  1. Chelmsford Commuter belt

    Chelmsford is part of the London commuter belt and if you are looking to buy or rent property in Chelmsford you need to do your homework. With its city status firmly in place and with reviews of the city improving with time this market town has now taken its place in the spotlight over the past few years.

    Chelmsford over the past five-year has seen an 18 per cent price growth but it still has properties to suit most budgets. Part of the reason Chelmsford has had such a steady rise is its great transport links. Rush hour trains take about half an hour to reach Liverpool Street. And when the Elizabeth Line is fully open in 2019, commuters will be able to use it to easily access the West End, Canary Wharf and Heathrow, via nearby Shenfield Station.

    In recent years 25 per cent of buyers moving to Chelmsford work in either finance or insurance. This easy commute to the city guarantees a strong flow of City workers looking for family-sized homes in and around a city that is growing in culture and popularity.

    Chelmsford commuting really works for families because of its great schools. King Edward VI Grammar is one of the top secondary schools in the UK. It is boys-only until the sixth form, so parents of younger girls opt for the excellent Chelmsford County High. There are also first-rate sports facilities (from diving to ice skating). For the travellers, Stansted Airport is just 20 minutes by car perfect for those weekends away.
