South Wales is a beautiful region that offers a diverse range of lifestyles for house-hunting families - from convenient city living in Cardiff and Newport, to quieter options in the suburbs, the Vale of Glamorgan, and the South Wales Valleys. With an impressive choice of new developments to suit a wide range of tastes and budgets, South Wales also boasts lush countryside, gorgeous beaches, and fantastic city centre shopping and entertainment.
The property market in Newport in Gwent has been out-performing many areas of the UK, rising 7.8% since the start of 2012 compared to the average 1.4% rise across England and Wales. Despite this, Taylor Wimpey has vowed to freeze the prices for the final homes at Gerddi Rhiwderyn, its development just outside the popular South Wales city.
As south Wales covers a large area, getting an overall sense of cost of living is quite difficult. However, according to recent studies, the south-east, including Cardiff and Newport, is one of the most affordable places to buy in the UK.
With its strategic position, river views, quality specification and good potential rental returns, Taylor Wimpey's City Vizion scheme in Newport, South Wales has become a popular option for property investors. Annual rental yields of up to 7% have attracted the interest of buy-to-let investors looking to add to their portfolio with a high-quality new-build home.
