Laois properties on the books of National Assets Management Agency (NAMA) are featured on the internet as part of a ramped-up effort to off-load property seized from developers.
NAMA has revamped its website as the state agency strives to speed up bargain deals and instead of just featuring a list of properties with little or no detail, it boasts a more user-friendly catalogue enabling property hunters to search the site by county and property type.
Many of the properties, where the receiver has got as far as appointing an agent to market the asset, have sales brochures attached with prices, photographs and full particulars of sale, including contact details for sales agents.
There are several Laois properties listed on the NAMA website as being for sale including some residential units and the golf course / clubhouse at The Heritage, Killenard (with brochure/price on application/agent Hume Auctioneers).
And units at four different Portlaoise locations – industrial units at Kea Lew Business Park (with brochure / price on application / agent Hume Auctioneers), mixed use units at Kilminchy Neighbourhood Centre (no brochure), retail units at Main Street (no brochure) and an office unit at Clonminam Business Park (with brochure / price on application / agent DNG Cowen Kelly).
There is residential property for sale at Dublin Road, Portlaoise (with brochure/Killeshin Bungalow €95,000 / agent DNG Cowen Kelly), Mount Henry, Killenard and Fine Manor, Bank Place, Portlaoise (both with brochure / price on application / agent Hume Auctioneers).
And at Radharc na Sleibhte, Shannon Road, Mountrath (with brochure / 3-bed semi from €95,000 up to €139,000 for 4-bed detached / agent Kane Whelan auctioneers).
There is land for sale at Mountmellick Road, Portlaoise (with brochure / 41 acres price on application / agent DTZ Sherry Fitzgerald) and at Togher Portlaoise (no brochure / agent CBRE) and Higgs Lane, Dublin Road, Portlaoise (no brochure / agent Savills).
There is a public house at Killenard (agent Hume Auctioneers) and a creche unit at Annacotty, Laois (agent Savills) also on the NAMA website but neither is with a brochure attached.
Laois properties in NAMA but not currently for sale also feature on the website including a hotel at Dublin Road, Portlaoise, agricultural land in Ballylinan and units at Ballincollig, Mountmellick.
The website also includes details of properties in Northern Ireland and the UK.
