To begin our property price guide, we want to provide an overview of how costs are distributed in SW11 4 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 flats

In 2021, 91 flats were sold in SW11 4 – an increase/decrease (choose one) of -58.06%% over 2020. To better understand the price per square metre distribution and sizes/types of flats sold in 2021, we’ve put together the chart below.

While the price distribution provides a helpful snapshot, the median price also gives insight. In 2021, the median price per square metre for a SW11 4 flat was £10294.12 – meaning 50% of flats sold for less.
Refer to the table below to see how the median price changed between 2016 and 2021.

Predicting SW11 4 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 SW11 4 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 property values in SW11 4

Apart from location, the property market also reacts 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 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 & employment rates in SW11 4

Another price driver is the area’s average household income. Prices often rise where incomes are increasing. See below for SW11 4’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 SW11 4 property prices too.
