House prices are on the rise again and one area of West Surrey in particular where homeowners will benefit from the increased value of their home is Farnham.
Research by Experian has found that three to four bedroom properties in Farnham typically cost up to of 90 per cent more than smaller properties in the same area.
Farnham is a historic market town with a mixture of high street brands and smaller independent retailers, monthly farmer’s markets and a great range of amenities including a leisure centre, several parks, an abbey, castle, museums and galleries.
Just 35 miles from London with good links to Guildford and Winchester via the Farnham bypass, Farnham is popular with families who are attracted to the area by its strong transport links and excellent schools.
The popularity of the area and the demand for three and four bedroom houses is such that it pushes up house prices and creates a competitive market place for those looking to move to the area or take their next step on the property ladder.
An even faster acceleration of house prices is expected in the coming months, so for those looking to move to Farnham it makes sense to do so sooner rather than later.
Nicholas Eaton, Director of Seymours Farnham, comments: “Farnham is definitely one of the jewels in Surrey’s crown and is a wonderful place to live and work. The area is home to some of the most impressive properties in the region, many steeped in the Georgian history you’ll find throughout Farnham with several classified as listed buildings.
“The large number of families in the area give it a strong community feel and means children are very well catered for, with a range of activities such as live music in Gostrey Meadow every Sunday throughout the summer months, holiday clubs, sporting clubs and organised walks for families.
“For family days out there’s also Frensham Ponds, Alice Holt Forest and Birdworld. It’s easy to see why Farnham continues to increase in popularity as the ideal place to live.”
