The data also shows that regionally, there is some significant variation, with the largest divide in cost between street name prices evident in the South East. Properties in this region located on ‘Lanes’ are £137,145 more expensive than those on ‘Streets.’[1]

In comparison to data released in 2001, all street names have increased in value substantially. For a property on a ‘Lane’ the price has doubled from £123,000 to £246,000. Even ‘Streets’ were found to have risen from £92,000 to £142,000.[1]


Craig Calder, Barclays Director of Mortgages said that the data shows, ‘the last few years have been incredibly buoyant for the housing market and economy, and this is great news for buyers and sellers across the nation.’[1]

‘While this data paints a clear picture of victory for ‘Lanes’ in the competition between properties, it’s interesting to see the varying statistics from around the country and a huge growth in value overall, ‘ Calder continued. ‘If you are considering buying a property, no matter the address, we encourage you to speak to your mortgage advisor on the best options for you,’ he added.[1]
