While the recent British weather may have had other ideas, last month marked the first day of Spring. After a long, hard winter, gardens across the country are beginning to bud back into life and we reflect on some of the Spring flower themed addresses.
Addresses including spring flowers made up just over 700 home sales in 2017. Those which included Peony or Hyacinth attracted the highest sales prices with Bluebells coming in third place.
Spring is traditionally seen as a busy time for home buyers across the country. Indeed, in the last 20 years, sales in the second quarter of the year have been, on average 23% higher than the first quarter.
While 2018 looks set to follow suit, the lack of stock of properties available to buy could restrict buyers.
