if you want to live in a city ,in a certain area ,
you may have no choice, as a first time buyer .
Buy an apartment or buy nothing, houses are going up in price.
my friend bought a 1 bed apartment,
she was happy to live there .
it went up in value before she sold it.
She could have bought a house ,
she choose to buy an apartment .
the management fee,s are 1000 per year .
I would stay away from buildings with lifts they tend to have high
The trend is young people will find it difficult to buy 3 bed house in dublin if they are on the average wage.We are in a housing crisis ,
the time when there are enough house,s in citys for all potential
buyers is long gone.
IF you live in a rural area you may be better off buying a house
if you can afford to do so, versus buying an apartment.
Apartments tend to be close to bus routes and shops .
everyone is different ,
buying a one or 2 bed apartment is a good investment for some people .
