We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area.
You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page.
We hope this helps.

Jarrow is generally a quiet place to live, with low levels of crime according to police records. It is well connected, with a couple of Metro stations (Jarrow and Fellgate). The A19 runs through Jarrow, through the Tyne Tunnel to the north.
Cycling infrastructure is good; there are a number of national and regional cycle routes, many of which are away from traffic. The pedestrian and cycle tunnels are extremely handy, although they're closed for refurbishment at the moment.
Jarrow Metro station is next to the bus station, which has services across the region, which is next to the Viking shopping centre. That shopping centre includes a large Morrisons supermarket.
There are plenty of parks in Jarrow, including a skate park next to the Tyne. The river Don gives some pleasant walks and opportunity to spot wildlife, and Bede's World makes an interesting day out.
I've lived in Jarrow about half way between the shopping centre and the Tyne for eight and a half years, and I have no regrets about buying a house here.
