Semi-Fever And The Darlington Housing Market

Yes, we're capitalising on England in the semis to talk about property!

It is fair to say semi-final fever has gripped England this week. All eyes are on the big match on Wednesday night, when England take on the Netherlands for a place in Sunday’s final.

At Anthony Jones Properties, we’re fully behind the team, and the country as a whole, but when you mention semi to us, we think of semi-detached homes.

There’s a lot of semi-detached homes in Darlington, and we’re delighted to say we have connected buyers and sellers of these properties across the town.

A quick check of Rightmove on the morning of Monday 8th July indicates a total of 681 properties listed for sale on the nation’s leading property portal. This isn’t the full story of Darlington’s property market right now, but as a quick overview, Rightmove is a great place to start.

Of the 681 properties listed for sale, 176 are semi-detached properties.

What houses are listed for sale in the Darlington housing market right now?

The full breakdown of property sales, per property type, in this period is as follows:

  • Detached properties: 196
  • Semi-detached properties: 176
  • Terraced properties: 175
  • Flats: 80
  • Bungalow: 48
  • Other: 6

Semi-detached properties make up just over 25% of the properties listed for sale in Darlington at the moment.

However, what about semi-detached property sales since the last time England were in a semi-final of a major tournament? Thankfully, it’s not that long ago. Some England fans went decades without seeing the team reach the final four and yet there are just three years between the Euro 2020 (which we all know was eventually played in 2021) and Euro 2024.

On 7th July 2021, England defeated Denmark 2-1 after extra time at Wembley, propelling the nation into the final.

How many semi-detached home sales in Darlington since England’s last semi-final win?

Since that semi-final to the most recent records provided by Land Registry, there have been 1978 semi-detached property sales in Darlington.

The total sum of money spent on Darlington’s semi-detached property in this time is £338,331,700, with the average price paid for semi-detached homes coming in at £171,133.89.

(Rightmove states for the previous 12 months, the average price of semi-detached properties in Darlington stands at £170,758, so it looks as though there’s consistency in this part of the market.)

The street with the most semi-detached sales in this time was Geneva Road, with 23 sales in total. Two other streets enjoyed a minimum of 20 semi-detached sales, Browdie Road with 21 sales and Yarm Road, where there were 20 sales.

30 streets had between 10 and 19 sales with the most expensive semi-detached property being Gardeners Cottage which sold for £775,000 on 27th August 2021.

In total, 11 semi-detached properties sold for at least £500,000 in this time-frame.

Tony Dobbins, of Anthony Jones Properties, said: “We know the joy and happiness a semi-detached home brings to a family, but a semi-final win on Wednesday might even mean more. We can’t help on that score, although like everyone we’ll have an opinion on the line-up and tactics, but we’ll stick with connecting buyers and sellers in the Darlington housing market.”

Anthony Jones Properties wishes England all the best in the match against Netherlands.
