Britons can see value of their home increase by £36,000 in 2022 with popular tool


A new study has analysed the relationship between restaurant or takeaway options and house prices.

Property portal Boomin has revealed that living in an area with a large variety of choices in restaurants and takeaways, particularly on Deliveroo, can add an average of £36,000 to a home’s value.

In particular, being located in an area with a ‘good’ amount of delivery options, which would be over 100 restaurant choices, will add tens of thousands of pounds to a home’s value.

This is similar to the ‘Waitrose Effect’ which resulted in house prices increasing whenever a Waitrose had opened in an area.

The recent study sees a ‘Deliveroo Effect’, as the popular takeaway app could hugely increase the value of a UK home.

The data also revealed some particular restaurants may add more value than others.

Byron Burger, Turtle Bay and Wagamama are some of the most popular options.

Moreover, living in a postcode with access to Papa John’s delivery adds an average of £11,355, while a postcode which provides KFC delivered to your door could demand an additional £13,008 of value.

High street dining favourites such as Gourmet Burger Kitchen could add a whopping £27,274 to your home.


Wagamama, the popular Japanese chain, can see an average home value increase by £30,887.

Byron Burger, can add an additional £33,132 to houses located close to one of the restaurants.

Michael Bruce, CEO and Founder of Boomin explained: “Within just the last five years, what buyers are looking for in a home has changed drastically.

“Choice seems to be leading the way, with owners wanting more things to do, to see and evidentially, to put on their plates.

“Living in a location with good restaurants adds to the general ‘feel’ of an area, so much like certain supermarkets adding value to a home, it’s no surprise that particular restaurant brands have the same power to influence prices too.

“What was surprising however, was just how much an effect Deliveroo, and having a good amount of choice on the app, has changed things.

“Deliveries were essential during the pandemic, and the knock-on effect has been beneficial for home owners living in areas with more variety.

“As we become more reliant on speedy deliveries and having a whole host of choice at our fingertips, I can only see this value rising further in the future”.
