Vickery Holman, which has offices in Truro, Plymouth and Exeter, is launching its 60-page report, ‘The Market 2013-14’, with a series of seminars across Cornwall and Devon at the beginning of February.

Full details of the report will be revealed at the events, which take place at the Alverton Manor in Truro on Tuesday, February 4 before heading to the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth (February 5) and finishing at The Royal Clarence in Exeter (February 6).

Mark Pellow, managing director for Vickery Holman, said: “Last year we said that the property market had bottomed out and that 2013 would see improvement and we were right.

“This year we are continuing to feel that optimism for growth, but in the report we highlight that it is now more important than ever to know your market and to have the right professional advice.”

Mike Oldrieve, director and head of investment property, said: “After five years of reporting the decline of the UK Property investment market, we can at long last highlight increased activity through 2013.”

The report, which specifically targets the Devon and Cornwall markets, focuses on the main commercial sectors of industrial, office and retail, as well as specialist reports on investment, development, residential, property management, education, licensed premises and environmental factors as well as other topical areas.

PDF copies of The Market 2013-14 will be available to download from the Vickery Holman websites after the seminars on February 6.

Limited spaces for the seminars are still available and should be booked by contacting Kate Gordon on 01752 234127.
