Swansea is a coastal city and the second largest city in Wales with a population of approximately 241,000. During the 19th-century industrial heyday, Swansea was the key centre of the copper-smelting industry, earning the nickname Copperopolis.

There is a wide range of housing stock in Swansea, from spacious family homes to luxury apartments in the Maritime Quarter, next to the city's sandy beach, where there has been significant development in the last few years and many properties are owned as vacation lets or second homes.

Buildings dating back to the Georgian and Victorian eras sit among the glistening new housing developments in the Maritime Quarter and around Wind Street and Castle Square.

The most expensive houses in Swansea are typically located in areas along the coast, such as Brynmill, West Cross, Caswell, Singleton Park, Blackpill (home to a lido), Bishopston, Clyne, Langland, Oystermouth and Southgate.

Swansea's significant student population makes it appealing for buy-to-let investors. Brynmill and Uplands are very popular student areas located close to Swansea University’s Singleton Park campus. Students typically live in flats and large houses.

Nearby is Sketty, which also has a good proportion of large properties for students to share. Sandfields, another student area closer to the city centre, generally has smaller properties.
