Revised Growth Projections:

Savills’ latest forecast paints a more optimistic picture for 2024, with house prices expected to grow by 2.5%, a significant revision from the previously forecasted -3.0%. This upward trajectory is fueled by reductions in mortgage debt costs, signalling a potential resurgence in buyer confidence.

Looking further ahead, Savills anticipates a robust growth trajectory, projecting a cumulative increase of 21.6% by the end of 2028, up from the previous estimate of 17.9%. These revised projections underscore the resilience of the housing market and its capacity for sustained growth.

Market Dynamics:

Housing transactions are forecasted to reach 1.05 million in 2024, reflecting a slight uptick from previous estimates. This uptick, coupled with improved economic indicators, sets the stage for a period of cautious optimism in the property market.

Regional Variations:

While the overall outlook appears promising, regional disparities in growth trajectories are evident. Regions such as the North West, Yorkshire and The Humber, Wales, and Scotland are poised for robust growth, outperforming their counterparts in London and the South East.

Navigating Uncertainties:

Despite the positive momentum, uncertainties loom on the horizon. Continued geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and unexpected fluctuations in US inflation rates introduce complexities into the market dynamics. Moreover, the possibility of an Autumn election adds another layer of uncertainty, potentially impacting buyer sentiment towards the year’s end.

Long-Term Vision:

Looking beyond the immediate horizon, Savills’ revised forecast signals a more even distribution of growth over the five-year period. Strengthening economic performance in 2025 and 2026 is poised to bolster buyer sentiment, paving the way for sustained growth.

However, affordability constraints, particularly in London and the South East, may emerge as key challenges towards the end of the forecast period. As we navigate these dynamics, it’s essential to stay agile and adaptive, leveraging insights to make informed decisions in an ever-evolving market landscape.
