The nation’s most popular road names based on property sales
Em Morley - October 14, 2020
An analysis by property portal OpenBrix has revealed the nation’s most popular road names based on the highest number of homes sold in the last 12 months.
It looked at sold price records from the Land Registry to calculate which road names appeared most often.
The research shows that with nearly ten thousand transactions, addresses containing the word ‘Saint’ have proved the most popular amongst UK homebuyers. In second place is ‘High’, appearing in the addresses of 4,853 properties. In third place is ‘Church’, at 4,185.
OpenBrix also looked at the most expensive options on this list of popular road names. ‘Whistler’ came top, with the average sold price of just over £6m.
Barrons (£1.8m) is the next most expensive followed by Portugal (£1.474m), Paddington (£1.337m) and Fitzjohns (£1.287m).
Adam Pigott, CEO of OpenBrix, commented: “When it comes to the most popular road names there’s an almost biblical feel in terms of those to have seen the highest level of transactions in the last year.
Our property prayers have certainly been answered in recent months, with the market bouncing back at a phenomenal rate following the initial pandemic lockdown.
Market indicators on all fronts are showing some of the strongest price growth in quite some time and so any fears of a market collapse seem to have been well and truly put to bed.”
