For homeowners across names including Easter and Palm, current market conditions aren’t as sweet. Both were home to below average house prices of £213,298 and £199,803 respectively.

Founder and CEO of Springbok Properties, Shepherd Ncube said, “The performance of the property market across these Easter-related road names will have no doubt left a sweet taste in the mouth of their homeowners and sellers with prices largely climbing way above average.

Across the nation, there are plenty of these overperforming pockets despite wider market conditions and while property value isn’t based on a road name alone, at least those on the hunt for a home this Easter weekend will have a good starting point to work with.”
