    I have been hearing about affordable homes in cork and recently saw a banner on blarney street. Is it real and is there a way to apply for one? I searched on cork co co sites but could not get info.

    In fairness, that's for the Semi-Ds in Ballinglanna. The 4 bed detached are 500k and above depending on size.
    Yes the 4 bed detached are hovering around 480k & 500k in ballinglana, not sure if they still have LIHAF grant of 20k.

    A friend recently purchased a new 4 bed detached in whites cross for 440k. A bit steep price IMO. He got 400k mortgage approved, so he is happy.

    Probably the lotabeg development, I'd imagine the 223k price for a 3 bed is pie in the sky stuff now

    And if the current market is anything to go by, it will sell for another 30 or 40k above that.

    Wow! Pretty sure that house has been up for a good while too. Since January at least.


  • Registered Users Posts: 378 ✭✭ newuser99999


    435k is a shocking price for that. So outdated looking. You’d need 100k to bring it up to date.

    Is moving to cork considered foreign travel if your living in galway?

    Yes it is in coppenger fields. I felt price is steep but it appears house is slightly bigger at 166 m2 and since its a corner detached unit, he was ok to pay that kind of money.
    340k for 4 bed sounds reasonable to me in today's scenario.

    I find The Examiner are great at making the market even more frenzied with their articles online and in print sensationalising ever property.

    JCD 25 storey apartment block scrapped at Albert Quay. Rents of €2.8k required to make it viable which is a 50%+ premium on the Elysian.

    It speaks volumes that level of rent is required to make this viable. You can find apartments in more luxurious towers than this twice the height in other western cities for much less than that.

    Something has got to chance in this city or we'll be looking at offices or derelict sites for the forseeable.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,690 ✭✭✭ Lia_lia


    Okay this is probably the most ridiculous I’ve seen. Over half a million for a 3 bed D rated bungalow on the the Model Farm Road. Paying for the location but come on!

    Lunacy. The garden and driveway are in a bad state and need serious money. Inside needs a massive revamp too. And what's going on with that sliding door in one of the pictures? It seems to immediately lead into a wall with another door.

    So they knocked the Sextant for nothing - just like Camden Palace and Sample Studios. And the brewery (so far at least).

    Agreed!!

    I’ll also ever understand the attraction to having a small bar counter in your house to be honest. Looks more awkward than anything!

    I sometimes like them but this one is very bulky and squashed in to that room.

    Photo selection is pretty dire, didn't clearly show any bedrooms.

    Very interested in this. It's about 500m from the main road and 10 mins from ballincolig. Massive garden.

    In Google maps it literally backs into the N22. I'd say the traffic noise would be horrendous.

    Been on the market at least a few years, must be some issues other than the road.

    Plenty has been built on that site.

    True, but not the main thing they were supposed to build on that site.

    Only a fifth of an acre, that's very small for a countryside house.
