Guildford's Housing Prices Still On the March!

19/06/2018
Although London's house prices in many of its boroughs have either levelled off or been falling since around July 2017, Guildford is one of many areas in England and Wales where prices are still rising.

Guildford, popularly considered to be Surrey's county town, continues to be a highly sought-after place to live on account of a combination of its great transport links (London Waterloo is only 40 minutes away by direct train and the M3 is easily accessible), agreeable open spaces (such as Stoke Park and Shalford Park), excellent shopping and great housing options.

The town is set to be the beneficiary of a £150m development scheme which involves creating a new station building, £25m of station improvements, 438 homes, office space and a "radically-enhanced station environment", following five years of engagement with the council and residents.
