Decoding property prices in SE25 5

A map showing London. Learn more about the city's property market with our guide

South London is an up and coming area for renters, first time buyers and property investors. At Jukes we want to take a step back to analyse how property prices have evolved over time and give some key elements to help you: sell or buy your property at the right price.
In this guide we will look at macro economic factors influencing the price of a property but also take a deeper look at the evolution of prices depending on the type of property you own or you are looking to buy.
Note: the data shown in this article covers the period 2010 – 2021. We are working to improve this model and article with the latest data for 2023.

Socioeconomic factors impacting property prices in SE25 5

Apart from location, the property market also reacts 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 changed. Between 2019 and 2024, the Bank of England raised interest rates multiple times to address growing inflation and cool an economy recovering from post-covid measures.
Higher interest rates directly impact the property market by affecting 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 employment rates in SE25 5

Another price determiner is the area’s average household income. Prices tend to rise in areas where household incomes are increasing. See below where household income in the SE25 5 stands, as it may positively impact selling your property. We can’t omit the employment rate from this socioeconomic analysis either. It directly relates to the household income we just covered. The data shows a clear link between the employment rate and property prices in SE25 5 too.
The map below displays the employment rate in your sector.

Property features & built form

Features like built form, number of rooms, bathrooms etc. significantly impact price – the more features, the higher the price. Recent features also boost value.
For built form, we consider:

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.”

This number alone may not be very informative unless compared to previous years. Refer to the table below to see how the median price has changed: versus 2020, versus 2018 (3 years prior), and versus 2016 (5 years ago):

Year Median Sqm Price inSE25 5 (in£) Growth Rate (in %)

To begin our property price guide, we want to provide an overview of how costs are distributed in SE25 5 based on property type. To do this, we’ll examine 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 site. We then divide the price by the property’s floor area.
This gives us the exact price per square metre paid. We categorise these prices into ranges (£1000-£1500) showing a property was sold at a price per square metre between £1000 and £1500.

For flats

In SE25 5 in 2021, 38 flats were sold. Compared to 2020, this is a decrease of -2.56%%.

So how property prices will evolve in SE25 5 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 5 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.
