Property data for Swansea

Prices, rents, yields, growth & much more for the city of Swansea

Back to all cities

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. Start your PropertyData free trial today

Where does the raw data come from?

Property listings seen on rightmove.co.uk, zoopla.co.uk and onthemarket.com.

How often is the data updated?

The data is updated in near real-time.

What time period does the data cover?

This is a real-time market snapshot - the data covers currently listed properties. Once properties are removed from the portal, they are soon removed from this tab.

How is the raw data processed?

Duplicates from multiple sources are matched and reconciled as far as possible. Listings with obvious errors, where price or number or bedrooms appear out of range, are discarded.

What are the statistics used?

Averages shown are the interquartile mean, a type of average that is insensitive to outliers while being its own distinct parameter. The 80% range means that 80% of the listed properties fall inside this range.

How do you know the square footage of properties?

We use proprietary technology to read the square footage of properties from agent floorplans. Although we cannot determine the square footage for all properties, we can usually get sufficient coverage. Agents are sometimes known to inflate square footage, and this should be borne in mind as a weakness of this data.

Property "price paid" data provided by the Land Registry.

Once per month when released by the Land Registry, typically towards the end of each calendar month covering up to the end of the previous calendar month.

You can customise the time period using the filter at the top of the view. The default time period is up to 9 months back from today's date. The latest data covers the period up to 2024-03-28, although some sales that took place before this date may still be added in the coming months.

Where does the raw data come from?

Property "price paid" data provided by the Land Registry, and Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) data provided by Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities.

How do you know the square footage of properties?

We match the Land Registry data to EPC data provided by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities. Due to the fact that not all properties sold have had an EPC and vagaries of addressing in the UK, we are not able to determine the square footage of all properties, but we can usually get sufficient coverage.

The private paid data is updated once per month when released by the Land Registry, typically towards the end of each calendar month covering up to the end of the previous calendar month. The energy performance certificate database is updated monthly.

How is the raw data processed?

What is the yield calculation used?

The calculation used is (average_weekly_asking_rent * 52 / average_asking_price), expressed as a percentage. It is a top-line gross yield, meaning no expenses are considered.
