For many, January is a month to tighten purse strings after a busy Christmas and New Years period.
But for others it was the perfect time to negotiate the property market, with 23,132 residential sales across Wales and England.
And as daunting as the property market may be, there were definitely bargains to be had across Coventry and Warwickshire.
Looking at official figures from the Land Registry , one property in Coventry sold for just £70,000 in January, while the cheapest in Warwickshire was just £10,000 more, at £80,000.
But neither of these come close to the cheapest property sold across England and Wales that month.
House number 99 in Craddock Street, Spennymoor was the cheapest.
The terraced house – sold for just £17,000 on January 15.
