September 2022 property market report for Solihull

October, 2022

The average price of property coming to market rises by 0.7% (+£2,587) this month to £367,760. This is in line with the average September rise of 0.6% over the last ten years.

Price growth this month is driven predominantly by the middle and high-end market sectors, with the “second stepper” category (three bedrooms and non-detached with four bedrooms) reaching a new record average asking price of £340,513. Buyer demand in these sectors is up by 2% even compared to the frenetic market of last year, while more choice is now also available compared with 2021. These numbers suggest that for those who can, moving up the ladder to a home with more space remains a priority, even at a time when personal finances are stretched.

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

October is a peak month for property sales with the last rush of people looking to buy before their thoughts move to Christmas.

However, this autumn we might see the market slow down as people start to put their plans to move house on hold due to the cost-of-living crisis and mortgage rates on the increase.
