Did you know your house name can affect the property value?

Have you ever considered whether the name of your house makes a difference to its asking price?

According to Michael Nettleton, sales and marketing director here at Nock Deighton, it could do ….

“A lot of people don’t even consider the name of their house when they are considering selling, but it can actually have some influence over buyers,” he says.

“Statistics show that at least one house called The Cottage sells every day, and properties called The Cottage have an asking price of 50 per cent more than the average.

“As estate agents, we would always include the name of a house on the particulars because it creates interest and a certain feel for the property.

“Many of our fellow agents say that generally, houses with names typically generate more enquiries, and we would agree with that.”

So the big question then, what should you name your house (If it hasn’t got one already) to attract those buyers?

“Keep it simple,” is Michael’s advice. “Don’t go for anything too imaginative or personal to you - it needs to have universal appeal.

“From our experience, it’s names like The Coach House, The Lodge, The Barn, Sunnyside, Rose Cottage, Orchard House, The Bungalow and, as previously mentioned, The Cottage, that do well.”
