How much is your home worth? Find out with Castle’s free online valuation calculator

Leading independent Swindon estate agent, Castles Residential Sales & Lettings has added a FREE instant online valuation service to its website.

Available at, the online valuation will tell you how much your home is worth for sale and to let – and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Between May 2011 and May 2016, property prices across Swindon rose by 23 per cent. In the same period, the area saw a 78 per cent increase in property transactions.

Mark Noble, founder and managing director of Castles, said: “Many people are unaware of how much their home may be worth because prices have risen dramatically in recent years. Despite some challenging economic times, Swindon is still performing really well. It is – and always has been – a great place to invest.

“Interest rates came down even further this summer, so there’s never been a better time to move home or rent your property out. Even if you’re not thinking about moving, it’s worth keeping track of the value of your property. It is, after all, the biggest asset most of us have.”

The addition of Castle’s free instant online valuation service follows the recent launch of the company’s revamped website and modern day auction service.


Castles Residential Sales & Lettings is sponsoring nutritionist Jamie Richards, who is raising money for SMASH Youth Project, the Swindon youth mentoring charity.

The company, one of Swindon’s leading independent estate agents, recently handed over a cheque for £200, as part of a £1250 sponsorship, to Jamie as he took a break from training for the legendary Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race™ in May 2017.

The five-day adventure covers 300 kilometres and climbs 16,000 metres through the wild, trackless, remote and mountainous terrain of Wales from north to south. It holds ‘toughest race’ status, being classed as the toughest five-day mountain running race in the world.

Mark Noble, managing director of Castles, said: “SMASH Youth Project fills an enormous gap in the lives of vulnerable young people in Swindon. Where many institutions exclude these people, SMASH Youth Project is there showing belief in their potential and providing support and guidance. Their contribution – which they give freely – to these people is invaluable both for the individuals who benefit directly and the wider community. So, we’re delighted at Castles to support Jamie’s efforts and, by extension, SMASH Youth Project.”

Jamie is a nutrition, health and performance consultant. He works with individuals, organisations, teams and athletes across the south west, helping them regain health, optimise their weight and boost their performance.

He said: “I’ve always enjoyed getting involved with local charities and as my 50th birthday approaches, I wanted a challenge to celebrate this.”

Jamie continues “My partner, Tracy Ellis, has been a SMASH mentor for some time and I’ve seen the fantastic direct impact that they have. We’ve set a deliberately high target of £30,000 over the next 10 months, that I hope reflects the huge effort that’s going into attempting a terrifying race like this, under the banner SMASH YOUR GOALS. But more importantly, we’d like to raise awareness of the tremendous benefits of mentoring within the local community, it’s such a rewarding experience. “

SMASH Youth Project has been running for over 16 years. It gives young people aged 9-19 years the chance to become everything they can be through mentoring. Since 1999, the charity has helped over 1,000 young people transform their lives.

He has tremendous enthusiasm for the business and a wealth of experience. In an era where people change jobs more often than ever, we value Chris’s loyalty very highly. Here’s to the next ten years.”
