Forecasting SE13 6 property prices in 2024-2025

At Jukes we’ve tried solving this puzzle for 35 years – honestly, no magic crystal ball accurately predicts future prices. Too many variables drive costs, as you’ve read.
AI and machine learning are improving trend prediction models, but can’t yet account for external factors. The property market can shift quickly, as it has in the past.
That’s why we show 14 years of sales data – prices, floor areas, and sale dates for SE13 6 properties. The chart also displays an average price trendline yearly. As you can see, an upward trajectory that in our view won’t change as of February 2024. But the curve’s slope may shift going forward.

Property factors driving price rises in SE13 6

Property features & built form

When it comes to features we usually include the built form but also the number of rooms, bathrooms etc. The more features a property has, and the recency of these features will significantly impact the price.

Also, when we talk about built forms we usually have the following list in mind:

Built form Definition according to RCIS website
Detached “A detached house is a stand-alone residential structure that does not share outside walls with another house or building.”
Semi detached “A dwelling attached to another building or dwelling by one common party wall. Often each house’s layout is a mirror image of the other.”
End-Terrace “End of terrace used to describe a house situated at the end of a row of houses only joined on one side to a joining property.”
Mid-Terrace “Mid Terrace used to describe a house situated in the middle of a row of similar houses.”

Property sizes

Obviously when looking at buying the floor area of the property has a direct impact on the price you’ll be selling at or paying for. In order to get a clearer picture of SE13 6 we have come up with the following charts showing the distribution of properties depending on their total floor area.

Socioeconomic factors influencing property values in SE13 6

See below for SE13 6’s household income level, as it may positively influence selling your property. We can’t exclude the employment rate from this socioeconomic analysis. It directly relates to household income. The data shows a clear correlation between the job rate and SE13 6 property prices too.

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.
