Dewhurst & Co have been marketing and managing properties in Swindon since 1996 and we have always believed that our home town is a terrific place to live, work and buy a home. But now it’s official! A new report by Glassdoor, a business website that collates company reviews and staff data from Britain’s largest companies, places Swindon at number 10 in a list of the 20 best UK towns and cities, ahead of big guns like London, Manchester and Edinburgh, not to mention neighbouring Bristol, Bath and Oxford.
“Swindon also offers exciting buy-to-let opportunities,” continues Mike. “Dewhurst’s property team manages 750 properties for landlords, and given Swindon’s young demographic the demand for flats always outstrips supply. Newish 2-bed flats are available for as little as £120,000, and landlords can expect similar rental yields to places like Bath and Oxford where they’d pay twice as much for properties.”
The Glassdoor rankings were based on key criteria including job opportunities, median salary, job satisfaction ratings, and property prices. Swindon scored well in every category, and in some areas (e.g. average salary) even finished above Cambridge, rated the best place to live in Britain. “Swindon sometimes gets a bad press,” concludes Mike Dewhurst, “but this survey demonstrates it has got an awful lot going for it as a place to live and establish a home.”
