I have been monitoring the house prices in the Castleknock area for a few months and waiting to see what happens. House prices seem to be going in all directions but the trend is the market has slowed.
A house on Castleknock Avenue (Laurel Lodge) dropped this week from 810k to 770k. Another house in Pecks Lane dropped from 795k to 730k.
There are houses on Roselawn which have been on the market for 6 months and the prices are still the same. The sellers can’t be in much of a hurry or they are dreaming.
And a house in Stockton Lawn has sold quickly and over the asking price.
I guess some areas are holding up better than others.
Was looking at the supply for all Dublin areas on Daft and was kinda surprised at Castleknock. Didn’t realise it was that big an area or I thought it was quite well established to have 156 properties on sale.
The Castleknock area cover the village, Laurel Lodge, Roselawn and even parts of Carpenterstown and Coolmine. It is quite a big area. The village especially is well established and that is where prices seem to be holding up mostly.
