A slice of Cornwall to suit all sorts
Quoting Clare Coode of Stacks Property Finders
Today’s Cornwall is no longer “just” a holiday hotspot or a retirement haven, descriptions which have dened it for decades. It now attracts different tribes, from gourmets to start-up entrepreneurs to artists; as a result, its housing market is more vibrant than ever before. House prices have risen 13 per cent since 2014 according to Zoopla, which is more than Devon, hitherto seen as better connected than its neighbour across the Tamar.
But homes are only part of Cornwall’s attraction: there’s the lifestyle, opportunity and a sense of liberation. “People used to leave London or Birmingham for the Home Counties or the Cotswolds for a semi-rural life,” says Claire Coode of buying agency Stacks Property Search. “Now those who want to be more free spirited go further, and that’s where Cornwall scores.”
Around 50 per cent of Coode’s clients are over 50 and moving down to retire or preparing for it. This is down from five years ago, when that figure was 80 per cent. The demographics are changing fast and Cornwall’s incomers are getting younger. “Not long ago anyone career-minded wouldn’t come for work or salary – they didn’t exist. But there are now 20-somethings wanting the lifestyle; young families able to make good jobs work because of faster internet; and older families who once stayed in the Home Counties, but with a business they can manage from home with occasional visits to London,” she says.

When making probably the most important financial decision of your life, it pays to have the right advisors at your side.
A holiday home is often an interesting mix of investment and heartfelt connection. You want to use it, but you may well also be keen for others to use it too. We can advise you on what factors to consider in making your decision. And we can then find the perfect holiday home for you to enjoy.
Others say, ‘location, location, location’. We say, ‘location, purpose, price, capital growth, rental returns’… the list goes on. Knowing the market is critical. Local knowledge is key. We ensure all aspects of your investment decision are addressed. Finding, analysing, negotiating, and completing… it’s what we do.
Relocating is time consuming and stressful. We regularly work with clients who live abroad. We hunt, short-list, prepare your viewings, and make the search process as easy as possible. We oversee the negotiations, manage the conveyancing, and deal with the headaches, so you can concentrate on other aspects of your move.
Retirement or semi-retirement is an exciting stage in life. Finding the right home to live in and enjoy it to the full is important. We know that and will do all that we can to understand what you’re looking for… before starting to search. And search we will, until we find the house of your dreams.
