Seymours Independent Estate Agents has announced that it will host the 22nd West Country Property Roadshow at Guildford’s G Live on Saturday 16 May from 10am to 4pm.


The roadshow will showcase hundreds of West Country properties available to those looking to invest or relocate and has been launched in partnership with Webbers, an estate agent covering Devon, Somerset and Cornwall. Many of the properties on sale will be premiered at the roadshow, which means guests will be given priority access to the West Country property market.


With a focus on village, country, coastal and equestrian properties, this year’s roadshow is expected to build on the success of last year’s event, which welcomed hundreds of buyers from across Surrey. The event is free throughout the day and includes refreshments and one-to-ones with experienced members of the Seymours and Webbers teams.


Paul Rickard, Director of Seymours in Guildford, comments: “The economy is the strongest it’s been in some time and more and more people are exploring long-term property investment opportunities. Given the price differential between the South East and West Country markets, investing in a West Country property is arguably more accessible than investing in one locally. The roadshow aims to provide a ‘pop-up’ West Country estate agency service on Surrey soil so that attendees get all the benefits of visiting a West Country estate agent without having to make the journey.”


The roadshow promises to include properties ranging from £200,000 to over £2m. Interest is expected to be high and those planning on attending are being encouraged to notify Seymours in advance via or by calling 01483 576833.


Napoleon Wilcox, Director of Webbers and Head of Webbers Fine & Country (Somerset, Devon, Cornwall, London) started the exhibitions back in 1994. On the 22nd year of the event he adds: “The days of localised property marketing are over. Whilst portals provide access to properties from across every area of the UK, there’s nothing quite like having a face-to-face conversation with experts who know the markets in which the properties they’re responsible for marketing are situated. We’re bringing the very best properties from across three sought after counties in order to make it as easy as possible for those in Guildford and the surrounding areas to see what’s available to them.”
