Every year events and parades are held across Wales to commemorate St. David’s day, or for our Welsh readers Dydd Dewi Sant.

Little is known for sure about the patron saint of Wales. He died in 589, but it was not until the 12th Century that he gained real fame, however each March 1 is now celebrated by schools and cultural societies throughout Wales, and it is custom on that day to wear either a leek or a daffodil – two of Wales’ national emblems.

However, this year, we can give Wales another reason to cheer and celebrate. According to our data, property values across Wales are up 0.58% on average over the last 12 months now standing at £225,028. Whilst not a huge rise, they are now heading in the right direction.

On a county area level, Newport, where the average property value is currently  £144,458, performed best over the last 12 months with values up 5.46%. In second place is the Vale of Glamorgan (average property value £199,184) where value are up 3.41% and in third place is Swansea (£145,956) where average property values are up 2.79%.
