There is quite a renewal of interest in the property market here in Castleisland at present. Excitement has been mounting amongst first-time buyers since Stuart Auctioneers announced in Wednesday’s property section of The Kerryman that they were about to release eight more houses this weekend in Cahereen Heights.
The houses will be sold on a first come basis and the gathering at the site of the houses this evening bears this out.
I’m not sure if Castleisland witnessed people camping out in anticipation of such a sale during the height of what has become known as the Property Bubble. But they sure as hell are now.
Buyers and their representatives are sitting in for a long night’s wait for the sale of the houses at what used to be known as ‘The Piggery Road’ at 9am tomorrow morning.
Parents are sitting in for children hoping to get their feet firmly on the property ladder on the estate which has just had three quarters of a million euro spent in a rejuvenation scheme which went on from December to May.
The estate came to the attention of the nation and well beyond last November when waste water tanks collapsed on the extensive, roadside green. It was this incident which triggered the raft of work which resulted in the estate getting a complete overhaul including: new footpaths; street lighting and sewage system.
The fact that there’s a demand for houses in Castleisland is being widely welcomed. The fact that they’re in an affordable price range broadens that band even more.
