The Cork Housing Market Discussion Thread


Agreed, main road would be the biggie if it was me. €350k is a lot of money for that house without the possible structural stuff to cover.


I would find it very difficult to believe that this wasn’t flooded in the big floods of '09, considering the adjacent gym was totally destroyed. Often said that this was a once in a lifetime flood, but you would have to be happy with that risk. Great location though.


This is sale agreed at €355k, 40 over asking for a complete fixer upper.

#224 … ?orderBy=4

Sold per PPR for €665k - €120k over asking!


I’d say that’s drumming up interest?


You can’t even give away houses in some parts of Cork these days, it seems… … 36241.html

Just had a look on the PPR for houses sold in Cork Jan-June 2015

Blackrock: 28 less 14 actually in Mahon: 14
Ballintemple: 5
Ballinlough: 10

The complete lack of supply continues the high demand in these areas with prices rising accordingly


Whatever about what is going on in Dublin - cork has seen over 25% increases in properties in the ballinlough, ballintemple and douglas areas compared to this time last year.

The shack in beaumount I mentioned earlier in the thread was bidding at over €420k when the last house had sold for €350k. Crazy stuff going on.


Nice area 4 bed with “potential” but a bit of a strip and rip I’d have thought at 495k … rk/3118447


Interesting given that 2 Bishopscourt Road went for 430 at the height of things last December. … nd-142961/


2 Bishopscourt is a bigger house though, and has a huge garden.Its too close to the Bishopstown road for me, and 430e is a lot of money even for that. It is currently being ripped and stripped. If 23 gets 495e I will be shocked…but I’ve been shocked before :smiley:


So you think Cork peaked last December? I wouldn’t have thought so


From what I saw, last December most of the houses we’d looked at in the previous six months that hadn’t sold already went sale agreed in quite a short space of time. In quite a few cases for more than the asking. 2 Bishopscourt Road had been on the market for a reasonable length of time and both times I saw it the asking was 375, 20 below the 395 asking so my impression is that bidding took off quite late in November / December. So, not calling a peak but anecdotally prices appeared to have a definite momentum that, based purely on personal experience I’ve not seen since.


What’s wrong with this? … k/1069513/

Seems to be around 150k lower than some of the 4-beds mentioned above.


Probably a bit of Cork Snobbery, Glasheen is a nice area and I for one would have no problem living there, but Bishopstown because of its closer proximity to the CUH, CIT and at a stretch UCC seems to carry a price tag.Traditionally it was more white collar or in my youth anyway. Be interested to hear others views


Probably more a 4 bed than a 5 and I think its been for sale for a while 24 Stratton Pines, Bishopstown, Co Cork

€260,000 - Asking Price For Sale by Private Treaty125 sqm approx … iew=photos

#237 … enDocument

5 Belmont Park went for the asking, 300K

Entered as Gaeilge for some reason.


It’s been ridiculously quiet last few months. Zero supply


Been awhile since I looked at this thread, still lots of heat in the usual spots in the cork market - the last few 3 beds in Beaumount ballintemple have all gone for north of €400k as complete fixer uppers.

Hard to believe what has happened in the last two years really.


I’ve heard anecdotally that there was a flurry of purchases over July/August and that prices bumped up. I haven’t seen any firm evidence of this though.
