Moving to Swansea.
Are you moving to Swansea this year? As Wales’s second largest city, it has the advantage of being on the coast and is bordered on three sides by the sea. Glorious beaches and the Gower peninsula are also only a short 15-minute drive from the city centre. House prices are still very affordable, the Mumbles “village”, often referred to as Swansea’s Malibu is a good area to look, as is Uplands, between the university and Dylan Thomas’s birthplace. Brynmill, Sketty and Derwen Fawr are popular with families.
Property prices in Swansea
Average house prices are £115,872 showing a rise of 1.83% over the past 12 months. You can buy a semi-detached property for around £105,000; smaller Victorian terraces for £100,000 and family detached homes starting from £170,000.
