Six UK postcodes immune from property price falls

Despite many reports of property price falls in the UK, independent property finder County Home Company (CHC) has discovered six postcodes in the UK which will always be in high demand and immune from price falls.

According to CHC, the owners of properties in these areas will never have to compromise on price and will always preserve a competitive edge when it comes to selling.

Key factors including location, proximity to good commuter links and stunning views, can create certain property hotspots.

According to Jonathan Haward of CHC, being situated in a picturesque village, being close to reputable schools or near local facilities are all factors that influence buyers.

If a street meets all of these criteria then the properties are likely to be in high demand.

The six ‘golden postcodes’ are situated in Bakewell, Edinburgh, Henley-on-Thames, Nottingham, Tenby and Weybridge.

Castle Street, Bakewell DE45 is situated in the Derbyshire countryside, the street boasts beautiful Georgian townhouses.

Ann Street, Edinburgh, EH4 is renowned for its Georgian townhouses.

Rotherfield Road, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 has countryside living with an easy route into the town.

Beeston Fields Drive, Nottingham, NG9 also has easy access into the city centre.

Lexden Terrace, Tenby, Pembrokeshire, SA70 has been described by the CADW (the historic environment service of the Welsh Assembly), as the finest terrace in Tenby. The street is situated close to the harbour and in a cliff top position, overlooking the south beach and St Catherine’s Island.

Finally, St Georges Hill Estate, Weybridge, KT13 has a non-gated, private road in Weybridge which boasts some of the town’s top schools.
