November 2023 property market report Solihull

December, 2023

According to Rightmove House Price Index, New seller asking prices drop by 1.7% (-£6,088) this month to £362,143. Asking prices usually drop at this time of year, as serious sellers price more competitively to attract distracted buyers in the lead-up to Christmas. However, this year’s November drop is the largest in five years, indicating that new sellers are also increasingly adopting more realistic price expectations from the outset of marketing to tempt potential buyers to act. As we approach the end of 2023, key indicators point to a market that while challenging, has been more positive than many predicted.

According to Nationwide House Price Index, UK house prices rose by 0.2% month on month in November, prices down 2% compared with a year ago. Annual growth remains weak but strongest since Feb 2023.
