9 times out of 10, it is Sherry Fitz who have higher-end stock rotting on the Dublin market at over inflated prices (and even, in the case of 7 Temple Gardens, resorting to the false PPR entries of 5 Temple Gardens as pricing justification thepropertypin.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=65965), and is why the institutional funds usually shy away from using them, however, in the case of Horizons, it is the complete opposite.

This will be the final chapter for the current askings of nearby high-end Howth houses:
3.5m Pine Lodge thepropertypin.com/viewtopic.php?t=64519&p=830663, not worth even 2.5m.
3.5m Bramley Hill thepropertypin.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=64518, would struggle at 2.5m.
2.8m Windgate thepropertypin.com/viewtopic.php?t=60767&p=730182, down from 4m and heading for 2.5m.
1.5m Cova thepropertypin.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=65902, worth closer to 1.2m.
1.95m Shielmartin thepropertypin.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=65835, worth closer to 1.5m.

… Perhaps even Sherry have realised that they don’t get paid until there is a sale.

So WIW - It would appear that there is a glut of houses for sale around Howth. Is this just a different strategy to get the price up. Although it is strange that none of them are shifting as it is a nice area. Looking at the list you put up, they appear to be nice houses but not amazing. Still I would have thought that they are not totally over priced. At least not as much as the 30 to 40% that you are pricing.

Windgates is already down 30% (and falling).
This is Howth, not Dalkey.
Lovely situation and aspect, but much lower density of rich people.
And therefore much lower pricing.

Horizons could make the +2m mark, if the house appeals.

If there are issues with house (that is a huge and old flat roof), then maybe just asking.

Interesting. Still its a lot of house for that money…It will be interesting to see…I can only dream
