Pancake property prices 114% higher than the national average

A study by GetAgent.co.uk has shown how the nation’s property sellers could be left with a particularly sweet taste in their mouth this Shrove Tuesday, should they be looking to sell across one of the country’s pancake-related road names. 

GetAgent analysed sold price data across England and Wales based on residential transactions to have taken place over the last year, with the findings revealing that on average, a pancake-related property will set you back £330,275 - 15% more than the wider national average. 

Most profitable pancake-related road names


Top of the stack is Pancake, with property prices across roads such as Pancake Lane in Hemel Hempstead selling for a flipping huge £617,500 on average over the last year - 114% higher than the national average. 

Milk is the next most profitable pancake-related road name with an average sold price of £415,000 in the last year across streets such as Milk Street in the West Midlands. 

Tuesday ranks third in the table with an average sold price of £387,000, while roads with Lent in the name also come in around the national average at £288,500. 

Most affordable pancake-related road names

For buyers looking to make a sweet saving, the study revealed are on roads with Sugar (£259,250), Butter (£255,000), Flour (£239,950) and Lemon (£180,000) in the name, as each were home to an average sold price well below the national average over the last year - providing all of the ingredients for a more affordable property purchase. 

Founder and chief executive officer of GetAgent.co.uk, Colby Short, commented: “Whether it’s top-line market growth or pancake-related property sales, the housing market has performed very well over the last year whichever way you look at it.” 

“Many of us will be enjoying our pancakes from the comfort of a new kitchen this Pancake Day, having been one of the thousands to have moved during the pandemic.”

Short noted: “However, we’re unlikely to see this high rate of house price growth giveaway during Lent, or beyond for that matter, as buyers continue to swamp a market plagued by a severe shortage of stock.”
