Examining property prices in SE5 0

For houses

The chart below will help you comprehend the distribution of these prices and thus can provide an idea of the types and sizes of houses that were sold in 2021 in SE5 0.

After examining the price distribution, we can now focus on the median price. Simply put, the median price divides the group of houses sold in 2021 in SE5 0 into two equal groups. In other words, it indicates that 50% of the houses sold in 2021 went for more than £6987.54.
This number alone may not be very informative unless you compare it to previous years. Have a look at the table below to see how the median price has changed: versus 2020, versus 2018 (3 years before), and versus 2016 (5 years ago):

Year Median Sqm Price inSE5 0 (in£) Growth Rate (in %)

2020 £7195.21 -21.4%
2018 £7287.87 -22.4%
2016 £7072.37 -20%

Understanding the table – example with 2018: In 2018, the median house price per square metre in SE5 0 was £7287.87. Versus the most recent 2021 data, the median house price per square metre increased by -22.37%%.

First to start our property price guide we want to give an overview of how prices are distributed in SE5 0 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 flats

In 2021, 45 flats sold in SE5 0 – a/an increase/decrease (choose one) of -13.46%% versus 2020. To better comprehend the price per square metre distribution and sizes/types of flats sold in 2021, we’ve created the chart below.

The price distribution provides a useful snapshot, but the median price also offers insight. In 2021 the median price per square metre for a SE5 0 flat was £6351.06 – so 50% of flats sold for less.
Check the table below to observe how the median price evolved between 2016 and 2021.

Year Median Sqm Price inSE5 0 (in£) Growth Rate (in %)
2021 £6351.06 -%
2020 £7193.93 -32.9%

Understanding the table – example with 2020: In 2020, the median flat price per square metre in SE5 0 was £7193.93. Versus the most recent 2021 figures, the median flat price per square metre evolved by -21.37%%.

Forecasting SE5 0 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 factors 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 SE5 0 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 SE5 0

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.

Household income and employment rates in SE5 0

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 SE5 0 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 SE5 0 too.
The map below displays the employment rate in your sector. Apart from location, the property market also reacts to economic and demographic factors like interest rates, population growth, and average household income.
