Could you market a property based on its quirky postcode?

Forget en-suites and garden rooms, could you boost viewings with the postcode of a property?

Research by comparison website Money.co.uk has identified where house prices have grown the fastest over the past twelve months as well as the most unusual and rudest postcodes in the UK and their effect on property values.

The Cornish market town of Redruth, which has the postcode TR16 6ER (TRIGGER), has seen the largest increase in house prices over the past year, according to the analysis.

Prices have increased by 21.12 per cent to £305,734.

Newquay, another Cornish coastal town, takes second place as house prices in the TR7 1NG (TRYING) region increased by 16.43 per cent.

The research also identified areas where prices are well below the average for the UK.

Buyers in Peterlee, County Durham can get the postcode AL1 5HA (ALPHA). These properties have typical prices of £41,462, 86.84 per cent below the UK average of £315,059.

Homes in KA1 5ER (KAISER), Kilmarnock, Scotland cost an average of £51,044, 83.8 per cent less than the UK average.

Sex sells with Exeter’s postcode, 5EX (SEX). Despite being highly unfortunate, the average house price in Sivell Mews is 2.76 per cent higher than the national average at £323,770.

Out of all of the unfortunate postcodes, Teddington (TW11 1AT) claims the top spot with its sweary disposition.

Homes in Teddington sell for around £892,903 - 183.41 per cent above the national average.
