Socioeconomic factors impacting property values in SE25 4

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 ability. At the same time, with fewer prospective buyers, potential sellers may wait to list for fear of lower prices.

Household income and job rates in SE25 4

Another factor impacting price is the area’s average household income. Prices tend to increase where incomes are rising. See below for SE25 4’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 SE25 4 property prices too.

Property values in SE25 4

First to start our property price guide we want to give an overview of how prices are distributed in SE25 4 on the type of property. To do so, we will look at the price per square metre to assess the distribution. To create the charts, we are calculating the price per square metre by getting the price paid data from the Government website. Then we divide the price by the surface area of the property.

Once this is done, it gives us the exact price per square metre paid and we finally categorise these prices into buckets (£1000-£1500) indicating that a given property has been sold with a price per square metre oscillating between £1000 and £1500.

Forecasting SE25 4 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 SE25 4 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.
