When buying a home there’s a lot of things to consider. Location, for one, will play a huge role in how much a person is willing to pay. Other considerations may include the state of the property, as well as factors such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. However, it may be that there’s another thing to think about when it comes to investing in a property – and that’s the address. Latest research by national fast sale estate agent Springbok Properties has analysed property sale records by the listed address number, in order to work out which is the most valuable.

The data – from the Land Registry Price Paid Records 2018 – spans last year, and looks at house numbers as well as flat numbers.

Most expensive house numbers

According to Springbok Properties, it seems as though a single digit home is less likely to make as much money compared to one with two digits or more.

Their research states that just one single digit number was spotted in the top 50 most expensive house numbers this year.

This was Number One, and it ranked at 43 in the property company’s list of top 50 most expensive house numbers.

Meanwhile, Number 713 came in top, with this dwelling boasting an average sold price of £612,847.

In second place was Number 711 and its average price of £580,643.

Next door’s property, Number 709, was also pretty pricey, being the third most expensive – due to the average sold price of £508,833.

Most expensive flat numbers

Meanwhile, it seems that those purchasing flats are also more likely to pay more should they buy a place which has a number in the hundreds.

The analysis showed two single digit numbers ranked in the top 50 when it came to the most expensive flat numbers.

These were Number One and Number Six, with the former taking sixth place with an average £520,808 sold price, while the latter came in at 27 on the list due to the average sold price being £385,060.

And, it seems that the priciest addresses in terms of flat numbers are those with the digits 500.

Founder and CEO of Springbok Properties, Shepherd Ncube, said of the research: “A property’s value is determined on a whole host of factors, but you would be surprised about the influence a number can have on how much a buyer is willing to pay.

“For most, it simply doesn’t matter, but some buyers will pay over the odds for a particular number for sentimental reasons or avoid a property altogether due to superstition.

“Previously the prestige of owning the number one property on a street was highly valued amongst buyers, but as the way we live and the type of properties we live in has evolved, this is clearly no longer the case.

“In this day and age a shortage of space and our tendency to build up, not out, means those higher numbers closer to the top of a development are now more desirable.”
