What will happen to house prices in 2023 in Dartford?

If you’re a UK homeowner, knowing what to do with your property in 2023 can be a little confusing to say the least. If you’re considering property sales in Dartford, understanding what will happen to house prices over the coming year will be of huge importance. 

Our Dartford property agents explain that situations in Kent look a little different to the general UK trends. Here’s what to expect regarding property sales Dartford and its impact on sellers currently living in the outskirts of east London.

Are house prices rising or falling in Dartford?

Fuelled by increased living costs and mortgage interest rates, experts have predicted that UK property prices could fall by as much as 10% in 2023. While this is cause for concern, Dartford property sales continue to show a positive trend.

Statistics from sales in September showed that property prices in Dartford surpassed £370,000, signifying a 13.9% increase over the course of 12 months. Dartford property agents believe that prices will continue to climb, resisting a national trend that has seen most estate agents note a record number of sales made below the asking price,

It’s not hard to understand the appeal of Dartford. It has excellent transport links to central London, Essex, and the rest of the country thanks to its proximity to the Dartford Crossing and several London airports. Meanwhile, house prices are significantly cheaper than in many nearby locations.

Figures for property sales Dartford do show that semi-detached (73%) and terraced houses (16%) are taking a little longer to sell than they did one year ago, which aligns with the fact that property sales slowed by about 15% in the UK over the course of 2022. This does mean that property owners looking to sell in Kent may have to show a little patience. However, flats (48%) and detached (19%) properties are selling faster.

Either way, the fact that property prices are still increasing despite the UK market trends suggest that this is a good time to build equity by selling in Dartford and taking advantage of prices in other parts of Kent, Essex, or further afield – especially for London workers who are now able to use WFH models. It could be particularly fruitful heading into Q2 and Q3.

Steven Hall Mortgage Advisor

Steven Hall

Hi, my name is Steve and I am a Mortgage & Protection adviser covering the south-east of England.

I have personally been involved in the Mortgage and protection industry for over 15 years, with 13 of those as an Adviser.

Here’s just some of the types of scenarios we can help with:
• Residential Purchases and Re-mortgages
• Buy to Let Purchases and Re-mortgages
• Let to Buy Re-mortgages
• Help to buy mortgages
• Right to buy mortgages
• Shared Ownership Mortgages
• Capital raising for home improvements or deposit on investment properties

I am always more than happy to discuss any enquiries you may have. We offer a very personal service and pride ourselves on taking the time to find the perfect solution for your requirements.

So how does it work? We normally start with an initial call that lasts 5-10 minutes to establish if your expectations are realistic and if we are likely to be able to help you. If that goes well we can then look to set up a full mortgage appointment. Normally this is via a video meeting. Our aim then is to give you an idea of the likely costs, how much you can borrow and ultimately working towards providing you with something called a ‘decision in principle’. A decision in principle is a certificate from a prospective lender that confirms that your credit history is acceptable and how much you can borrow. This will give you the confidence that you are in a position to make an offer on a property and ensure that you are taken seriously by an estate agent and the vendor. Note that many estate agents will not even allow a viewing until you have a decision in principle. Lastly, once you find a property and your offer is accepted, we then guide you through the whole mortgage application process with the aim of making it as simple as possible for you.


We typically charge a fee of £399 payable at the point of application for a purchase or on completion for a re-mortgage, however this will be dependent on your personal circumstances.
