TWO houses in the greater Dublin area sold at auction yesterday for more than €900,000 each and well above their guide prices -- one of them made just short of €1m, writes Donal Buckley.
In the much sought-after Burnaby area of Greystones, Co Wicklow, a four-bedroom bungalow, known as Sunnyside, sold for €910,000 or 40pc above its advised minimum value of €650,000. The property also benefited from a-third-of-an-acre site. And in Dublin, a four-bedroom semi-detached house in Glenvar Park, Blackrock, sold for €975,000 -- 8.3pc above its €900,000 guide price.
