The Downton spike

A study has shown that house prices jump within the first year of an area featuring on popular television shows.

MyHomeMove say that house prices in the location of a top series spike with houses in Cornwall and Wiltshire where Poldark was filmed going up 11%. 

In Newbury that figure wasn't quite as high - just a mere 8%.

Speaking in the Sun, MyHomeMove CEO Doug Crawford said: “Television shows really capture the imagination. As a nation, we aspire to own our own homes and buy a slice of sour reams. “Naturally, areas that we regularly see on our screens have become increasingly popular with home buyers. “Poldark and Downton Abbey both have had big impacts on house prices in their filming locations, which indicates that a touch of nostalgia may be what home buyers are looking for.”
