Colby Short, Founder and CEO of GetAgent.co.uk, commented: “The housing market is booming across England and Wales and while demand is high across the board, it seems that church related road names are commanding the greatest level of buyer interest.
“Of course, the fragmented nature of the property market means that while these road names are the most popular, transaction levels and property values differ drastically from one region to the next.
“The driving factor behind this popularity is no doubt due to the strong history of the church within England and Wales rather than a particular desire to live on a church related street name in the modern age.
“While many churches may have now vanished, it’s likely that in a previous time they were the focal point of a town or village and so those road names to have held their reference today are likely to be central, close to amenities, and therefore popular amongst homebuyers.”
