Swindon house prices remain affordable

Posted on

Like many other areas in the UK, Swindon has so far weathered the double whammy of Covid and Brexit and the housing market is busier than ever. It is very much a sellers’ market and at Home Finders estate agents in Swindon, we are finding that demand is outstripping supply.

If you are a buyer in Swindon, there may be lots of competition for properties, but the good news is that Swindon prices remain very accessible compared to other cities and towns along the M4 corridor and in the South West.

Not only is it far cheaper to buy property in Swindon, but employment levels and average salaries are also high compared to the UK average. All of which makes Swindon a very attractive location for home buyers.

For as little as £120,000/£125,000, you will find lots of flats in Swindon, which are very popular among first-time buyers. Home Finders Estate Agents have just sold an extremely spacious and well-presented apartment in Queen Elizabeth Drive, listed at £125,000.

A quick search of properties at the same price in Oxford gets you a park home. Basically, a caravan! Or a 50% shared ownership of a two-bedroom apartment.

In Swindon, £160,000 will buy you anything from a 2-bed penthouse apartment to a 3-bed character cottage, a nearly new 2-bedroom coach house, or a 3-bed doer-upper. The same price in Reading gets you a one-bedroom maisonette or a retirement property on the edge of town.

As another example, £190,000 gets you a small one-bedroom flat off the busy London Road in Bath. For £15,000 less in Swindon, Home Finders Estate Agents is marketing a town centre house in Tennyson Street with two generous double bedrooms.

From Tadpole Garden Village, Wichelstowe and Badbury Park to Old Town, Gorse Hill and Swindon’s surrounding villages, there is currently a very high demand for properties of all types in Swindon, whether that means a one-bedroom flat or a five-bedroom family home.

But if you’re a seller in Swindon, that does not mean your choice of estate agent is unimportant. Experience and efficiency matter. And the Home Finders’ promise to vendors is a simple one – we will achieve the highest possible price in the shortest possible time.

We spend time getting to know you, your circumstances, your hopes and your desires so that we can help you sell your home in Swindon and be with you every step of the way from the initial property appraisal, right through to the day you complete your sale.

Home Finders Estate Agents in Swindon will carry out an initial appraisal of your property, taking into account local and wider market trends, similar properties on the market in Swindon and recent sales in your area, as well as the design, size and appearance of the property. We will also make recommendations that may help maximise your property’s appeal.

To ensure your Swindon property is marketed to its very best potential, Home Finders Estate Agents will ensure high quality copywriting and marketing and can offer professional photography, videos, floorplans, 3D images and drone photography.

Your Swindon property will appear on all of the major property portals, as well as additional digital advertising. We also understand the core values of old school estate agency, and so we may also drop cards, leaflets and property brochures, and will also ensure your property is advertised to our extensive database of clients.

As people realise how easy it is to commute from Swindon to London or westwards by train and as prices along the M4 corridor rise to increasingly inaccessible levels, more and more people will turn to Swindon as a viable alternative.

Swindon has good schools, lovely parks, great nightlife and excellent shopping. It is also a really short hop to Cirencester, Oxford or Bath if you fancy a day out of town. What’s not to like?
