House prices

Housing is at the top of many people's priorities and with some of the lowest house prices in England, you certainly get a lot more home for your money in the North East and North Cumbria.


As you can see average housing costs here are far lower than the rest of the UK and that goes for renting too. We are proud of the wonderful towns, cities and villages we call home that have some of the most unusual and exquisite housing stock in the country. With a wide range of property to suit most budgets and lower rents and mortgage payments, our region is an attractive proposition for people looking to relocate or grab the first rung of the housing ladder.
