Property values in SE25 6

First to start our property price guide we want to give an overview of how prices are distributed in SE25 6 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.

For houses

In SE25 6 in 2021, there were 95 houses sold. This represents an increase of 39.71% in house sales versus the prior year.
The chart below will assist in understanding the distribution of these prices, providing insight into the types and sizes of houses sold in SE25 6 in 2021.

After analysing the price distribution, we can examine the median price. Put simply, the median price splits the group of houses sold in 2021 in SE25 6 into two equal groups. In other words, it shows that 50% of the houses sold in 2021 went for over £4713.35.
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 6 (in£) Growth Rate (in %)
2021 £4713.35 -%
2020 £4620.19 22.5%
2018 £4461.16 26.8%
2016 £4669.68 21.2%

Interpreting the table – example with 2018: In 2018, the median price per square metre for a SE25 6 house was £4461.16. Against the newest 2021 data, the median house price per square metre rose by 26.82%%.

For flats

In 2021, 69 flats were sold in SE25 6 – an increase/decrease (choose one) of -14.81%% over 2020.
To better grasp the price per square metre distribution and sizes/types of flats sold in 2021, we’ve assembled the chart below.

While the price distribution gives a helpful snapshot, the median price also provides insight. In 2021, the median price per square metre for a SE25 6 flat was £5102.94 – meaning 50% of flats sold for less than this. See the table below to view how the median price changed between 2016 and 2021.

Year Median Sqm Price inSE25 6 (in£) Growth Rate (in %)
2021 £5102.94 -%
2020 £4769.23 1.2%
2018 £4886.31 -1.2%
2016 £4645.99 3.9%

Deciphering the table – example with 2020: In 2020, the median price per square metre for a SE25 6 flat was £4769.23. Versus 2021 figures, the median flat price per square metre changed by 22.45%%.

Socioeconomic factors influencing the price of a property in SE25 6

Indeed, it’s well known that the property market reacts to economic & demographic signals such as the interest rates, the population growth but also the average household income of the area.

Household income & employment rates in SE25 6

Interest rates

In the last 5 years, Britain’s economic conditions have drastically shifted. 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 capacity. At the same time, with fewer prospective buyers, potential sellers may hesitate to list for fear of lower prices.

Predicting SE25 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 SE25 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.
