At Howard Douglas we understand that selling your home is a major event that deserves considered planning at every stage.


Our aim is to help our clients achieve the maximum possible value for their property with the minimum amount of hassle.


Independent and Professional

Established in 1998, we are a truly independent firm with a highly professional team who have lived, been educated and worked in this wonderful part of South Devon for many years. We make the most of our local knowledge and our love of the area when marketing our clients homes. Our firm is a member of the Property Ombudsman (sales and lettings).




Market Appraisal

The starting point of any sale is establishing the correct value, and determining the asking price for your property can be complex. There are numerous factors to consider, including how quickly you need to move, the number of comparable properties on the market and the condition of your property. We offer a free market appraisal by one of our experienced Estate Agents. We also advise on the most suitable method of sale for your home including private treaty, tender or auction.


Probate, Matrimonial and Private Sale Valuations

Formal valuations are carried out by our senior partner, Howard Douglas, for a modest fee. Please contact us for further details.

Sales Progression

It may be necessary to obtain specialist reports or quotes for repairs following a survey, and we are able to oversee this on your behalf using reputable local trades people.
