The North West remains one of the most affordable places to buy a home in Northern Ireland, according to the latest quarterly housing market report produced by Ulster University, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Housing Executive and Progressive Building Society. The report analyses the performance of the Northern Ireland housing market during the second quarter of 2019, the months of April, May and June. It found that the average price of a home in Derry City and Strabane was £138,164 while the average price in Belfast was £146,834. 

The findings of the survey indicate a resilient market in Northern Ireland with the House Price Index showing relative parity. 

Derry-Londonderry is the second largest city in Northern Ireland and in recent years it has made a name for itself as a tourism hot spot. Known for its historical architecture, large scale festivals, drama and music, the city is attracting large scale investment from global companies who recognise the city’s access to top quality talent and an affordable high standard of living.

Improving transportation connections mean that Derry residents can access Belfast via bus, train or road in 90 minutes, while the City of Derry Airport provides direct flights to London, Manchester, Glasgow, Liverpool and Edinburgh. 

If you are tempted to relocate to Derry there are a number of locations you can choose from within The Braidwater Group.
