    Am I mad?

    Its worth remembering the UK has pretty much the smallest houses in the western world and getting smaller. The average house size has been shrinking for years.

    North Coast apartment boom!

    Its reminds me of the student accommodation and hotel room boom of the city. The developers will chase whatever borrowed money is available to keep the books ticking over and banking the profits. They don't care if it's market madness. The cash has proved even if they go bust, they can keep the family silver, rename and trade again in a few years. There's always going to be some mug bank willing to pony up some dough.

    Cant compare some shacks over donegal road with everything built now. I'd rather live in a 1970 semi than one of the 950 sq foot slave boxes built now. But oh look it has an ensuite.

    I doubt many people with a second home in portrush would chance Anjuna or the UAI. You're the exception. Everyone I know with a second home there considers dundalk too foreign.

    Each to their own BB. I think it's a toss up between the port and Bangor on which is NI's Blackpool. Its seen better days and is now pitching itself as a boomers retirement home.

    All pitched at boomers. Never got the retire to portrush thing. I personally think it's all a bit tacky. You'd be mad to buy there with a mortgage so I expect the majority are cash buyers. Only someone from NI with a parochial attitude would want to live there as a holiday home. The worlds a big place. 450k is a lot of travel. To actual nice places. But I suppose they are too "foreign".

    Ireland Redux

    This. It's the same attitude in the North. Massive increases relative to earnings since the cash, but commenters says it's still not bubbling prices. Well guess what. The bubble was insane now the prices rises now are mental.

    He's perhaps referring to the gap in prices between 3 bed semi and 4 bed detached in smaller in the burbs. In bt9 it could be 3 times the price.

    Well done selling to rent. I've been contemplating the very thing for about a year now.

    Its usually cheaper than that. Must be one of the bigger ones.

    I thought it was 2001. You can tell the mcginnis ones. They are identical to the laurel hill ones they built in four winds. I wouldn't live in one if you paid me.

    I don't think any of the mcginnis developments have aged well. Maybe malone square. Let's hope the braidwater ones do. Malone meadows has been up for about 16 years. The plots are much larger. The houses are larger and they are probably about half the price on a square foot basis. Apples and oranges.

    Only part of the spec that jumped out at me was the down draft extractor. It was an optional extra. I even put one in my own kitchen. The rest of the spec was ok. Nothing fancy. Certainly not what I would call high.

    Looking at a site plan and being faced the physical reality... phase one does fit in well with the street. They are nicer houses that the later phases. And on much bigger plots. The square is like any other new build estate. That's BT9 in general. I'm literally surrounded by them.
