Scary street names don't spook buyers

Halloween is big business and the UK is projected to spend over £1bn with more than 56% of the population taking part in the fun. Gen Z is expected to spend the most with 87% planning to spend £46 each.

Some places are spookier than others and fortunately, scary names haven't put buyers off in those places. Roads named 'Axe Lane' have averaged £795k this year, closely followed by 'Bloodgate Hill' (£668k) and 'Bones Lane' (£638k).

Nor do ghosts affect price growth! The most haunted village in England, Pluckley, has seen average house prices double over the last ten years. Source: #Dataloft, Land Registry (12 months to October 2023), Finder
