With its increasing appeal among renters, first time buyers, and real estate investors, South London has witnessed significant development. At Jukes, our intention is to analyse how property prices have evolved over time and offer key guidance to assist you: sell or invest in a property at an ideal cost.
In this guide we’ll examine macroeconomic elements influencing property values, and closely inspect price changes based on the type of real estate you own or are looking to acquire.

Predicting SE6 2 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 SE6 2 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.

Property prices in SE6 2

To begin our property price guide, we want to provide an overview of how costs are distributed in SE6 2 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 other types of property

Beyond houses and flats, SE6 2 has seen some other property types trade hands over the years, though these do not account for a large share of 2021 sales. We’ve compiled the price per square metre distribution for these assorted properties in the chart below.

After analysing the price distribution, we can focus on the median price. Simply stated, the median price separates the group of houses sold in 2021 in SE6 2 into two equal groups. Put another way, it shows 50% of houses sold in 2021 went for over £4880.95. This number alone may not provide much value unless compared to prior years. Refer to the table below to observe how the median price has changed: versus 2020, versus 2018 (3 years before), and versus 2016 (5 years ago):

Socioeconomic factors impacting property values in SE6 2

After talking about location based factors, we can now focus on factors apparently not related directly to the property itself. 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.

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.

Household income and job rates in SE6 2

Another price driver is the area’s average household income. Prices often rise where incomes are increasing. See below for SE6 2’s household income level, as it may positively impact selling your property. We can’t exclude the job rate from this socioeconomic analysis either. It directly relates to household income. The data shows a clear link between the employment rate and SE6 2 property prices too.
