Fánán development on the western side of Galway City

Homes are continuing to be “snapped up” by buyers in the new Fánán development on the western side of Galway City

Burkeway Homes have already reported in excess of 30 sales off the plans in the new estate on the Letteragh Road.

Phase 1 quickly sold out when the first houses were released at the end of July.

“Homes continued being snapped up in the intervening period and now the final phase of houses is being made available,” Managing Director Michael Burke said.

“We are delighted with the response Fánán has received since we brought the homes to the market at the end of July. We are very proud of this development and know the purchasers will be delighted with their new homes.”

In total, there will be 101 units provided to the undersupplied Galway market when the scheme is fully complete, comprising of 46 three and four-bedroom houses and 55 one, two and three-bedroom high-end apartments.

Construction is well advanced on the housing element of the scheme that incorporates the initial phases of development.

Fánán is 2.5km from the city centre and close to NUI Galway, University Hospital Galway and amenities such as Salthill Promenade and Galway Golf Club.

Developed on an elevated site facing south and east looking towards the city and Salthill, the Gaelic name Fánán broadly means ‘sloping hillside’. The name captures the features and essence of this location.

Houses selling faster as more working from home

Estate agent Kevin Burke: increased demand for properties with a home office.

The average time taken to sell a house in Galway has fallen by three weeks in the past three months, a national property survey has found.

The REA Average House Price Survey found that the average time taken to sell across the county fell over the past three months from 11 weeks to eight in the city, and 13 weeks to 10 in the county.

As people move to incorporate new working from home lifestyles, the price of the average three-bed semi-detached house rose by 0.5% in the city to €285,000 this quarter and remained at €165,000 in the county.

“The market is strong with good demand for all properties. Activity levels have increased throughout the summer, and rural properties within commuting distance of Galway are in good demand,” said Kevin Burke of REA McGreal Burke, which has offices in Galway City and Loughrea.

“Even though the levels of supply remained static, demand has increased for all properties with a home office or home office possibility such as a large garage, garden or attic which is suitable for conversion.

“Properties on the edge of the city have also proved popular, and everyone seems to have taken time to assess their current position.”
