Mainstream house prices are expected to rise by 10.4% in Kent over the next five years.

New figures from estate agents Savills show the average cost of a home in the region is predicted to rise to £485,553 by 2026 compared to the current average of £439,813.

The increase is slightly less than that forecast for the UK as a whole, with prices expected to rise by 13.1% over the next five years and by 3.5% in 2022 alone.

It means the average cost of a home in the UK would increase by just over £43,000.

David Johnston, head of residential sales at Savills Sevenoaks, believes that while there is likely to be less urgency in the market next year, demand for property in popular towns and villages is set to continue.

He said: “With its connectivity to London, excellent schooling, variety of high quality housing stock and access to lots of green space and open countryside, Kent has always been – and will continue to be – a popular choice for a wide number of buyers.”
