For other types of property

SE14 6 has seen other types of properties being sold over the years but these do not represent a large proportion of the properties sold in 2021. We’ve gathered these properties in the chart above to show you how the price per square metre is distributed for these properties.

If the property you are looking to buy or sell falls into this category, feel free to reach out to us for more details and information. We will be able to provide you with an accurate valuation.

To start our property value guide, we want to summarise how prices are allocated in SE14 6 based on property type. To do this, we’ll inspect the price per square metre to assess the breakdown. We calculate the price per square metre by obtaining the price paid data from the Government’s site. We then divide the price by the property’s area.
This gives us the exact price per square metre paid. We group these prices into brackets (£1000-£1500) showing a property sold for a price per square metre between £1000 and £1500.

For flats

While the price distribution provides a helpful snapshot, the median price also gives insight. In 2021, the median price per square metre for a SE14 6 flat was £6671.58 – meaning 50% of flats sold for less.

Predicting SE14 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 quickly shift, as it has before.
That’s why we show 14 years of sales data – prices, sizes, and sale dates for SE14 6 properties. The chart also displays a yearly average price trendline. As you can see, an upward trajectory that in our view won’t change as of February 2024. Though the curve’s slope may shift ahead.

Socioeconomic factors influencing the price of a property in SE14 6

Apart from location, the property market also responds to economic and demographic factors like interest rates, population growth, and average household income.

Interest rates

In the last 5 years, Britain’s economic conditions have dramatically shifted. Between 2019 and 2024, the Bank of England increased interest rates multiple times to address growing inflation and cool an economy recovering from post-covid measures.
Higher interest rates directly affect the property market by impacting buyers’ borrowing capacity. At the same time, with fewer prospective buyers, potential sellers may hesitate to list for fear of lower prices.

Household income & employment rates in SE14 6

Another determiner of price is the area’s average household income. Prices often increase where incomes are rising. See below for SE14 6’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 SE14 6 property prices.
