“The consensus amongst our members is that the market has bottomed out,” says Mehl.
“We’re not going to see any significant growth in prices for a while but we’ve seen a huge increase in activity in 2010 and it’s been very encouraging for months. Most auctioneers are looking at the levels of activity in the marketplace and that will be a good indication of where the market is going. Last year, there was very little activity but we’re taking great encouragement from the increase because we’re now in our third very difficult year. Auctioneers might have 20 people viewing a house and at the end of the week there might not be a sale, but at least you know that people have it in their mind that they want to buy and it gives an idea of the pent up demand.”
That kind of sh1t really bugs me – Looked at a house with the OH – location is 100% perfect but house needs work and we feel that the price is to high. The owners are separating and one half is keen to sell, wants the money to move on. If the property crash was sharp the it would be short, they’d get something for the house and would be able to buy exactly what they would now as it to would be down. Instead it’s going to cost them another few years with one renting and one living in the house.
I’m sick of renting I want to buy but I didn’t sit out the boom the phuck it up now by over paying
I’m not saying that they are correct, but whilst in Cork Wednesday, we were meandering and looked into Global properties, on Marlborough Street I think, and there was a sign “WE URGENTLY NEED 3 AND 4 BEDROOMED HOUSES IN BISHOPSTOWN,DOUGLAS,ROCHESTOWN, and MIDLETON”
Mind you I counted 6 shops with Job Vacancies in the windows
Review of the recent IAVI production of 'A Mid-Summer-Night’s Dream.
'A splendid evening’s entertainment with sound contributions from all concerned.
However Kersten Mehl’s Bottom was as aways greatly admired and stole the evening. We look forward to yet another Bottom from Kersten as the IAVI have promised to reprise the show next year ’
