Why Invest In Surbiton – Top 5 Reasons

  31 Aug 2016

Located on the southern banks of the Thames, Surbiton is a place that offers stylish and functional reasons to choose it over many great areas in the south-west of London or Surrey. If you are looking to invest money in an area, you need reasons to justify the outlay and provide you with a return for your investment. No matter what you are looking to achieve with your investment, here are some strong reasons why you should invest in Surbiton.

There are fantastic homes with options for everyone

When it comes to finding a wide range of property and an area that you want to live in, it is often difficult but Surbiton has it all. There are Victorian homes and cottages on offer and there is an abundance of homes dating back to the 1920s and 30s. If you are looking for affordable flats, you’ll find an array of purposely built properties or converted houses.

There is a strong road and rail infrastructure

One of the most important aspects to consider when looking to invest in property is the road and rail links. A very strong reason to invest in Surbiton is the fact that fast rail links means you can travel to Waterloo Station in just 15 minutes. Kingston may be seen as the larger neighbour but the quirky nature of the rail system ensures Surbiton commuters get into the heart of London in less time. With a good connection to Clapham Junction, which is just 10 minutes away, Surbiton provides you with a wealth of rail travel options with little hassle or fuss.

A reliable range of local schools

For many people, the availability and suitability of local schools is a vital factor in deciding where to invest. Investing in Surbiton makes sense because there is an abundance of “outstanding” schools, by Ofsted standards, in the local area. Primary school options like St Andrew’s and St Mark’s, Christ Church CofE, Our Lady Immaculate RC or Tolworth Infants all excel and will be fantastic options to educate your child or children.

Surbiton provides shopping, entertainment and recreational opportunities

Knowing that the commute and your children’s education is taken care of is important but you also want to live in an area that allows you to relax, enjoy yourself and take care of your shopping requirements. There is a vibrant and growing town centre in Surbiton, combining brand name stores with a range of independent boutiques and outlets.

With cinemas, community centres and leisure centres all found close by, not to mention the social club or exercise benefits that are associated with the sailing clubs on the Thames, Surbiton is the ideal base for active people, no matter what they enjoy doing.

The property price in Surbiton is appealing

Given that the train connection to Waterloo can place you into the heart of London faster than many Underground routes from inside the capital, it is justifiable to compare Surbiton prices with London prices. The average property price in Surbiton comes in at £531,736 which is 8.1% more affordable than the London average of £578,705. When you add in the additional benefits of schooling and a more idyllic pace of life in Surbiton, the benefits of investing in this area become apparent.

If you would feel more comfortable comparing the average property prices in Surbiton with surrounding areas, it ranks strongly. The Surbiton average property price of £531,736 is lower than the average Kingston property price, coming in at £626,572 or the average property price of Thames Ditton, which is £739,509. Surbiton also offers an average property price that is considerably more affordable than the average property price in Teddington, Esher or Ham.

What our clients say about us

  • " I've dealt with some horrible agencies whilst renting in the past but I am glad we had Jezzards as our last. Didn't know that someone so professional and understanding and true to it's word existed in the business. I locked myself out once and they were there in  20 mins to assist. Heating stopped in the night and their out of hours assistance helped sort us out. Any problems or issues, were very promptly and effectively dealt with...I didn't even have to chase them. Our exit was quick, refunds took some time due to overlooked issues, which Victoria Jezzard looked into personally, and all done in 3 days. Dorathy was our handler and she was ace!! "
