This is an ideal time of the year for a look around the country at some of the properties that are on the market in various price ranges. This week we take a glance at holdings for sale and guided between €100,000 and €200,000. This is a random sample but it gives an idea of what one could buy for this kind of money.

We start in Wexford where David Quinn is selling 20ac of forestry land at Glenogue, Gorey for €150,000.

It is unusual to see forestry land for sale in this neck of the woods where ground has commanded premium prices over the years This particular parcel of land is located 3km from Ballyfad village, 8km south of Arklow and 12km north of Gorey.

The property has extensive road frontage on to two local roads and runs at a steady gradient from the public road towards the western boundary. Mr Quinn says the ground generally in this area is free draining and of good quality. The lands in question have been planted to forestry for some time and were re-planted about 15 years ago.


Next we move to Tipperary where GVM's Tom Crosse is handling the sale of a 28ac parcel of land with a farmyard at Knockphelagh, Solohead, Monard on the Limerick/Tipp border.

The property was withdrawn from auction in October where it was guided at €190,000 or over €6,700/ac. It is for sale by private treaty at the original guide price of €190,000.
