  7. 7. Pop culture and the property market

It’s no secret that pop culture has influenced the property market for years. Whether it’s buildings featured in art and literature, celebrity homes, or the settings of famous films, the two worlds have always been very much intertwined.

One pop phenomenon who is no stranger to referencing specific places (and people!) in her songs is Taylor Swift. And judging by the whirlwind of chaos surrounding the ticket sales for her worldwide ‘The Eras Tour’, it’s clear that her influence has grown phenomenally in recent years.

We thought it would be interesting to explore UK street names matching some of her most famous songs and the market value of the properties on each street. Will her growing influence change the value of these homes in the future? We’re looking forward to seeing changing trends in the property market when her UK leg of touring arrives next summer.

Are you…Ready for it?

Five Taylor Swiftie UK street names

Swift Street

Starting it off with zero-subtlety, we’re looking at Swift Street in London, which proves to give interesting insight into the changes in the property market, even in recent years.

The value of each property on Swift’s namesake street mirrors the star’s rise to superstardom, with properties doubling or even tripling in value over the last decade. Talk about a glow up!

Red Street

Swift’s album ‘Red’ includes a song of the same name, with hit songs like ‘I Knew you were Trouble’ and ‘22’. Unsurprisingly, there are a fair number of Red Streets in the UK, with properties ranging in value from £200,000 to £1.2 million!

The lowest last sold price came in at an impressive £115,000 in 2010. This is another example of how the property market has changed over the last few decades, with the same property now valued in the millions!

Will these properties increase further as a result of changing pop culture?

Karma Way

Karma is one of Swift’s more recent hits from the record-breaking album ‘Midnights’. There is actually only one street name featuring the hit, located in Harrow. A range of properties are situated there, valuing between £154,000 - £754,000 (based on around 40 properties).

None of these properties have previously been sold, so these valuations are estimates based on the current market. Perhaps their Taylor-esque titles will entice some fans to buy there in future.

Marjorie Lane

Marjorie is a song from ‘folklore’s’ sister album ‘evermore’, paying homage to Swift’s grandmother and reminiscing about her life. Marjorie Lane, located in Louth, includes properties at an estimated value of £371,000 - £463,000, having last sold a property valued at £219,000 in 2010.

So if you have a grandmother called Marjorie, this might be the perfect street to live on!

Cornelia Street

If those streets weren’t enough to fill your Taylor Swift appetite, the singer-songwriter actually named a song after a street she briefly lived on. ‘Cornelia Street’ from her seventh studio album ‘Lover’, is a fan-favourite, and talks about the relationship that grew there and the significance of that place in her life.

The now-famous street is frequently visited by those curious to see the superstar’s previous home. It has been widely speculated that the star’s old home has increased dramatically in value due to its connection with Swift.

Though this particular street is located in the USA, we did in fact find a street of the same name in the UK, with properties estimated between £75,000 and £133,000. Though it’s not the $18,000,000 town house featured in America’s Cornelia Street, it will be interesting to see if the street gains intrigue or popularity as the star’s global fame continues to increase.

Pop culture and the property market

It’s certainly intriguing to see continued links between pop culture and the property market. Society’s fascination with celebrity influences every aspect of our lives, from what music we listen to, to where we want to live.

As the ticket sales of the Eras Tour continue to dominate pop culture news cycles, it will be interesting to see how fans and ‘laymen’ alike will react when Taylor Swift steps onto UK soil next year. Will properties referencing her famous songs, lyrics and personal memories join her in the spotlight and increase in value as a result? Could these streets join the likes of Baker Street or Penny Lane? Only time will tell.
