Huge rise in sec­ond-hand prop­erty sales

Bray People - - NEWS -

THERE HAS BEEN a three­fold in­crease in the num­ber of ‘Sale Agreed’ sec­ond-hand res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties in Le­in­ster in Jan­uary 2010 com­pared to data from the same pe­riod last year.

New data re­leased by My­ Ire­land’s lead­ing prop­erty web­site, shows there has been a con­sis­tent month-on-month in­crease in the amount of Sale Agreed sec­ond-hand res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties since Septem­ber of 2009.

This sup­ports in­di­ca­tors of a pick-up in the res­i­den­tial mar­ket, es­pe­cially since the New Year.

Sale agreed prop­er­ties in Dublin have in­creased by over 300 per cent with 658 prop­er­ties reach­ing sale agreed sta­tus com­pared with just over 200 in the same month last year. The num­ber of sale agreed prop­er­ties in the rest of Le­in­ster, in­clud­ing Wick­low, has also in­creased by a sim­i­lar per­cent­age over the same pe­riod.
