Sean, 47, park ranger, Cardiff
I think house prices in Cardiff are slightly high because people cannot afford to buy a house and they need more deposit to put on house. I am renting at the moment. Possibly I may not buy a house in Cardiff in the future but buy one out of Cardiff where is cheaper.
Lee, 31, landlord, Bristol
Yes, the house price in Cardiff is high. But I have a house in Bristol, and the price is too expensive. I own a house and two flats. One of the flats cost me 275,000 pounds without mortgage.
Jason, 43, design manager, Cardiff
Yes. I did buy a house in Cardiff but I am still on the mortgage. If I am retired, probably not buy a house and live in Cardiff. Probably I would buy on the coast for example west Wales.
Sue, 57, retired, Caerphilly
I do not particularly know about the house price in Cardiff but it must be more expensive than where I live. But Cardiff will be a place that we want to live because we like the green that’s why we walk around here.
Uulle, 52, administrator, Penarth
I live in Penarth which is very close to Cardiff. I am not very sure the house price. But the house price in Penarth is quite expensive and it is probably the same in Cardiff. I pay for my house. I work here but I like to be away from the city center. I like somewhere be quieter and more peaceful on weekend.
