Lots of choice for first-timers at upcoming homes sale




131 Dun na Mara Drive, Renmore.

The upcoming O’Donnellan & Joyce auction catalogue has a great selection of properties which would suit first-time buyers.

Auctioneer Colm O’Donnellan said he believes the properties will be particularly attractive to young people who are currently renting.

“There are some fantastic properties on offer both in the city and outside. All properties are priced to sell and there are some in walk-in condition.

“Some of these properties should be of particular interest to first-time buyers who are presently renting and who consider that buying is a better option for them as in many cases the mortgage repayments will be cheaper than the rent they are paying at the moment.

“Also because most of the properties are in turnkey condition, it means that no extra outlay will be needed which is always a bonus to a first-time buyer,” said Mr O’Donnellan.

26 Eden Park, Loughrea is an owner-occupied home and is one of the most elegant residences to come to the market for some time. Eden Park is a small development of only 45 homes that are built around a large green space.

It is considered a sought-after location to live in Loughrea due to its convenience to all amenities, the community that has evolved there and the strong and active residents’ association. This is a superb family home, in excellent condition with a fabulous rear garden that comes to the market with a very attractive price tag.

It is presented in walk-in condition and coming complete with carpets, curtains, blinds, light fittings and a range of superior quality appliances. It enjoys large gardens to the front and rear that are professionally designed and meticulously maintained. The AMV is €135,000. Open viewings on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 2pm to 3pm.

212 Lurgan Park, Renmore. Renmore has long been regarded as a wonderful place to live and rear a family. It is renowned for its large green spaces and many notable schools and in essence, has all amenities of offer in terms of leisure and education.

This is a lovely three-bed semi-detached property located in a well-established and mature development. It is a very well kept family home and is presented in very good condition.

The estate is located just off the roundabout at GMIT and is proving to be very popular because of its close location to the college, Merlin Park and the Bons Secours hospitals, as many who are employed in those establishments live there.
