Great location makes No 112 Elm Park ideal for those who want to update property
First-time buyers prepared to roll up their sleeves will do well at 112 Elm Park, off Sarsfield’s Road in Wilton — it’s got a price tag of €109,000, and even that seems negotiable.
Once, the better of these handily-located Cork suburban homes were making €330k, but this guide price of just one-third of that reflects changed times — and the fact it needs updating, say selling agents Cahalane Skuse. There’s a very good national school nearby, as well as shops, services and a bus route, and if investors are tempted to buy they can sell on free of capital gains tax over the next seven years, adds Peter Skuse. No 112 has connecting living room and kitchen/dining, and side access to a back garden.
VERDICT: Cheaper than renting.
