Increase in residential property sales in October following September slow-down

SHARE

After a slow-down in September, residential presidential sales picked up again in October with 83 properties changing hands making it the second busiest month of the year after June.

Only 55 properties sold in Laois in September which marked a third month in a row of decline. The increase in sales in October means that 2018 is almost identical when you compare the first ten months of the year.

A total of 629 properties have sold this year, in comparison to 631 over the same period in 2017. Last year saw the highest number of houses sold in Laois since the Property Price Register started recording the sales in 2010 – 781 transactions, one more than it was in 2016.

There were 667 sales in 2015 and 657 in 2014. In 2010, there was just 331 sales in the entire year, the lowest year to date.

While the largest recorded sale in October was for €1.25 million – that was for an estate of 18 houses in Borris-in-Ossory that sold at a BidX1 auction in July.

The 83 sales make it the busiest October since the records started. There were 76 sales in the same month last year and 68 the year before. The lowest recorded sales in October was back in 2011 when there were just 24 sales.

After that the most expensive individual house sale recorded in the month was for €440,000 for a home on Stradbally Road in Portlaoise. The next most expensive were a property on the Killeshin Road in Graiguecullen which sold for €320,000 and in Springfield in Ballyfin for the same price.

Nine houses in Corrig Glen in Portarlington were sold for €171,000 each while at the other end of the market a dilapidated property in Knock, outside Roscrea, sold for €20,000.
