But what can you get for your money right now?
Let's take a look at five of the best homes for sale in Newport currently...
Newport homes for sale
Houses for sale in Newport, in fact Wales as a whole, are often quaint period terraces.
And a great example is right here in this three-bedroom mid-terrace north of Newport city centre.
The property is typical of much South Wales housing stock and is in good condition, but with room for improvements and added value.
Close to the M4 for easy access to Cardiff and Bristol, the property is also near two primary schools in Crindau Primary and St Mary's Primary so, at £149,940, it would suit a young family.
East of the city centre in the Liswerry area, meanwhile, this two-bedroom terraced property offers real value.
At £139,500, it is in 'move straight in' condition, with a low maintenance rear courtyard-style garden.
Close to the A48 for the M4, the property would suit a young professional couple buying their first home and needing good transport links for work.
The popular area of St Julians really is one of Newport's prized locations, with great 1900s homes north east of the city centre.
And while in need of modernisation, this substantial three-bedroom semi-detached house has plenty of scope for development.
With three good sized bedrooms, two receptions and a large garage, the real jewel in the crown of this home is its 170ft landscaped rear garden, which is simply stunning.
Close to St Julians School and St Joseph's RC Junior School, this is a really superb family home.
Flats for sale in Newport
With Newport's great transport links to Cardiff and Bristol, including direct trains in just 14 minutes and 34 minutes respectively, the city is fast becoming a popular choice for young professionals priced out of the Welsh capital and one of England's fastest growing cities.
And with flats available often for less than £100,000, more and more young buyers are considering Newport as a sound investment.
Property investors, too, can pick up some great properties offering solid yields - like this two-bedroom flat south of the city centre.
The property is modern and nicely presented with two double bedrooms and close to the A48 for the M4 to Cardiff and Bristol.
For investors looking for a great property in the Newport suburbs, meanwhile, this two-bedroom flat in Caerleon could be a great option.
The property is located in the Newport suburb, on the northern side of the River Usk and close to major road links to the M4.
As well as two double bedrooms, the master also comes with an en suite and built-in storage.
