I’m contemplating buying now, cant / dont want to rent for a year and move again. I do not really see any value in the market at this level in North Co. Dublin. The areas I am looking at are Clontarf, Raheny, Sutton, Howth, Portmarnock + Malahide. I need four beds and a garden with maybe the opportunity to convert an attic or a garage. Dont mind a doer upper and would spend 100K on this…
Any suggestions, has anyone seen anthing that looks like (really) good value in these areas?
Stick it in Rabo and have an extra 40k this time next year give or take a bit of dirt.
Your cash will go much further in a year or two. ou wont’ have to compromise if you have that much available to you.
For that kind of money you could develop on a green field site in north County Dublin. Either set yourself up to qualify for local needs or find a person who qualifies and pay them 20K to build in their name.
An outlay of 500K will still leave you with a 4000 sqft house worth well over 1000K. Sell as a principal residence and you will hake taken the sting to your move to Clontarf Seafield road area buy an old one and extend & refurbish.
That will make a tidy few bob also
Third move you can be mortgage free with a 2000K property
