There is no shortage of that demographic. There are a lot of very wealthy people in Greystones and more moving in there. If you think those prices are insane look at Marina Village prices.

Moved to Greystones last year and working locally. Hoping to buy a 3 bed new build by the end of this year. Any advice ?

I think the first phase of Churchlands is sold out? Would be interested in this development, but concerned about ‘problem’ estate mentioned earlier in this thread? I’m currently living in the Blacklion area, and tbh in comparison to where I’m from in south Wicklow, I have seen little to no anti-social behaviour. From people who have bought off plans, is there a maintenance fee ? And roughly how much extra was it for a south facing garden ?

Right now I feel Waverley and the new SeaGreen houses launched are just out of my price zone 😢 No sign of house prices going down either ..
Especially with Eastmount starting at 485000..

Thanks!

I would touch base with the agent regarding phase 2 as phase 1 is sold out. I would expect a typical price increase for phase 2. The agent should be in a position to give an indication. There is no maintenance fee in Churchlands. South facing I believe was circa 7k-10k additional in phase 1.
Apologies to you on behalf of the idiot that brought up “problem estates”. The person evidently is unfamiliar with the area. There is no area in the country completely segregated from less well off communities. Take one of the most exclusive addresses in Dublin- The Vico Rd in Killiney. This is less then 500 metres away from Ballybrack village which is known for antisocial behaviour.

Just visited the site this evening up at the Phase 2 area near the water. They’re working on a row of 3 bed semi detached houses with sea views and they seem to be flying up! Great progress in the last 7 days since I last visited. Anyone have any idea when we can expect show houses / official launch? Also what’s the craic with Phase one not being completed before they start building Phase two?

Developers want to get the houses built quickly so they can get them sold.

The phases are really just groups that they release houses for sale in. In reality they'll be physically building many phases at the same time.

Do you know what the pricing is for the 4 bed semi-ds in phase 2? Even approx? Found it hard to get an answer out of the agent..

That is because the agent is trying to inflate the price even more but doesn't know how far he can push it. It very difficult to get the balance between outrageous yet achievable and simply unaffordable just right.

Take the price for the previous phase, add 50k and you won't be too far off.

It looks like the global and domestic economies will crash and crash very badly because of COVID19.

What do we think this will mean for the Greystones / Delgany property market? In particular, Churchlands and Eastmount?

In my own view, the Churchlands / Eastmount prices were way overvalued to start and those who bought in the first phase will have overpaid a significant amount when subsequent phases are launched.

Most people are expecting a significant drop in property prices across the country.

Don’t touch any estate or house that has a so called management fee.

Or known social problems in the area.It inly takes ine familly to ruin a street and make your life a nightmare. There are whole threads on it and how the gaurds are powerless.You dont want go be caught in negativd equity in a trap like that.

As for half a mlilion upwards for a semi d in a traffic block in Delgany - are you absolutely insane?

There are very few places with no management fees, especially around Greystones.

Each to their own, but I wonder if all of it will go ahead now that margins will be reduced and many that planned to buy will be forced to reconsider??
