FANCY living in Crotch Crescent? Or bunking up in Titty Ho?
Well be warned – living on a street with a more “unusual” name could mean your FOUR TIMES less likely to sell your home when compared to neighbouring streets.
Online estate agent HouseSimple.com looked at house sales over the past 20 years on some of the rudest-named streets.
Dumbwomans Lane in Rye has four times fewer sales when compared to neighbouring and more conventionally named Station Road.
Spiders Lane in Exmouth and Lickers Lane in Prescott also had four times fewer house sales compared to Lime Grove and Parkwood Road.
Unsurprisingly, not many want to live in Loveless Gardens in Gateshead – since 1997 just FOUR homes have been sold.
But it seems Brits do have a cheeky sense of humour when it comes to Crotch Crescent and Titty Ho.
Sales on Crotch Crescent in Marston 15 per cent higher than in nearby Derwent Avenue.
In Titty Ho, sales are 34 per cent better when compared with neighbouring Wellington Road.
Alex Gosling of HouseSimple said: “Buyers will often pay more to live on an Avenue or Crescent versus a Street or Road.
“But the actual name of a street could also have a significant impact on the value of your house.
“An unusual street name shouldn’t be the reason you don’t buy a property, particularly if it’s your dream house, but just bear in mind that you’re going to be reminded daily of the street you live on, so you need to be comfortable with the name if it’s a little out of the ordinary.”
