September 2023 Property Market Report Solihull

October, 2023

According to Rightmove House Price Index, In a month of subdued housing market activity, the average asking price of newly marketed properties increases a little to £366,281 (+0.4%). Prices have risen at this time of year in all but three of our September reports since we began reporting back in 2001, and it is smaller than the average of 0.6% recorded in the same period over the past ten years . While some sellers are clearly being too optimistic on their pricing, it does appear that others are listening to their agents’ advice to price correctly from the outset. As expected, the annual rate of change has continued its downwards trajectory, which means that prices are still on track to meet our prediction of a 2% fall over the year as a whole. According to Nationwide House Price Index, house prices remain unchanged over the month, but remain down 5.3% year on year which is circa £14,500. All regions recorded annual house price falls in quarter 3 of the year.

The South-West was the weakest performing region, with prices down 6.3% year on year.

What can we expect to see in the property market?

Now this news might not seem like good news to most, but the latest announcement from the Monetary Policy Committee fixing interest rates is great news for the property industry. Previous to this we have seen 14 consecutive increases which has meant the last 2 months for most Estate Agents has been quieter than normal, however since this announcement we have seen a 12% increase in buyer activity. This might remain slow throughout the rest of 2023 but there are positive signs to see a huge improvement in 2024 which shows the market returning to normal pre-covid levels.
