Ready, Steady, Go!
In general terms the sale of residential property can be quiet during the period from November through Christmas and into January. In Bundoran, for example, many who are involved in the hospitality business use this twelve week period to undertake essential maintenance on their properties, do any remodeling that may be required and, naturally, take a well earned and much needed holiday.
During the same period we see a generally more active level of property enquiries. People looking at second homes tend to search at this time of the year because if they agree a transaction they can generally be in occupation in time for the Easter Holiday.
This year many Estate Agents are complaining that their saleable stock is low. By saleable, I mean that segment of property in a special price range. This is different for every area but in Bundoran the greatest area of demand is up to €150,000.
Naturally, if demand is strong in this segment it follows that supply can suffice from time to time.
If you are thinking of selling please give us a call and we can discuss both price and timing to help you start the process and have you ready to go on the market in the early Spring!
Where did the time go?
It’s hard to believe that the Summer, such as it was, is over. Schools and Colleges have reopened and the torrent of tourists will move to a trickle at the end of October. There is no doubt that the Wild Atlantic Way campaign has served the region very well and we have seen a significant rise in tourists this year. The only bogey has been the strengthening position of the Euro versus the Pound Sterling due to the lack of progress in the Brexit negotiations. Markets do not like uncertainty. That is why we have not seen the same growth and activity in the property sector here as we see in the major urban centres.
Every cloud has a silver lining and in this case it means that property is still very good value for money in the North West. Don’t miss the opportunities this time round. We, as always, are delighted to help you either buying or selling.
Three to go!
How would you like to be a very special landowner and own over 3.5% of a county’s frontage on the Atlantic Ocean? Our 3 bedroomed country cottage stands on over 20 acres of good quality coastal agricultural land in the Tullaghan area c. 3 miles south of Bundoran. There is planning permission for a very attractive country home on this land.
Right in Bundoran town centre, on the Golden Mile, you can have a historic retail unit c. 650 sq ft and a ground floor one bedroomed apartment c. 500 sq ft. Bed & Business!
In the Resort’s West End you could have a modern two bedroomed semi-detached bungalow c.850 sq ft on a generous corner site just a short walk from Main Street and the Seafront.
These properties are just samples of our current listings. Have a browse on our website to see more great value.
Incidentally you could have all three properties for a whisper under €450,000 (the price of a terraced house in Dublin!)
