Location elements influencing property values in SE6 4

Now that we’ve reviewed how the price per square metre in SE6 4 has shifted over time, let’s explore factors impacting the worth of properties you may buy or sell.

Future developments around

An area’s appeal can be measured by its number of upcoming or in-progress developments. More housing means more potential residents, raising demand. To see if this impacts SE6 4 properties you may buy or sell, we’ve compiled all planned projects from the London mayor’s website into the table below.

Closeness to public amenities

One major feature of a property may not necessarily be the size of the garden or the number of rooms. Obviously these correspond to your needs as a buyer, and landlord or a seller. What will truly bring value to your property in SE6 4 will also be its proximity to amenities.

The following ones make a significant impact on the price.

  • Transport
  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Restaurants & pubs

We have gathered in the following table how your postcode sector (SE6 4) is served according to the above list

Type of amenities Number in SE6 4
NHS Trusts (hospitals) 0

So how property prices will evolve in SE6 4 in 2024-2025

At Jukes we have been trying to solve this equation for the past 35 years and let’s be honest, no one has a magic crystal ball and can predict the future prices. The variables included in the prices as you have just read it are simply too many.

With the rise of machine learning and AI the models to predict trends are getting better but they cannot account for external factors yet and the property market can shit pretty quickly as it did in the past.

It is for this reason that we decided not to show any prediction but rather adopted the position of showing the trend over the past 14 years. The chart below shows you all the property sales that happened in SE6 4, their price, the floor area of the property and the date of sale. Additionally, this chart presents you with a trend line showing the average property price for the given year. As you can see there is an upward trend and in our opinion there is no reason that this trend should change as of February 2024. Nonetheless it’s the slope of the curve that may change in the future

Property features & built form

Features like built form, number of rooms, bathrooms etc. greatly affect price – more features mean higher prices. Recent features also increase value.
For built form, we look at:

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.”

Socioeconomic factors influencing the price of a property in SE6 4

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.

Beyond location, the property market also responds to economic and demographic factors like interest rates, population growth, and average household income.

Household income & employment rates in SE6 4

Another factor impacting price is the area’s average household income. Prices tend to increase where incomes are rising. See below for SE6 4’s household income level, as it may positively influence selling your property. We can’t exclude the employment rate from this socioeconomic analysis. It directly relates to household income. The data shows a clear correlation between the job rate and SE6 4 property prices too.

Property values in SE6 4

To initiate our property price guide, we want to summarise how costs are distributed in SE6 4 by property type. To accomplish this, we’ll examine the price per square metre to evaluate the breakdown. We determine the price per square metre by accessing the price paid data from the Government’s website. We then divide the price by the property’s size.
This provides the exact price per square metre paid. We categorise these prices into ranges (£1000-£1500) indicating a property was sold for a price per square metre falling between £1000 and £1500.

For houses

After looking at the price distribution, we can now lean on and have a look at the median price. The median price, simply put, divides the group of houses sold in 2021 in SE6 4 into two equal groups. Said differently, it tells you that 50% of the houses sold in 2021 were sold for more than £5711.16.

This number alone might not bring valuable information unless you compare it to the previous years. Have a look at the table below to see how the median price has evolved: versus the previous year (2020), versus 3 years before (2018) and versus 5 years ago (2016):
