Last year was a year unlike any other, with the pandemic and lockdowns dominating discussion.
But one thing that flew a little under the radar was the property market, which seemed to thrive amid challenging circumstances.
And, while this was a nationwide trend, it also proved to be true in Coventry and its surrounding postcode areas.
Here, houses continued to sell well.
Of course, some streets proved to be more in demand than others, with new data showing which addresses were the most and least expensive to buy property last year.
In Coventry, perhaps unsurprisingly, Tamworth Road – known for being one of the most affluent streets in the city, topped the charts.
Here, the average price of property sold was £1,275,000.
The data comes from the Land Registry, which lists the price paid for every residential property.
Averages for each road are then based on the median of all sale prices in 2020.
However, it is worth noting that only streets that have had three or more sales have been included.
It means that it is possible that there are cheaper, or more expensive streets out there, but with insufficient sales last year, they are ineligible for inclusion.
