Cozee is dedicated to offering comprehensive insights into the fluctuations of sold house prices, property prices, and various property options in E1W. Within this text, we aim to present to you simply and easily how historical shifts in house prices have occurred and then present an analysis of the factors influencing property values in E1W too. So, read on for all of the information you require.

How are average prices of different property types calculated in E1W?

Analysing the Land Registry dataset spanning the past 12 years, we have accurately calculated the average price for a house, a flat and a maisonette in E1W. This involved adding up all prices paid in the area per property type and then dividing this total by the number of properties of that specific type.
Looking at the average price for a House in 2021. There were 18 properties sold in our area for a total amount of £18,068,958. So we’ll need to divide £18,068,958 by 18 to get a figure of £1,003,831 for the average price of a house.

A look into the crucial role of average property prices when buying or selling a house

The average price is here to help you define how much you should be buying a property for or give you an estimate of how much you could sell it for. The average price gives you a very quick overview of the property market in your area. But this does not mean that your property will sell for this price nor should you put an offer for this price. You will have to factor in the specificities of the property you are looking at. Please see below to check in detail the different factors impacting the price.
Before considering buying or selling a property. Cozee recommends that you also have a look at the median price. The median price gives you the price for which 50% of the properties sold in E1W were sold for a higher price and 50% of the properties were sold for a lower price.
For example in E1W in 2019 there were 187 Flat sold. The median price was £538,951. This means that 50% of the Flat sold in 2019 were sold for more than £538,951 and also that 50% of them were sold for less than £538,951.
Finally if you want a clear picture of how much your property is worth, our team of experts at Cozee are here to help. Their knowledge of the area is a guarantee of quality as they are connected to today’s market in E1W.

What are the factors influencing the property price in E1W?

When it comes to assessing the price of a property we tend to look at 7 main factors. These factors can be economic as well as demographic factors.

Location

We are all aware that the location of a property plays a crucial role in driving up or down the price of a property. Indeed the desirability of the neighbourhood and overall safety of E1W is key to understanding the price. That is why, when buying or selling a property it is important to have in mind the crime rate of the area.
We recommend that you have a look at Police.uk Unfortunately we were not able to gather sufficient data regarding crimes in E1W. Note: it is important to note that there is not a good correlation between a higher crime rate and the price of a property. If this can have an impact, this is not the only factor. A quick example is in central London. The property price are higher than the rest of the UK but property prices are still high.
Then comes the proximity with different amenities such as schools, hospitals, shopping centres and public transportations. These elements have a significant impact on the price of the property you might want to buy or sell. To help you get an idea of how this could affect the price of a property in E1W we have summarised these factors in the table below:

Type of amenities Number in E1W
NHS Trusts (hospitals) 0
Practitioners 19
Pharmacies 2
Schools 2
Shopping centres (within a 5mi radius) 15
Public transports (number of train or underground stations) 1 (for more details we recommend that you have a look at tlf

Economic conditions in E1W

In 2023, we are now all aware that the overall economic environment has a consequent impact on the property price. The Office for National Statistics provides a macroeconomic view of these factors.
The employment rate, the income level in E1W and the overall interest rates will either have a positive or negative impact on the prices you will be able to list your property for or the price you might end up paying. Please find below these indicators provided by the Bank of England and the ONS

Interest rates from the Bank of England over the period 2019-2024 The map below shows you in a very few clicks the income level of around E1W. If you are looking to sell your property this indicator might be very helpful to gauge how much you could ask for. The higher the income is in a certain area, the higher the affordability of the households will be. Finally, on top of the income level, you can also have a look at the employment rate within the neighbourhood of the property you want to buy or sell. The map below shows the percentage of usual residents aged 16 years and over who were economically active and in employment in local authorities, 2011 and 2021. As for the income level, an area with a higher employment rate will most likely fetch higher property prices.

Supply and demand in E1W and how to assess it

This is a basic economic principle but whenever the supply is low and the demand high, asking prices are growing accordingly and vice versa. This is true in your area. This means that if you are selling a property in a highly demanded area you might be able to benefit from an increase in price due to this principle. To assess the supply and demand of properties for sale in E1W, we recommend you to have a look at the number of listings on Rightmove, Zoopla and other listing platforms

Property size, features and overall state

When it comes to estimate the price of a property in E1W, estate agents are usually estimating the price per square foot. This means that the bigger the property is, the higher the price will reach. NOTE: this price per square foot in E1W can be impacted by the overall state of the property. A badly maintained property will see a lower price per square foot.
At Cozee we have simplified this for you and we want to provide you with the average price per square foot in your area depending on the property type.

Property Type 2020 2021 2022
Flat £9,309 £9,636 £8,919
House £8,165 £7,776 £7,776
Maisonette £6,787 £7,642 £7,768

Finally a property offering several features will often reach a higher price. This means several bathrooms, a large number of bedrooms and a garden are factors driving the price up.

Demographic indicators in E1W

One of the last major impacting factors of the price of a property in E1W will be the demographic indicators.
Population growth being the first. In E1W, over the past years the population has grown between 2011 and 2021 by 17.79% going from 12,428 to 14639. This type of population growth would usually have a positive impact on the price of the property you are trying to buy or sell. Note: if you see an incredible growth, this might either mean that your postcode did not have previous or enough data for 2011.
Finally the population growth is a good indicator for you if you are looking to buy a property with the intention of renting it out. A high population growth is usually a good indicator of how easy a property will be let.

Other factors impact the value of a property in E1W

At last, there are a few other factors that can have an impact on the price of the property you are looking to buy or sell. These additional factors to take into account are as follow:

  • Environmental factors: floods, droughts but also the overall climate.
  • Governmental factors: is there a specific regulation to facilitate/limit the access to property
  • Market trends: some neighbourhoods in London will see a rise in demand some years due to trends or housing booms while in economic turmoils the prices within the same neighbourhood might decrease more significantly
