What can we expect to see with the property market in July?

After a very strong first half of the year, it is likely that affordability constraints will have a greater influence on market behaviour in the months ahead, with further interest rate rises anticipated. This, alongside more choice coming onto the market for buyers and the usual seasonal variations we’d expect, means that there are likely to be some month-on-month price falls during the second half of the year.

As of June 2022, the average year-on-year increase for house prices in the UK is 9.7%. Rightmove anticipates the year-on-year increase in 2022 to be 5% by December 2022, which means house prices in the UK could fall by 4.7% in the next 6 months.

As we head into the summer holidays, we will start to see the market slowing down considerably. The peak times of the year to sell a property are usually Spring and Autumn, so if you are thinking about selling, either act fast, or wait until September when the kids go back to school.
