Why is the average price important when buying or selling your property in SE12?

The average price serves as a useful tool in determining the appropriate purchase price or providing an estimate for potential property sales. It offers a swift overview of the local property market in your area. However, it’s crucial to understand that this figure doesn’t necessarily represent the exact selling price, and it’s not advisable to make an offer based solely on the average. Specific property details must be taken into account, considering the unique features of the property you are interested in. Further details regarding the various factors influencing the price are provided below for a more comprehensive understanding.
Prior to delving into property endeavours, Cozee emphasises the importance of exploring the median price as an invaluable indicator. By revealing the price at which 50% of the properties in SE12 were sold for more and 50% for less, the median price adds depth to the understanding of house prices. Distinguished from the average, this metric provides a clearer picture of the distribution of property values in the local market. It serves as a strategic tool for buyers and sellers, aiding in well-informed decisions regarding property transactions and contributing to a more transparent and dynamic property market.
In the property market during 2019, observe the exchange of 110 Flat units. The median price, marked at £262,000, signifies a pivotal point where 50% of these Flat transactions surpassed £262,000, and the remaining 50% fell below. This detailed breakdown of £262,000 illuminates the diverse spectrum of house prices in SE12 during 2019, providing essential insights for those considering property purchases or sales. For a comprehensive understanding of your property’s worth, Cozee’s expert team is at your service, boasting unparalleled knowledge and connectivity to the contemporary market trends in SE12.

What are the factors influencing the property price in SE12?

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 SE12 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 In SE12, the crime rate is around 92 per thousand people. This rate can be considered as mediumand will have a small impact on the price of a property in SE12. 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 SE12 we have summarised these factors in the table below:

Economic conditions in SE12

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 SE12 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 SE12. 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 SE12 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 SE12, we recommend you to have a look at the number of listings on Rightmove, Zoopla and other listing platforms
