Socioeconomic factors impacting property prices in SE26 6

Beyond 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.
