H Tiddy independent estate agents have been established for over 100 years and are based in St Mawes. They pride themselves on good old fashioned service and values but use up to date technology to widely promote the properties they sell to local, national and international buyers. They have been successfully selling properties in the St Austell Bay area for over 20 years and, they are specialists in the local area covering The Roseland Peninsula and also the areas around the Fal River and Carrick Roads.
Mark Willson, Director of H Tiddy Independent Estate Agents based in St Mawes is proud to announce that 2016 was one of H Tiddy’s best trading years in the long established history of the company dating back over 100 years.
H Tiddy sold nearly 30 million pounds worth of property, covering their specialist areas from Mylor to Mevagissey, including The Roseland Peninsula, St Mawes, The Cornish Riviera and the tributary rivers and creeks on The Carrick Roads.
In our last newsletter, quickly written and circulated immediately after the BREXIT result, we predicted: “in the short term, we at H Tiddy are advising both sellers and buyers that we could have a wave of increased activity over the next few months”.
This has most certainly been the case. Stronger demand, combined with a shortage in housing supply and lower interest rates, has resulted in certain properties entering a competitive bidding situation, with offers and subsequent sales dramatically exceeding the initial guide prices advertised.
One of the key financial questions facing the UK now it has voted to leave the European Union, is what will happen to the housing market and more importantly, will house prices fall or rise?
It was a great day for St Mawes as well as petrol heads last Thursday 5th May as a collection of fantastic classic cars parked on the quay in St Mawes before parading through the narrow streets as well as along the waterfront and past the Castle. The Concours d' Elegance was organised to raise funds for Childrens Hospice South West and sponsored by H Tiddy Estate Agents, Bonhams and Thienot Champagne.
The St Mawes Classic Car Festival not only attracts local cars but also many national classic car owners who travel down the M5 to enjoy the numerous beautiful Cornish attractions as well as admire and soak up the atmosphere of the county’s ever-changing and exceptional landscape whilst travelling around.
H Tiddy Estate Agents have been established for over 100 years. The company is a professional and highly experienced independent organization based in the exclusive Cornish coastal village of St Mawes. They successfully sell a wide range of properties in all price categories in and around the rivers of The Carrick Roads (in the Truro and Falmouth areas), the Roseland Peninsula (the jewel in Cornwall’s crown) and the Cornish Riviera around Gorran Haven, Portmellon and Mevagissey.
The UK’s housing market is accelerating amid strong demand and a lack of supply. The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors has doubled its forecast for price rises this year from 3 per cent to 6 per cent, and says average stock levels stand at 30-year lows.
Following the recent addition of two new negotiators to the team, H Tiddy are delighted to announce the refurbishment of their St Mawes office. Located in the heart of village, they are perfectly situated to service the Roseland and Carrick Roads. The position means they are on the 'frontline' and part of the local community regularly dealing with 'off market' sales. Mark Wilson, Managing Director of H Tiddy commented, "we have had a very encouraging start to the year with a number of sales already agreed.

It has been well reported last year that there had been an easing in house price growth since the summer. Equally, latest reports from The Halifax show that national house prices in the three months to November were 0.7% higher than in the preceding three months, therefore, the housing market is starting to become more active again. Annual price growth in 2014 was reported to be 8.2%, which peaked in July at 10.2%.
