The number of residential properties that changed hands in Laois in August and September was down on previous months, but one property did break the €500,000 barrier, making it only the fourth home in the county to do so in 2018.

In total there was 126 sales between the two months – 71 in August and 55 in September – down from 86 in June and 76 in July. The two months also marks a decline on the same two months in 2017, when 180 houses were sold. The figures are taken from the Property Price Register.

Clawhinch House in Rath, near Ballybrittas, sold for €550,000 in September, making it the most expensive property to be sold in the period and only the fourth house to surpass the half million mark this year.

The most expensive property to sell in Laois this year was in Castletown for €590,000 in June  while a property in Mount Henry Drive in Killenard made €510,000 in July and Spire Hill in Portarlington sold for €500,000 in the same month.

Indeed the house in Rath was the only property to exceed €400,000 in the two months – in total 10 homes have been over that figure this year.

A property in Kilminchy in Portlaoise sold for €380,000 in August while one in Foxburrow in Portlaoise made €350,000 in September.

At the other end of the market, a property in Rathdowney sold for €35,000 in September with three properties between €40,000 and €50,000 over the two months.

Since January of this year, 546 residential properties have changed hands, down from 555 over the same nine-month period in 2017. We have been tracking those sales each month.

For the first six months, 2018 had more sales than a year ago but that has since declined in recent months, indicating a bit of a slowdown, something that mirrors what auctioneers locally are experiencing.
