Many local residents regard Upminster as being the perfect commuter town. It's sandwiched between idyllic rural Essex and the conveniences and bustle of the capital. However, Upminster town has plenty to offer in its own right, too. The town offers a wide variety of independent shops as well as its own longestablished department store, Roomes, which opened in the 19th century.
There's a strong community spirit here, which is perhaps why Upminster is known to be popular with second-time buyers. Young families flock here to enjoy a slightly quieter way of life than you expect in central London, with more spacious housing also. There’s also a breadth of family-friendly activities. For example, when you need to stretch your legs and enjoy some countryside, visit the lake at Parklands or a wander around the nature reserve at Ingrebourne Valley.
All of the primary schools in Upminster are rated 'good' by Ofsted, except for St Mary's Lane where the infant school is found to be outstanding with a good junior school.
Upminster is well connected with an excellent local bus network connecting to nearby Romford. Drivers will also appreciate the proximity to J29 of the M25. If you need to get into London, then Upminster has a Zone 6 tube station on the District Line. It'll take around 45 minutes to reach the City from here, but faster train services are available to Fenchurch Street in around 25 minutes.
Our estate agency in Upminster goes the extra mile to market your property. We offer a comprehensive marketing package including:
However, we also offer our one-of-a-kind Balgores Boost service using advanced machine learning technology so that your property listing is tweaked and optimised 24/7 to appeal to the buyers who are searching at the time. This means that your listing will target both passive and active buyers, resulting in a 27% reduction in the time to sell compared to the national average. Similarly, it's also proven to be 10 times more effective than alternative social media or digital marketing strategies.

Yes, Balgores offers a free, no obligation market appraisal of your property. Whether you’re at the beginning of your vendor journey, or you’ve experienced a setback, we will have an honest discussion with you about the current market value of your home.
We can either visit you in person at your property to discuss what price we believe you should list your property at and the value of offer you could attract. Alternatively, if you’d like quick access to raw figures, then we also offer an instant valuation online. You will answer some basic questions about your property, such as your address and the number of bedrooms to generate an accurate figure if you would like to list your home.
In both cases, our estate agents in Upminster will be on-hand to answer any queries you have about selling and offer our professional guidance at this stage of the process.
