Carrick property sells in just 10 days

The 2 bedroom apartment opposite the Courthouse in Carrick-on-Shannon

If you were in any doubt that the property market is well and truly recovering the proof is in the fact that an apartment in Carrick sold in just 10 days.
A well presented and fully furnished 2 bedroom apartment opposite the Courthouse in Carrick-on-Shannon went on the market on September 23 and was sale agreed at top price on October 3.
What is even more telling is the intensity of interest within that period. 15 viewings, 10 bids from five different bidders.
The advised guide price was €79,900. REA Brady, sole agents, felt that the guide was achievable if not conservative. This is a high quality and desirable apartment with two double bedrooms, a great kitchen-dining-living area and uniquely a private back patio with external storage space which enjoys sunshine from mid-morning to sunset.
It is worth mentioning that the vendor had made every attempt to present this property with a modern and tasteful finish that appeals to buyers both owner occupier and investor which widened the target market.
This apartment is being sold fully furnished and ready to go.
12 months ago this type of apartment would have made under €60,000. At the time of going to press offers on this apartment are just below €100,000 which is a 25% increase on the current guide price
Celia Donohoe of REA Brady listed the property with good expectations and aggressive marketing which proved successful.
She is now eager to take on more properties of this type in Carrick-on-Shannon.
She has five under bidders with a desire to acquire a property in Carrick-on-Shannon with funds available and ready to go.
