We take great pride in knowing so much about the local property market, but we know there is a wide range of opinions. We take the time to stay in touch with reviews of Baldock, and we have checked out the OneDome site’s take on our local area.

Baldock receives a positive rating

An overall score of six out of ten is a positive score, but we appreciate it doesn’t immediately strike you as a fantastic score. However, we have looked closer at the individual findings, and we appreciate there are some reasons as to why Baldock isn’t ranked higher on the factors that OneDome deems to be important.

The thing is, we don’t think some of these features are too important for buyers looking to buy a home in or around Baldock.

One of the criteria used by OneDome is lifestyle, and this takes into account local bars, clubs and entertainment options. Baldock received a score of one out of ten!

People enjoy the quiet life in Baldock

The thing is, many households who buy property in Baldock do so because they want to avoid areas with a lot of nightlife and social activity in them. There is nothing wrong with areas that are bustling with entertainment and dining options, but they aren’t for everyone.

Therefore, the overall score achieved by Baldock is dragged down by this factor, which isn’t really relevant to local buyers. You’ll find that Baldock achieves a good score in more relevant areas.

There are plenty of good schooling options in and around Baldock

There is no denying the importance of good schools for buyers. The presence of well-regarded schools attracts buyers, creates demand for property and it even increases property prices. You’ll be pleased to know OneDome gave Baldock a score of eight out of ten for education.

Hartsfield Junior Mixed and Infant School, Brandles School, St John Roman Catholic Primary School, The Knights Templar School and St Mary's Junior Mixed School are all well-regarded schools for families in Baldock.

If you would like to discuss the impact of local schools on the Baldock housing market, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to assist you.
