Beat the recession: get two houses for price of one
THERE was a time when you had to queue around the block to ensure you could buy a house in a new housing estate.
But now you can 'Buy One and Get One Free'.
An estate agent yesterday launched the novel offer on houses in Co Donegal -- with a price tag for both of €100,000.
Two sets of properties went on the market in Letterkenny and Milford at that price with a third set of semi-detached homes being offered for €120,000.
The house at No 28 Coopers Crest in Milford is a three-bedroom semi-detached home with a fitted kitchen, fireplace and a garden.
And anyone prepared to fork out €100,000 for the home will get No 29 absolutely free.
The same deal is on offer for four-bedroom semis No 41 and No 42 Gleann Rua in Letterkenny, with No 37 and No 38 slightly more expensive at €120,000.
Unlike other bargain sales of properties around the country in recent times, this sale comes with a good news story.
Estate agent Brendan McGlynn from donegalproperty.com said: "This isn't a ghost estate sale. In all cases, these are the last properties on these estates and the developer wants to get them sold so that the estates are finished."
