The stagnant nature of the residential market is also hitting sales of residential farms.

The auction of a 40ac residential farm at Summerhill, Gorraun, Roscrea, Co Tipperary is typical of what is happening; the property, which came with a guide of €500,000, was withdrawn from auction at €400,000 and is under negotiation.

Owned by a part-time farmer, the holding has benefitted from considerable investment in recent years.

It comprises a refurbished, three-bedroom farmhouse, a modern farmyard that includes a shed with slats and cubicles, a cattle holding pen and crush, along with two stables and a range of stone outbuildings.


The sale was well attended and opened at €300,000.

With two bidders showing interest, the price climbed to €380,000.

After a further €20,000 was bid, the property was withdrawn at €400,000.
