What does your address say about your property price?
Properties in the UK on ‘streets’ average £142,375, on ‘lanes’ £245,906, on ‘ways’ they are priced at an average of £218,742 followed by ‘road’ averaging £212,717.
Understandably it can depend on where in the UK you live, with a ‘close’ being the most valuable in Scotland and a ‘lane’ being the most valuable in England at an average price of £161,869. In Wales, homes on a ‘lane’ were double the price of a home on a ‘street’. Properties in Northern Ireland were more expensive when situated on a ‘road’.
However, London’s most valuable properties are on ‘streets’ costing an average of £566,406 and recent research by Zoopla found that the costliest streets in London were all in the borough of Kensington. It is expected that house prices in London will hit £1m by 2030.
Properties with ‘street’ in their title are found to be more than £100,000 cheaper than those with lane. Across the UK, homes on ‘lanes’ are typically priced at £245,906 whereas homes on ‘streets’ are typically priced at £142,374. Although, this can vary across regions.
Lanes are generally 22 per cent dearer than the typical house price of £201,246, according to Barclays Mortgages. In 2001 the price for a home on a lane was averaged at £123,000, 14 years later it has now doubled.
