Starter home: South Douglas Road, Cork €95,000

It’s no longer quite a snip, but there’s good interest in this former hair-salon, in Cork’s suburban Douglas.

New to market with a guide of €95,000, it’s had quick viewings with agent James Crowley, with offers topping €70,000 for this 450 sq ft detached roadside pad.

It’s largely open plan right now, with about 350 sq ft at the core, and there’s a 65 sq ft kitchenette behind in a part lean-to add-on. Behind is a garden area on a size e on par with the house’s living space.

VERDICT: Turn-key, with a change of locks.
