Homes you can buy in Wales for £250,000 or less
The housing market is incredibly busy right now, and one of the reasons for all the activity is the temporary reduction period for Land Transaction Tax (LTT) in Wales.
In England and Northern Ireland, the equivalent tax – called Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) – has also been temporarily reduced.
The LTT reduction in Wales applies to the sale of properties priced up to £250,000 until 30 June, 2021. From July, the threshold will drop back down to £180,000.
So we have taken a look at what you can buy in Wales for £250,000 or less while you can still take advantage of the savings.
If you’re into properties on the quirky side and bursting with character, you need to check out this four-bedroom cottage in Llandderfel, a quaint village standing in the majestic Upper Dee Valley.
It’s deceptively spacious. Three of the four bedrooms are much larger than you’d expect for a cottage of this type.
It also has a charming garden and even comes with a nice big garage that could be used for storage and/or an extra office space.
We absolutely love the exposed beams in the kitchen, and admire how the owners have managed to give this period home a fresh, contemporary look, whilst still keeping much of its original charm and character.
If you’re one of the many people who are thinking of moving to the countryside in search of open space, nature, and stunning views, you should check out this chalet in Abersoch.
Only built in 2014, it’s got a modern feel to it, and obviously done to very high standards. And yet, it still blends in perfectly with its green surroundings.
With three spacious bedrooms and a large open-plan design for the kitchen and lounge, we think this is a rather stylish home.
Of all the things we love in this property, perhaps the greatest selling point of all are the magnificent views. Simply breathtaking!
Neath Port Talbot
This three-bedroom home in the town of Baglan, near Port Talbot, has been modernised recently and has plenty of space.
The floorplan includes two reception rooms and a charming kitchen/diner with large French doors which lead to the garden – which allow lots of natural light in.
The garden is south-facing, which is a definite bonus, and you can also take a walk down to Aberavon Beach – less than 10 minutes away.
We quite like that there’s an extra detached unit in the garden which could be useful as an office, gym, or extra guest room.
Here’s a stunning two-bedroom apartment in Cardiff. It literally faces the sea, and the views are amazing.
It’s bright, spacious and open-plan. It looks like such a great place for a dinner party when we are able to entertain in our homes again.
It’s clear the entire place has been designed to a high standard. The kitchen and bathrooms are high spec and stylish.
On a nice day, you could open those large glass sliding doors, let the sunshine and fresh sea breeze in, and enjoy those spectacular views!
This semi-detached three-bedroom home is in the popular village of Undy – just past the border into Wales from Bristol.
The home looks warm and welcoming. The open-plan design makes for a lovely living space, and the massive bi-fold glass doors make the place bright and airy.
Every part of the house looks like it’s in an immaculate condition.
The location is convenient in many ways – less than 20 minutes away from Newport, a half hour’s drive from central Bristol, and, if you’re into nature, near Brecon Beacons, the Cotswolds, Wye Valley, and loads of gorgeous beaches.
