Answer me this Pinsters please,

Is it my imagination or did such a thing as chains exist in this country once upon a time ?

Could have sworn I remember friends and relatives years ago buying a house “subject to sale” of their own etc.

Seems like now no EA whether for new or second-hand sales will touch you with a barge-pole unless you’re a FTB or cash trader-upper/downer

Is this a major shift in attitude in the market, or a desire to continue to mop up all remaining cash buyers, or were chains never a feature of the property market here in Ireland ??

NEVER hear of that, I think some current vendors have gone sale agreed on a new house and still need to sell their old one
