Estate agents say they find there is a real appetite in the UK for Irish properties
Irish estate agents DNG Nationwide, will be marketing thousands of Irish properties to potential UK buyers at four roadshow events between 5-12 March.
A team of DNG estate agents, drawn from the more than 70 branches across Ireland, will host the four one day exhibitions which will display properties ranging from second hand family homes in in the main cities to a wide range of new home developments, rural cottages, development sites, public houses, retail units, townhouses, and pied-àterres.
They will tell visitors and potential buyers that the current Irish property market offers real value for UK investors as well as emigrants here looking to return home.
Tony Forte of DNG Nationwide said: “Market conditions favor buyers and investors and we believe that our property tour will reflect the value out there.
“There is a real appetite for Irish properties in the UK prompting us to bring this property showcase to London in response to this demand.”
Michael Glynn, DNG Nationwide Managing Partner said: “We are also the first Irish property network to take the property tour to different major venues hoping to attract strong Welsh, Scottish, English and Irish interest.
“It is important from the Irish property vendor’s point of view as we hope to gain maximum selling exposure for their properties.
“We believe that the Glasgow/Cardiff/Manchester and London public will come out in force to meet us and to view the properties on display.”
