Who’s the author?

Hello.  My name is John Gallagher and along with my wife Michelle, I run JDG Estate Agents in Lancaster and Morecambe.

Owner and Director at JDG Estate Agents and author of the Lancaster Property Blog.  John has been advising Lancaster landlord for over 28 years.  He is also a landlord himself with a portfolio of properties.


This blog is all about what is happening in the local property market.  It’s primarily aimed at landlords.   Together we will look closely at the change in property prices and the best places for you to invest.

We’ll focus on specific areas.  Sometimes even on specific streets to see exactly what is happening locally.  We’ll see what difference local employment makes and the benefits of buying an investment close to the hospital or university, for example.

This blog is totally unbiased as I search the market, highlighting the best investment deals out there from a whole range of estate agents across the town.

We are here to help you.  If you find a house that you are interested in buying and you want a second opinion regarding its value and rental yield, ask me.

You’ll also find our latest articles printed in the Lancaster Guardian and Morecambe Visitor Property section.

You can reach me on 01524 843322 or email me at john@jdg.co.uk.
