Seymours Prestige Homes in Godalming: Is luxury home search all about location?


Perhaps the most well-known mantra in the property industry is location, location, location. However, you may wonder how relevant it is in today’s luxury property market.

Our Prestige Homes experts assist many buyers with successful property searches across the Godalming area, ranging from £1m through to £10m and upwards. Here they share their thoughts on the importance of location.


Property value

Godalming is a highly sort-after area to live and this is reflected in property prices. However, homes situated in the most attractive locations will always hold more value. Buyers will always take this into consideration, as purchasing a property in a desirable area may result in greater profits when they decide to move on.

The neighbourhood

Buyers at the top end of the market don’t tend to compromise when it comes to the neighbourhood. They will take many factors into consideration including appearance, road noise, and any future plans for development. However, neighbourhoods can change over time and become more desirable, and some buyers are happy to move to an area with good potential.

Lifestyle opportunities

There is an abundance of local amenities in Godalming and across the wider area. Buyers are attracted to the historic market town because of its wonderful High Street and the fantastic lifestyle opportunities on offer. For sports enthusiasts there are a selection of golf courses, equestrian facilities, countryside walks, fitness clubs, cycle trails and more. The town also boasts a variety of high-end restaurants and gastro pubs.
