Name: Slipperyslope aged 31…(Long time Lurker)
Location: Dublin (de nortside)
House buying status: Bought a house in 2000 sold it and traded up in 2004 and recently sold that. Cashed in and now renting.
AAM status: Visitor, post the odd time! Totally over-moderated and bit an opressive cliquey bunch.
Timeline for crash. Well we are in the midst of it now! I am enjoying seeing estate agents work hard for their money. Was burned many a time in the past with overheated bids on places that just weren’t worth the money. Expect the market to fall at least 5% more come Spring, dead cat bounce in May and then fall a further 10 in the summer lull.
Where to buy? Near work, dont see the point in travelling hours to get to work! Preferred areas for me would be Drumcondra, Glasnevin and Santry. Raheny, Sutton and Malahide would also be considered. Will be looking for some value in these areas come August!
