Cheaper housing

Have your say

FIRST-time buyers in Sunderland are more likely to get on the housing ladder after the city was named the third most affordable place to buy in the country.

A study by property website Adzuna found that the average property in Sunderland costs only £136,095 – just two-and-a-half times the average earnings for the area.

To find a more affordable home, buyers would have to turn to Belfast or Hull.
