Hi and thank you for visiting this blog. On this blog, I will talk about what is happening in the Doncaster property market, even looking at specific streets or housing estates. At other times, I will post what I consider decent buy to let deals. Some will be on the market with me (as I also sell property), but others will be on the market with other agents in Doncaster. I like to look at the whole of market and give you, what I consider the best investment opportunities.
If you see a potential deal, and want a second opinion, without hesitation, email the Rightmove link to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will always give you my honest opinion on the property and its investment potential.

Well last week’s article “The Unfairness of the Doncaster Baby Boomer’s £2,349,210,000 windfall?” caused a stir. In it we looked at a young family member of mine who was arguing the case that Millennials (those born after 1985) were suffering on the back of the older generation in Doncaster....Read more →
Recently I was having a chat with one of my second cousins at a big family get-together. The last time I had seen them their children were in their early teens. Now their children are all grown up, have partners, dogs and children. Wow – how time flies! So,...Read more →
On several occasions over the last few months, in my Doncaster Property Blog, I predicted that the rate of rental inflation (i.e. how much rents are rising by) had eased over the last year. At the same time I felt that in some parts of the UK rents had...Read more →
In November 2015, George Osborne disclosed plans to restrain the buy-to-let (BTL) market, implying its growing attractiveness was leaving aspiring first time buyers contesting with landlords for the restricted number of properties on the market.
