November 2022 property market report for Solihull

December, 2022

The average price of newly-marketed homes dips by 1.1% this month (-£4,159) to £366,999. As is usual in November, sellers are pricing more competitively to try to find a buyer in the last months of the year. This monthly price drop is exactly in line with the average 1.1% that Rightmove recorded in November during the pre-pandemic years of 2015 to 2019, and so should not be regarded in isolation as a negative indicator. However, there are signs that more existing sellers, whose properties were already on the market and unsold, are willing to take their agents’ recommendations and reduce their prices in order to achieve a quicker sale. The proportion of unsold properties seeing a price reduction has increased only slightly from the pre-pandemic 7.5% in October 2019 to 8% this October. However, it has doubled from the figure of 4% in the frenzied market of October 2021. Buyer demand is still performing better than it was during the more normal market of 2019, but it is clear that we have returned to a much more price-sensitive housing market after two years of a buying frenzy.

What can we expect to see from the property market in December?

In December people puts all their energy into Christmas, so the property market tends to slow down significantly. If you are looking to get a sale in before Christmas, it is best to price your property as competitively as possible. However, once the hype is over, people start looking for their next new adventure. Boxing Day onwards is when we see the markets start to pick up again, which a spike in activity on Boxing Day itself.
