Managing Director of One77 Mortgages, Alastair McKee,commented “There we have it, if you want to buck the Brexit market blues you have a better chance of doing so if you live on one of these popular road names.

“While a road name isn’t the be all and end all, for many aspirational homeowners. it can have an impact on their decision to buy, in the same way a not so desirable name can be off-putting.

“Whether it brings a greater feeling of exclusivity, or eludes to a better position than surrounding areas, a road name can make a big difference and those selling across the most popular ones should consider this when researching the market and hosting potential buyers.

In the current market climate, it’s vital to utilise every unique aspect your property possess in order to get a sale over the line.”
