Asking prices jump steeply in desirable areas

THE price of renting a three-bed semi in Galway stands at €805, which is on a par with other big urban centres such as Cork and Limerick.

When buying in what would be deemed a desirable area, the average price of a three-bed semi is €188,500, but this rises significantly in areas such as Salthill where there is very little available for less than €220,000.

Similarly, areas such as Knocknacarra and Newcastle also command prices above the average, but in a university city keen competition from students means that houses close to the city centre are also going to attract investors' attention.
