The nation’s most popular road names for homebuyers

By |Published On: 25th August 2020|

This article is an external press release originally published on the Landlord News website, which has now been migrated to the Just Landlords blog.

The latest research from, the estate agent comparison site, reveals the most popular road names based on property sales across England and Wales.

Looking at the road names with the highest number of transactions in 2020, GetAgent found that the most popular road names were High Street, Station Road, and Main Street. This was determined by looking at the number of property sales so far this year.

Also, high up in the rankings were Church Road, London Road, Church Street, Park Road, Church Lane, Victoria Road, and Main Road.

Colby Short, Founder and CEO of, commented: “When it comes to the most popular road names and types, this is almost certainly influenced by a higher number of ‘High Streets’ and ‘Roads’ being available across the UK property market, and they top the table by quite some margin.

“However, it’s interesting to see that when it comes to the price paid by homebuyers, names that carry an air of exclusivity or prestige such as ‘The Street’, ‘Hill’ or ‘Garden’, command a far higher price than ‘Terrace’, for example.

“This is ultimately down to the area itself, however, some buyers will still consider a road name as a reason to either offer above the odds or to keep on searching.  

“In today’s market, living along one of these road names could be just the ticket if you’re looking to secure a better price when compared to a similar property a few streets down.”
