The Easter road names where homesellers could be quids in
Ahead of the Easter weekend, national estate agent Keller Williams UK, has revealed which Easter road names are home to the highest average sold prices and which are the ones to avoid.
The market analysis looked at the average price of homes sold across 10 Easter-related road names over the last 12 months, as well as how they compared to the current average across England and Wales.
The research shows that Bonnet is the best Easter road name for a boost in property prices, with homes on road names including Bonnet selling for an average of £440,588 over the last year. An eggcelent 68% higher than the current national average of £261,596.
Homesellers on roads containing Bunny could also be in for an Easter property price bounce, with the average sold price coming in at £350,000 over the last year, 34% higher than the national average.
Church was the only other Easter-related road name to come in above the national average. Properties on roads with Church in the name have sold for an average of £269,950 over the last year, 3% higher than the wider average across England and Wales.
Unfortunately for those living on the rest of the Easter road names analysed by Keller Williams UK, average sold prices in the last year have dipped below the national average.
Basket has been the worst-performing, with an average sold price of £137,250 coming in -48% below average.
Spring (-16%), Chick (-16%) and Daffodil (-12%) have also seen sold prices average well below the national average.
Lent (-6%), Egg (-4%) and Lamb (-3%) have seen slightly higher average sold prices but still come in less than the wider national average.
CEO of Keller Williams UK, Ben Taylor, commented:
“Those swapping their Easter egg hunt for a house hunt could do much worse than looking across some of the best performing Easter road names, with the top two, in particular, home to much higher sold prices than the wider market.
However, whatever road name you happen to live on, the good news is your property could fetch just that little bit more over the coming months. Not only are we entering what is traditionally the busiest time of year for the property market, but buyer demand remains bolstered due to the stamp duty holiday extension.
As a result, we can expect a larger number of buyers fighting it out for the stock available on the market and with the addition of a stamp duty saving in their back pocket, they’re likely to offer more to secure the home they want.”
