Cha-ching! Homes on streets with women’s names ‘more valuable’ than those on male-named streets

Cha-ching! Homes on streets with women’s names ‘more valuable’ than those on male-named streets

How much does a street name matter when it comes to a home’s value?

It turns out that houses on streets with female names are worth more than those on streets with male names, according to Realtor.com.

The website’s researchers evaluated property values on female and male streets “over millions of for-sale listings” on the site, according to RealtorMag, the online magazine of the National Association of Realtors.

“Realtor.com pitted male street names – such as the Jacksons, Grants, and Coopers – against female street names – the Pearls, Elizabeths, and Roses,” the report says.

The research found that there are more residences on male streets than female-named streets.

“However, properties on female streets were found to be more valuable,” the magazine says.


Streets with human names have less expensive properties compared to all streets. Realtor.com says that could be because many streets with human names tend to have older homes.

The median year of construction for homes on male-named streets is 1970; the median year for female streets is 1981.

Based on median home values, Magdalena was the priciest woman’s street name, while Francisco was the most expensive man’s street name.

The top-dollar Magdalena address in the report was Magdalena Road in Los Altos Hills, a Silicon Valley community where homeowners include Google co-founder Sergey Brin. The road has two properties for sale at $ 4.2 million and $ 5.2 million.

Francisco Street in downtown Los Angeles has homes priced from $ 500,000 to $ 2 million.
