Which areas in Stoke-on-Trent are most and least likely to experience a mortgage crisis.
The current interest rate of 5% is the highest in 15 years.
A recent increase in mortgage interest rates to 5% has revealed where in Stoke-on-Trent individuals are most likely to experience a mortgage crisis.
The most recent interest rate announcement—the 13th straight increase—came during a week in which the national average for two-year fixed mortgage rates exceeded 6%.
As a result, thousands of Stoke-on-Trent homeowners will experience agony, but many locals won’t pay it any attention. And the reason for that is that residences are typically owned outright in most places.
Trentham East in Stoke-on-Trent has the largest proportion of residences that are owned outright, at 52%, with 38% being mortgage-owned.
Hanford & Trentham West and Meir Park, where half of the residences are completely owned, come in second and third, respectively. The proportion of locals in such localities who have mortgages on their homes was 31 and 38, respectively.
Longton East, with a comfortable 43 percent, has the greatest proportion of homeowners with mortgages. But even there, with 44% of the total, there were slightly more outright owners.
The next greatest percentage of mortgages was found in Trentham East and Goldenhill & Sandyford (36%). In the latter, there were 13% more mortgaged homeowners than outright owners.
