These are the Valentine-themed road names that could raise or lower the value of your home
Research by estate agent Barrows and Forrester has revealed which Valentine’s Day themed road names are showing the love for homeowners with above-average sold prices.
Analysis of sold prices over the last year found roads with ‘kissing’ in the name had an average sold price of £1.2 million over the last year, 356 per cent higher than the national average of £261,897.
Homes on roads with Cupid in the name went for an average of £293,000, 12 per cent higher than the national average.
Love and Sweet, such as Love Street in Sheffield and Sweet Street in Leeds, also performed well with above-average sold prices.
James Forrester, Barrows and Forrester managing director, said: “We’re certainly a nation obsessed with finding the best bricks and mortar partner but our efforts in the property market can often result in a love-hate relationship.
“While we all tend to love our homes, buying one can be far from smooth sailing and is enough to test anyone’s commitment.
“There’s also no guarantee a Valentine’s Day-themed road name will show the love where higher sold prices are concerned, although a property purchase should always be done based on personality rather than for the money.”
