As if there isn’t enough to deal with in selling your home, one thing you might not have considered is how the name of your street is seen by buyers. I saw this Tweet by fellow Indy blogger, @Mooshinindy, “When looking at homes I’m being unusually snotty about the street name.I don’t want to have to say I live on Persnickity Plum Ct.” What developer thought it would be a good idea to name a street Persnickity Plum Court? Imagine telling the pizza delivery guy you live on these streets:
I know of a Real Quiet Drive in a subdivision at Raceway Rd and 21st. I just want to go there and be LOUD.
I hear that in San Diego there’s a street called Haveteur way (pronounced “Have It Your Way”).
How about Booger Branch Road in Pickens, South Carolina?
So think about it when you buy your house, you might have trouble selling later down the road (ha ha) if you choose a home on one of these poorly named streets!
Have you seen an awful street name? Please share! Remember this is a G-rated blog though! I saw some that I would NOT post here, like the name of a certain town in Austria…
