Walk to School….

May 21st –25th is Walk to School Week. Every day nearly 4.7 million primary school children undertake the school run of which close to 2.5 million walk.

Across England and Wales properties sold within a 10 minute walk of an outstanding primary school attract a 17.8% price premium compared to the average price of a property, the equivalent of £51,688.

The premium is highest across the East of England and South East, where properties sell for as much as £70,000 more.

Premiums across the North East and Wales are the lowest of all the regions, but even here a short, walkable school run can boost sales prices by several thousands.
