And what about when you do eventually manage to get the details of a couple of suitable looking properties for sale in Cork (going by the agent’s details at least!) – which haven’t also gone `Sale Agreed’ almost as soon as you hear about them – you set off to the viewings in excited anticipation of at last finding your `dream home’ only to be bitterly disappointed when you discover that they are either located miles from anywhere (shops, buses, trains, schools, etc.) next door to a smelly pig farm or are slap-bang in the middle of a busy through-road!
Not to mention the sheer waste of your precious time, effort and money criss-crossing the county (or even the oceans if you’re still living abroad whilst looking at suitable houses for sale in Cork!
From the `wild and wooly’ areas of Bantry & Glengarriff in West Cork, south east to the vibrant towns of Kinsale estate agents burnley Clonakilty or heading north to Cork City itself, Blarney and Mallow, Cork is a very large county with an abundance of differing styles as well as prices of property to view.
With so much physical ground to cover, where you might easily have to drive for 2-3 hours between viewings, what a relief it would be if you could instead instruct independent house hunters to do the whole property searching and buying process on your behalf.
Appointing a reliable, independent firm of house hunters to act on your behalf will take all the `drudge’ out of doing the rounds of estate agents/auctioneers and/or searching the property website portals into the wee small hours in the hope of unearthing that `property jewel’ before anybody else finds it.
By appointing an independent house hunter to act on your behalf – who has also experienced the house-buying process in Ireland themselves – will pay huge dividends down the road as they will be best placed to save you time and money when negotiating the best possible price for your dream home.
Again, because of the wide diversity of property types, sizes and locations, etc. in Cork, asking prices for properties can vary enormously. From the dizzy heights of several million euro for the larger detached houses in and around the Kinsale & Cork City areas to the more modestly priced country cottages around Glangariff, Garrettstown and Skibbereen – with prices reducing accordingly for smaller, semi-detached and terraced properties more often found in the larger urbanisations such as Carrigaline, Douglas, Wilton and Middleton.
