Dominic covers the Milton Keynes area for Lion Estates, powered by Keller Williams UK. He said: “The property market here is surprisingly buoyant and this research demonstrates as such. Of course, each neighbourhood is different in price terms and desirability and so there’s a huge mix of activity and value across the board."

He added: "Those that are curious as to whether their property has increased in value or indeed wish to see if their own street is on course to top the table as the priciest this year, should get a professional valuation from a local estate agent that truly knows the area."
