The property market in Dartmouth

The property market in Dartmouth

Marchand Petit are predicting a relatively stable market in Dartmouth this year and therefore a good time for you to consider moving. The uncertainty created by the impending May General Election and resulting Stock Market volatility will be largely offset by a background of low interest rates and inflation for the foreseeable future. Harder to predict are the effects of lower oil/petrol prices and recent Stamp Duty changes, certainly the latter are a genuine attempt to reduce the negative side effects of the previous stepped system.

As part of our commitment to the local community, in 2014, Marchand Petit became involved with Dartmouth’s Flavel Arts Centre through sponsorship of their Live Performance initiative; this has proved to be an extremely popular addition to the town’s activity. We take our contribution to the community extremely seriously and in 2015 we will continue to offer support through sponsorship and advertising of a number of local events including:

Dartmouth Music Festival

Dartmouth Fishing Festival

Dartmouth Shakespeare Week

Dartmouth Regatta

Dittisham Regatta

Dittisham Arts Festival

We look forward to an active 2015, and invite you to contact our Dartmouth office to discuss current market conditions, your specific property needs or more general enquiries regarding sales and rentals.


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.
