltic Wharf in Totnes, due to its diversity of product and its excellent location on the River Dart only minutes’ walk into the town centre and at Bloor’s impressive Meadowside there are only 9 left to sell on the outskirts of Totnes.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.
We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.
In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
