January 21st 2022

When it comes to making the most of 2022, it is perfectly natural people will look to make some changes. If you are keen to move home soon, you need to consider a lot of factors.

We believe that finding a place where you feel settled and at home is essential. This is why Intercounty is more than happy to say Stansted is a good place to live.

Stansted is a great option for many households

There is no denying that Stansted Mountfitchet is a place that appeals to commuters. Even with remote working being more popular these days, this might not always be the case. Therefore, anyone looking for a home location that provides them with the best of both worlds will appreciate what life has to offer.

With fast and affordable connections to London Liverpool Street Station, this is a local area that ensures your commute is manageable.

Of course, another reason people love living here is being so close to the airport. If you travel a lot for business or pleasure, you will love being situated so close to the fourth largest in the whole of the country.

You will find there is a great deal of history in the village, and this means there is a more sedate pace of life when it comes to enjoying what Stansted has to offer. There is a viable sense of community spirit, which is very helpful for people looking to take things at a more casual speed.
