He/She who hesitates is lost….
July and August have been very encouraging months in terms of property enquiries and viewings. Conversion to sales are a little slower because buyers still have to get their heads round the fact that they need to have their finances in order.
Increasingly, potential buyers are revealing at a very early stage that they are “cash buyers” and this is quickly becoming the norm at the lower end of the price continuum.
For the cash buyer there is excellent value in the market. We have just listed No.5 Strand View, Rossnowlagh. This is a detached four bedroomed dormer bungalow about 0.5 km from the beach at €112,500.00. It will be on the market for between 21 and 30 days – that’s our target anyway!
“Woodlands Cottage” in Ballyshannon is a very attractive home just on the south side of the town, a stone’s throw from the scenic Erne estuary. This 3 bedroomed home is on the market at €137,500.00.
Finally, we have a lovely cottage on an acre at Edenville, Kinlough, four bedrooms, a quirky layout but exceptional value at under €112,500.00.
In some cases, I really cannot understand how these bargains are not snapped up more quickly, but I know that when they are sold we always get a call saying “I never knew it was for sale!”
As the top retailers say, “Don’t delay, when it’s gone, it’s gone!”
