36, St. Michael's Park, Portarlington
"Why rent when you can buy this lovely three bed townhouse for €100,000," says Matt Dunne Auctioneer.
36 St. Michael’s Park, Portarlington is a compact three bed two storey house with a small extension and large rear garden. If this was modernised a bit it would fetch €750 per month but if someone got a 90% mortgage, that is €90,000, the repayments would only be about €600 per month.
"The last time I saw this happening was in England in the 1980s. People were so sick of hearing bad stories about friends and family losing money on property that they were scared to take the plunge and buy a house," said Matt Dunne.
Matt Dunne advises any young couple or singles to go to their local bank or credit union (in this case) and get loan approval and then investigate what’s on the market. They will be pleasantly surprised as there still are a lot of repossessed houses coming on the market. Matt describes the market as challenging, and it certainly is a buyer’s opportunity to bag a bargain.
St. Michael’s Park is a mature ex-council estate in a very quiet convenient location, close to the town centre and within walking distance of all amenities such as shops, restaurants, schools, and the train station.
