Baldock House Prices vs Baldock Rents since 2006

The Baldock housing market is a fascinating beast and has been particularly interesting since the Credit Crunch of 2008/9 with the subsequent property market crash. There is currently some talk of a ‘property bubble’ nationally as Brexit seems to be the ‘go-to’ excuse for every issue in the Country. Upon saying that, looking at both…

The Baldock Bank of Mum and Dad Lent £847k Last Year

Baldock’s £25,858,560 “Rentirement” Property Market Time Bomb

The truth is that these Baldock people are…

  Talk to many Baldock 20 something’s, where home ownership has looked but a vague dream, many of them have been vexatious towards the Baby Boomer generation and their pushover ‘easy go lucky’ walk through life; jealous of their free university education with grants, their eye watering property windfalls, their golden final salary pensions and…
