Stupid things EAs say

20 All Saints Road, Raheny

No BER of course, most likely D something or so.

Like the maths though:

And he’s really trying to sell it with them pictures. All that beauty yours for just 350K. Nice area though.

You can get 3 apartments of that size in anywhere outside of Dublin such as Galway, rent them out, have income of ~2000-2500 coming in from them, thats more than enough then to rent larger places anywhere in Raheeny with option to move if your job requires…


#143

50% tax is the killer though - you would be lucky to find a decent one-bed for €1,250 a month!


#144

You’d also be relying on the rental market in your target non-Dublin place not collapsing. Given the recent past, this is not a bet I’d like to make (rents in Dublin never got particularly low during the crisis, but rents in many regional areas essentially went to 0).


#145

True enough on both counts, might be better idea to leave the country altogether getting a job elsewhere hence your income in Ireland will only be from the rentals.

Praying they’re taking the p***… :open_mouth:

May be on the deeds or folio but someone can’t do their conversions because 2 roods and 18 perches(statute) is 0.61 statute acres

However 2 roods and 18 perches (Irish) is approximately 1 statute acre which still means their figures are off


#149

Curiously, Irish Times saying 0.62 acres, which was presumably supplied by the agent, so that would make more sense and tie into the 2 roods and 18 perches measurement.

Love the house, gardens and road - owners selling up after nearly 50 years there.

There was one a while back advertising that it was a short stroll from Trinity, the RDS, the Bord Gais Theatre, and UCD. So few houses come with a wormhole these days! It was actually in Sandymount, I think, so at least 30 minutes to some of them, which is stretching the definition of “short stroll” just a little.


#151

Shocked that they label it Dundrum - try Ballinteer and even then it is closer to the Dublin Mountains than Supavalu! I remember seeing one place a couple of months back that was right underneath the google maps ‘Rathfarnham’ label, but on Myhome it was listed as Rathgar.


#152

I think they may be ok calling it Dundrum, but its Dundrum, Dublin 16, not 14.


#153

The return of the drive-by ad: €1.25m and only a poor exterior picture. Oh, and the address is missing.

Luckily we can derive the address from the BER cert; if you are the tenants of 29 Hampton Park, Booterstown it’s time to look for a new gaff.

I viewed a number of houses around the Dalkey/Sandycove area yesterday with some prospective ex-pat buyers who are veterans of more than one purchase in the UK. Not to name names, but the estate agent was a company with the same initials as a well-known left wing Republican political party. The buyers asked the EA why vendors are never present in the house during a showing – completely the opposite of the norm in the UK. The EA replied with a completely straight face, and I quote: “the vendor mightn’t have much experience of selling and they might say the wrong thing”.

Apart from the formulaic ‘second to none’ comment I think the description of this house is spot on. Succinct, tells me all I need to know and the writing style is very good (IMO). The listing itself could do with floorplans and dimensions though


#157

Were they trying to match the period property with a period writing style? …
“The subject property” is “superiorly positioned” with “a small rear single storey extension thereon”?
:smiley:


#158

Maybe Mr Micawber wrote it


#159

EA came round to take photos and measure up my house for sale.

Using a laser measure.

I challenged him on this absurdity. He was adamant that he has a legal and ethical obligation to tell the truth.

I have no words.

Pity they didn’t get the insulation sorted!
