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 SE14 5 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.
