Under the expertise of our long-established partner, Mark D’Costa, you’ll be in safe hands as you begin the search for your dream home in the area. Staines houses for sale are in high demand due in part to the enviable proximity to London and vibrant lifestyle. With a wide range of properties available, our passionate Staines team are excited to be able to offer you dedicated, unrivalled support in the area.
Having grown exponentially in the last 30 years within the Surrey area, the Staines office will be our 20th branch. Our team understands the importance of community, and as we’ve grown to be the largest independent estate agents in the area, we’ve continued to ensure our customers and beloved county stays at the very heart of all we do.
In this article, we’ll be sharing a little more insight into this latest addition to the Seymours brand as we speak with Mark D’Costa. The local team will also be highlighting why Staines is such a fantastic choice for property hunters to explore – whether you are a first-time buyer, a family looking to settle outside the capital or want to retire to the affluent area.
Staines houses for sale: Why move to the area?
A bustling shopping hub set in a picturesque scene, Staines is a stunning commuter town – but, it’s so much more than that too! Full of character and history, there are so many reasons why it’s a great place to live. From its transportation links and green spaces to its cheaper property prices, Staines has been hailed as the number one town for business creation – even beating London to the top spot. It’s certainly one of the livliest towns outside the capital. Here are just a few of the reasons our Seymours team love the area:
Prices in Staines-upon-Thames have risen by 22% over the past five years compared to just 17% across Surrey and 20% in London. It’s a highly desirable area, ideally situated on the commuter belt to London whilst the town retains its charm and sits just on the River Thames. Yet, this isn’t to say there are no affordable properties available for first-time buyers in the area. When searching for Staines houses for sale, you’ll be met with an array of property types; from charming semi-detached homes in the suburbs to stunning flats overlooking the river.
There are also several new property developments currently under construction with many more earmarked for the coming years. If you crave a slower paced lifestyle outside of the town centre opt for Egham, Wraysbury, Stanwell, Stanwell Moor, Ashford or Laleham. Our experienced team in the newly opened Staines branch will be able to help you assess your options and work with you to find the perfect property.
Open green spaces are a major attraction for areas outside of London, and Staines has a great collection of countryside. For many, this is the main reason for their move to outside the capital. So, what are a few of our favourite spots in the area?
Colne Vallery Park. Covering more than 40 square miles of countryside and found just outside the town centre, the park features farmland, woodland and water. In fact, you’ll find more than 60 lakes in the whole area so, there is plenty to explore! We recommend a self-guided waterside walk, ideal with a little picnic in tow.
Runnymede Pleasure Grounds. Just outside of Staines, Runnymede is one of Surrey’s most popular beauty spots with hundreds flocking to the area all year round. You’ll find dog walkers, families tucking into picnics and children burning off energy in the playground – it’s enjoyable for all. And out top tip? Cross the river and discover the 2,500 year old tree, the oldest in the National Trust’s care!
The town’s close proximity to London is yet another attraction of Staines-upon-Thames – you can be in the centre in just 35 minutes by train. The proximity to the capital similarly attracted Roman inhabtants hundreds of years ago and fast forward to today, it’s once again a popular choice for commuters.
Enjoy the open green spaces and slower pace of life as you escape the hustle and bustle of the capital. Plus, you can escape for a long weekend away easily with Staines also being the closest town to Heathrow airport – it’s the ideal launchpad for keen jet-setters.

From little acorns form mighty oaks
Prior to the branch formally opening, the team already had their first property on the books via a recommendation; a 2 bedroom, semi-detached bungalow with an asking price of £450,000 was listed on behalf of an elderly resident who had recently moved into a care home. The Seymours team hosted an open day with several potential house hunters taking interest in the property – from young professionals to an elderely couple looking to downsize.
From this one open day, we received 4 offers and the best final was well in excess of the original asking price. Staines is a highly desirable area yet it’s vital those with Staines houses for sale partner with an established estate agency that can market your property correctly to appeal to the right house hunter for your home. Ultimately, this will allow you to secure the best final offer – and, complete faster than you would have otherwise.
