Analysing the Trends: Bolton’s House Price Dynamics in June

Cardwells Estate Agents delves into the recent fluctuations in Bolton’s housing market, shedding light on the intricate dynamics shaping property prices. In June, the borough witnessed a modest 0.2 per cent increase in house prices, contributing to a broader trend of sustained growth, with property values surging by 10.5 per cent over the past year. Despite this upward trajectory, Bolton’s performance contrasts with the North West’s overall market sentiment, where prices experienced a more pronounced uptick of 2.1 per cent.

Andrew Cardwells, the managing director of Cardwells Estate Agent in Bolton, provides insights into the underlying factors influencing the market landscape. He remarks, “While we should not read too much into the figures of just one month, a slowdown in the annual house price growth has been expected for some time.” The recent uptick in interest rates, coupled with soaring inflation, poses challenges to household budgets, potentially dampening housing demand. As winter approaches, escalating utility costs further exacerbate financial constraints, exerting downward pressure on property prices.

Acknowledging the resilience of Bolton’s housing market amidst broader economic uncertainties, Cardwells remains cautiously optimistic about the future trajectory. Cardwells anticipates a transition towards more moderate annual price growth, steering away from the double-digit surges observed in recent years. Despite these adjustments, the underlying fundamentals of Bolton’s property market remain robust, underpinned by steady demand and enduring appeal. The market’s ability to weather external challenges underscores its resilience, offering stability amidst economic headwinds.
