Flippin' heck


My data shows sherry (in Bray at least) largely obtaining asking or very close to (within a few percent). Pricing high or low it isn’t - the market decides what the price is and in Sherry’s case, they seem to have a good idea of what the market will bear.

That said, most agents get very close to asking so if valuing to low, they’ll get asking and will appear to be on the money is guessing the market right.


Which asking? Last asking?


Original ad. I save em when first advertised.


In tomorrow’s IT property supplement:

Last week’s entry was fairly busy, shame about the view

Nice looking house but only one bathroom?


There’s a garden level WC

Refurbed in 2012 and attempted to flip for €1.1m through Gunne/Quillsen in November 2014:

Back on the market now with Sherry Fitz for €1.15m (€611/sqft)

SF’s pics are a lot more attractive, and so stretched out that the kitchen actually looks like a different kitchen to that which was in the pictures when Gunne was selling (see IT piece), so maybe it’ll drag a few more people through the door.


Compare to Cluain Na Greine in Shankhill (somewhat upthread). Bought for €256 in late '13 and sale agreed recently for the same price as Simmons Court is asking.

Now that’s what I call a flip


Cluain Na Greine is sale agreed at €1.15m? Wow, serious profits in that for the flipper. Just shows there is still lots of value in flipping if you know what youre doing.


Bettyglen House, Bettyglen, Raheny, Dublin 5
12,000sqft - 1 acre - €995,000 - planning for conversion to 10 apartments
myhome.ie/residential/brochu … -5/3590971

Bought for €735,000 in 2013 by Mozil Limited, a company based in Jersey. Back now for €1m. Magnificent house, pity it can’t be left as a single home but done right the apartments will be great too.


The interior is lovely, shouldn’t be allowed demolish it. If only I had the money…

Conversion, not demolition?

It might be lovely, I haven’t read the plans. Too big/wrong location for single family occupancy IMO. Unless it’s a very big family…


That to me illustrates perfectly how poor the planning system is here. The upkeep on the common areas, given the historic features, will be significantly greater than is likely to be acceptable to the average buyer and I don’t think these will attract a substantial premium. The developer of the surrounding estate should have been required to develop an implement a long standing solution to this house before being allowed to sell the houses/duplexes which I imagine was decades ago.


Wouldn’t it be a protected structure? That BER exemption indicates as much (given my house, which is older, requires a BER)

Actually, now that I’ve looked at the interiors, you can bet your bottom dollar it’s protected. Not for the faint hearted, converting that.

Now up for 480 after renovation
myhome.ie/residential/brochu … 6w/3587111

It must be the move from kimmage to Harolds cross !
Renovations looks pretty good but BER is still D1 which is a bit disappointing.
44 priory road a un-renovated house went for 430 a few months ago


Comes up as Harolds Cross 6W on Streetview so it must be true

How on earth did they manage only that? Granted, D’s are the min level you want so as not to start poking holes below the waterline of your flip, but surely a C or even B would have been falling-off-a-log easy in this case?
