Property agent Des O'Malley says there is strong interest in the �3m Ballyneale house in Ballingarry, which is a 'stunning house' and likely to sell soon
NEARLY €32m in house sales were made in Limerick in the last two months of the year, according to the most recent figures filed with the Property Price Register.

NEARLY €32m in house sales were made in Limerick in the last two months of the year, according to the most recent figures filed with the Property Price Register.

In all, 1,436 property transactions across Limerick city and county were completed last year, making it the most successful year for property sales in the past five years. House sales in Limerick increased by 60% last year in comparison to 2013.

In the last two months of the year, 249 houses sold in the county - which are listed in full below, amounting to some €31,740,000.

The most expensive property to change hands in recent months was Derk House in Pallasgreen for €900,000 (not the house pictured above), which is set on up to 400 acres of land. However, the transaction does not include the sale of land, if it was sold at all.

Local sources who spoke to the Limerick Leader were mystified as to the identity of the new owner, but property sources said they believe it may have been an internal transaction with a family or amongst business associates, as the property did not come to the open market.

Asked about the historic property, one auctioneer said “well, the price is certainly historic!”

It is believed that the property was owned by a property developer, now based in London.

Other expensive properties to sell last month were Belcarra on the North Circular Road in the city for €418,000, while Cooga in Doon sold for €424,000 in November.

Nearly 1,500 properties sold in Limerick in 2014, in comparison to 910 in 2013, 836 in 2012, 725 in 2011, and 755 in 2010.

In Clare, nearly 900 houses sold last year.

The property website Daft.ie is currently listing just over 2,000 homes for sale across Limerick. Across the whole county, just 30 on their site are valued at more than €500,000.

There are still are number of mega mansions on the market - with some awaiting a new owner for more than a year - with price-tags ranging from €1.5m for a property on the North Circular Road, to €3m for the seven-bedroom Ballyneale house in Ballingarry.

In the city there are currently just 10 houses valued in excess of €400,000, while 317 homes are priced under €300,000, and the majority of those - some 247 - are priced under €175,000.

Des O’Malley, of Sherry Fitzgerald, said while the property market was picking up again this week, there is a lack of properties coming to the market from the North Circular Road, Ennis Road, and Adare, which are among the most sought after areas.

Auctioneer Pat Kearney of Rooney’s said the property market has become quite active again, “certainly more positive and hopeful than they have been for a long time”.
