View from an alley way in South London showing terraced houses

South London is increasingly attractive for renters, first time home buyers, and real estate investors. At Jukes, our goal is to study how property values have shifted over time and offer key recommendations to assist you: sell or acquire a property at the best price.
In this guide we’ll analyse macroeconomic elements driving property prices, and closely examine price fluctuations depending on the type of property you own or hope to purchase.
Note: The data here encompasses 2010 – 2021. We’re updating this model and article with the newest 2023 data.

So how property prices will evolve in BR5 4 in 2024-2025

At Jukes we’ve tried deciphering this puzzle for 35 years – honestly, no magic crystal ball accurately forecasts future prices. Too many elements drive costs, as you’ve read.
AI and machine learning are enhancing trend prediction models, but can’t yet account for external factors. The property market can quickly shift, as it has before.
That’s why we show 14 years of sales data – prices, sizes, and sale dates for BR5 4 properties. The chart also displays a yearly average price trendline. As you can see, an upward trajectory that in our opinion won’t change as of February 2024. Though the curve’s slope may shift ahead.

Property factors driving price rises in BR5 4

Property features & built form

Future developments nearby

An area’s popularity can be gauged by the number of ongoing or planned developments. More housing in an area means more people are able to live there, increasing demand. To check if this impacts properties you may buy or sell in BR5 4, we’ve compiled all upcoming developments from the London mayor’s website into the table below.

Socioeconomic factors impacting property values in BR5 4

Interest rates

Over the past 5 years the economic conditions in Great Britain have drastically changed. Between 2019 and 2024 the Bank of England raised its interest rate multiple times to face a growing inflation and cool down an economy that was recovering from post-covid measures.

Interest rates have a direct impact on the property market as it will impact the capacity for potential buyers to borrow money. At the same time, with less prospective buyers, potential sellers are less likely to sell amid the fear of selling for a lower price.

Household income and job rates in BR5 4

Another determiner of price is the area’s average household income. Prices often increase where incomes are rising. See below for BR5 4’s household income level, as it may positively impact selling your property. We can’t exclude the job rate from this socioeconomic analysis. It directly relates to household income. The data also shows a clear correlation between the employment rate and BR5 4 property prices.
