Buy one house and get three for free

Canny house-hunters will be blown away by a bargain property deal on offer in Walkinstown, Dublin, where the price of a single house entitles you to three more for free.

Four semi-detached houses on Greenhills Road are to be auctioned off with a reserve price of €360K for the whole lot.

The neighbouring homes -- numbers 3,5,7, and 9 -- are part of the biggest sell-off of distressed properties to date in the country.

Among the cheapest on offer are the shells of four houses on an estate in Mountrath, Co Laois, with a starting offer of just €40,000 for the lot.

The sale starts at Dublin's Shelbourne Hotel on October 3.
