Listen: 5% Rise In Value Of North Kildare Housing Stock; South Kildare Prices Largely Unchanged.

: 01/19/2020 - 12:34


The value of North Kildare's housing stock is up 5% overall on this time last year.

That's according to the Irish Independent Price Survey.

The staple abode, the average three-bed semi, put on €16,000 to take it to €350,000 while four bed semis rose in value by €17,000 to €382,000.

Prices are largely unchanged in South Kildare on 12 months ago, despite slight undulations up and down between different types.

Four-bed semis actually shed €20,000, taking them down to €265,000, while four-bed detached prices added €40,000, taking them up to €350,000.

There's a big difference in prices depending on location. The two largest towns in this market are Kildare and Newbridge. With 8,600 residents, buyers can expect to pay around €40,000 less for a three-bed semi in Kildare than in nearby Newbridge, with almost 23,000 people.

Mark Keenan, Residential Property Editor with the Irish Independent has this breakdown of the Kildare market, as a whole:
