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.

As we go headlong into 2018, I believe UK interest rates will stay low, even with the additional 0.25% increase that is expected in May or June. That rise will add just over £20 to the typical £160,000 tracker mortgage, although with 57.1% of all borrowers on fixed rates,...Read more →
