Between Thrapston and Rushden, the small market town of Raunds sits on the southern side of the Nene Valley amongst arable farmland.

Being located a short distance off the main A14 and A45 trunk roads, it enjoys an excellent road communications infrastructure. Nearby rail connections are provided by East Midlands Trains from Wellingborough and Kettering.

With historical records dating back to the Romans and Anglo Saxons, modern-day Raunds built up amongst the local boot and shoe factories. Through the industry’s decline in the 80’s and 90’s, the factories were turned into stylish residential developments, while the outlying areas are attracting service and distribution companies to the many out of town warehousing sites. Also, being in the ‘North Londonshire’ region it is enjoying the benefits of inward investment. Raunds is currently a destination for those who want to take advantage of its good educational facilities and attractive house prices. Like the neighbouring towns and villages, having rode out the 2008 downturn well, the area’s property market remains very bouyant.

Simpson & Partners in Raunds are the locality’s No.1 Estate Agents. We are currently seeking more properties to meet the consistent high demand of purchasers and tenants looking to buy or rent in the area. Quality homes remain in great demand, with Buy-to-Let investors, ex-renters and first-timers taking advantage of new mortgage products coming to the market from our colleagues in Simpson Financial.

The £200K-£400K sector is extremely busy and Simpson’s pro-active ‘Fresh’ approach and established track record in selling these homes is shown with our market-leading share in Raunds, Stanwick and Chelveston.

So if you’re looking to Buy, Sell, Let or Rent in or around Raunds, you can be sure that Simpson & Partners are the agents who will go the extra mile to help you succeed.
