Coastal hotspots of 2021!

- Wed 08 Dec 2021

The West Country favours some of the most desirable coastlines in the UK, from the most southern part of Cornwall all the way up to the North of Devon, therefore not to our surprise many places in our region feature in the top 10 Coastal hotspots in 2021.

New data from the property website, Rightmove reveals that St. Ives, Newquay and Brixham all feature in the top 10 Coastal average asking price hotspots. Brixham’s house prices have increased by 12%, the lowest of the three and closely followed by Newquay’s house prices that increased by 13% and St Ives finding themselves in the top 3 increasing by a huge 15% with the average asking price now being £473,161 from £411,484 in 2020. This doesn’t come as a surprise with the influx of people moving to the West Country since the pandemic, many families longed for homes by the seaside out of the hustle and bustle of cities, which therefor meant the prices of homes in the most desirable coastal towns have increased.

We were surprised that a few of our towns in the South West were not featured in the top 10 although must have been close; Penzance, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth to name a few are highly sought after locations that all benefit from sublime coastlines and enjoy the quaint feeling of a seaside town and have experienced huge demand in 2021.

Darren Ellis, Group Sales Director commented “It is great to see St. Ives, Newquay and Brixham in the Top 10 Coastal average asking price hotspots. We are blessed with a vast amount of experience and expertise in each of those offices and after what has been an extremely busy year in the property industry each office has done their upmost to adjust to make it a memorable one.
