Near lots of services and amenities in Cork city’s Mayfield is 2, St. Joseph’s Park, a mid-terraced three bed with front and back gardens.

A good starter package at the price, it probably needs doing up a bit now, but this can be done in time, suggests auctioneer Terry Hayes of REMAX.

It fits in living room, kitchen, utility, guest WC, and three overhead beds plus main bathroom.

VERDICT: The gardens are a bonus.
