2013-12-13 13:44:29 - The Irish Property Buyers’ Handbook 2014 deals with buying property at an uncertain time, navigating the current economic fallout and understanding the new opportunities in a dramatically changed marketplace. The revised edition includes new strategies for buying in a recovering market where suitable housing stock and access to credit is still restricted.
In this updated and comprehensive guide, prospective buyers will be introduced to new strategies to help source their ideal property at prices well below market value. Property negotiations are covered in three chapters, starting with the powerful strategy of pre-negotiation, moving on to the practical psychology of buying from motivated sellers before looking at how to close the best deal.
In addition, this 2014 handbook updates the market overview regarding volume of transactions and house prices, reflects changes from Budget 2013 and Budget 2014 (mortgage, interest and insurance rates), updates legislation on multi-unit developments (MUD Act) and also includes increased investor information – including finding and retaining suitable tenants.
The most exciting addition to the 2014 handbook is the inclusion of
a self-build section in the book by Derek Trenaman for people who choose to build or renovate (increasingly popular due to a shortage of suitable family homes in many areas).
There is also a chapter, contributed by well-known financial commentator, Karl Deeter, which looks at the issues surrounding securing finance in the current market.
‘The section on finding a site is very detailed and thorough and the key points at the end of all the chapters are extremely helpful.’ SelfBuild & Improve Your Home.
Aimed at first-time buyers and residential investors alike, the Irish Property Buyers’ Handbook 2014 is the essential guide for anyone looking to enter the brave new world of property buying in Ireland.
