LUCKY THIRTEEN

It’s Halloween week, and for those superstitious among us, just over 8,600 house sales have taken place across England and Wales during the last year on properties numbered ‘13’. At £278,950 the average property price of such a property is over £30,000 more than the current average across England and Wales, spookily the equivalent to a 13% price premium. Data from the Land Registry indicates just 1.5% of completions over the past year have taken place on the 13th of the month, with no Friday 13th dates in the past calendar year. Spooky property addresses across the UK include Witchhazel’s Ghost, Pumpkin Cottage, The Ghost Train, Spider Lane, Blood Hill, Broomstick Hall Road and Wizard Way.
