The Swansea area has a lot going for it, and the SA5 district is a historically great area, with medium to high prices (comparing with other South Wales areas) and is quite a sought after area based on demand and the below area ratings on Zoopla.
The locals tend to own their own homes with or without a mortgage, which means it will likely be a great flip for a 2nd home buyer looking for a slightly upper market property as per the area.
There is a good balance of self-employed, managers and professionals in the area to indicate a good demand for a higher quality property that is more easily affordable to these types of individuals.
The family types in this area are higher in pensioners, DINKs and then families. This indicates that a 2-3 bedroom property will suit most of the existing market maybe a 4 bed if they have children. The best return would be a very nice 3 bedroom place done up for a professional couple or maybe a place with a small garden for the pensioner market.
Interests and Newspaper subscriptions in SA5 show a high interest in foreign travel, gardening and eating out as well as low subscriptions to the Sun and Daily Mirror. This supports the position that it has a slightly more sophisticated demographic with more disposable income. A higher than average interest in gardening indicates a good garden in a property will fetch some interest.
