Spotlight on Chalfont St Peter – our estate agents view. From its roots as an ancient Iron Age village, and later as an Anglo Saxon settlement along the River Misbourne, Chalfont St Peter has grown to become one of the largest villages in the South East with a population of over 13,000.

Seasonality has all but gone and the window of opportunity is not just confined to April or September. It is not as easy to sell a house as it was; in the past you could advertise the property as widely as possible and if it were marketed at the right price it would sell. That is no longer enough. The current property market is somewhat more demanding and requires an enhanced level of skill and local knowledge to achieve the best results.

Spotlight on Staines-upon-Thames – our estate agents view. Staines-upon-Thames is a vibrant riverside town offering residents a lifestyle to match. The town is growing and there are clear signs of infrastructural improvements. Proximity to London, relatively low rents and an increasing number of start-up businesses have put Staines in the spotlight as THE place to be. There has been a significant increase in recent years in new businesses per 10,000 population with a figure significantly above the UK average and the town has established itself as a hotspot for start-up companies, including high-tech businesses attracted to the M4 corridor. A town centre transformation and superb transport links by road, rail and air all add up to a highly attractive proposition.
