Swansea tops the list for house hunters

Swansea is the most popular place in the UK, outside of London for potential buyers, according to new research.

According to Zoopla, the town topped the list for searches from house hunters using its website in the last 12 months, showing the popularity of this city on the south coast of Wales.

Laura Howard, consumer expert at Zoopla said that the town’s “…popularity could be partly attributed to the employment opportunities in nearby Swansea combined with having the Gower, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on your doorstep.”

With miles of beaches covered in golden sands, medieval castles, craft shops, rolling hills and world-class museums, there is plenty to do in the Swansea area. The city itself is also great for kids as the centre is small enough that it is easy to walk around, and quite pedestrian friendly.

There are a number of new homes being built in the Swansea area for eager house hunters, including at the new Barratt Homes Chapel Fields development in Loughor.
