3 Estate Agents a week closing down

This is based on Galway figures where 5% of the population live in Galway and at least 3 estate agents have closed down since July…equating to 3 a week nationally.

It may not be as noticeable in Dublin where they tend to be larger multibranch operations but branches have gone, equating to agencies.

This is interesting as such a stat has been curiously missing from the discussion so far. Which estate agents have clsoed down?

But aren’t EA firms also sprouting up like those little mushrooms you get over a septic tank, according to business start-up figures? A bit like hosing down the burning house with kerosene.
