Spooky Streets: What's the cost to live on a Halloween named street?

    The spookiest night of the year is almost here: Halloween brings with it blood, witches, vampires, zombies and, of course, sweets.

    But not only are these words common halloween tropes, they are also the basis of many street names up and down the land.

    But which of these terrifying streets is the most expensive?

    Based on price paid data from Land Registry over the past 12 months, our analysis shows the most valuable Halloween related street name is ‘Grave’, with an average sold price of £405,000. This is 53% above the national average of £264,244.

    For big fans of Halloween, having dreams of having a spooky sounding street address is still a possibility. There are many other potential Halloween sounding addresses across the UK. Could you live on one of the 15 'All Hallows' roads across the country? or on Pumpkin Hill? or perhaps you could make a home in Spiders Lane?

    Street names featuring the word ‘Lantern’ command the second-highest average house price at £395,000. Which is 49% higher than the national average.

    For those people who are looking to buy a property on a road with the bleak sounding ‘Dead’ in the name, can expect to pay 15% more than the national average.

    Whilst homes on roads containing any of the words ‘Trick’, ‘Sweet’ or ‘Hell,’ command a 14% premium.

    Other spooky street names, such as addresses with the word ‘Witch’ (9%), ‘Spider’ (8%), and ‘Broom’ (3%) have also seen homes sell for more than the national average.

    But it’s not all bad news if you’re looking for a Halloween related home this autumn. Roads with Night (-1%), ‘Crow’ (-2%), Blood (-19%), and ‘October’ (-63%) have all seen sold prices come in below the national average in the last year.

    Co-founder and CEO of GetAgent.co.uk, Colby Short, said, “Although the celebration of Halloween as we know it has largely been adopted from our friends across the pond, it’s become a firm favourite for many and really marks the start of the winter festive season.

    It also marks the start of the winter market rush whereby homebuyers and sellers across the nation set their eyes on completing before Christmas. So we can expect the manic market conditions of the last year to continue for the next few months at least.”
