  1. Thanks for your input, I really appreciate it. I think whats making things harder is I have 2 young children and am trying to tick a lot of boxes. Im starting to go of the house to be honest and starting to feel I'm panick buying! I appreciate your help
  2. Sorry, I am grateful for your opinion, just don't know what to do, we need to make a decision sn and are running out of options. I'm not sure about the area thats the problem, I just want reassurance because I like the development itself
  3. We have been looking at properties in the area, and for this size and detached its a reasonable price. Really finding it hard to find this in area we are looking and we are near completion day
  4. I think it will be and there are no more of this house type to be released
  5. There is no rentals in the development at the moment. The is a family/kitchen/dining area at the back which could be split but I like open plan living
  6. Sorry this pic http://www.propertypal.com/the-commons-at-blackrock-newtownabbey/d1258/photo-3
  7. P.s. look at this pic and the very left hand house you will see how it will look http://www.propertypal.com/the-madison-blackrock-hydepark-road-newtownabbey/131374
  8. Its Detached Its similar to this but the front door isnt on the side of the house and the layout inside is slightly different and better http://www.propertypal.com/the-madison-blackrock-hydepark-road-newtownabbey/131374
  9. Hi I have my house sale agreed and have found a really nice new build in Blackrock developement of turnkey finish. The builder is O'Kane Devine http://www.okanedevine.co.uk/newdevelopments.html I would like to know if anyone knows the area/ lives there etc Thanks for your replies in advance
  10. Hi everyone, We sale agreed on our house 2 weeks ago to first time buyers. We are now having a really difficult time finding a house to move to, all the houses we look at our like 20K over rateable value. We have a bit of time because our buyers are co-ownership but starting to feel like we arent going to find something suitable to buy. If we dont find anything should we go ahead and sell and then rent in the hope something comes up Any advice appreciated!
  11. Thank you so much squirl, I think Im putting extra pressure on myself as if I were to go for an extension I need to be on it quick to get planning permission applied for and get the work started quickly, I have heard that planning permission in northern ireland has started a streamlining scheme and that if no one objects planning can be through in 28 days, so i hear.
  12. Yes I am stressed so I have taken your advise and put together a list of pros and cons as below Pros of extension - stay in good desired area, close to family and friends stay close to school good neighbours get a bigger house no hassel of moving ie solicitor fees, worry of sale falling through Can design house the way I want it Cons of extension Living in mess for a while Worrying that the overall project doesnt go over budget Worrying what the exterior of house will look like at the end (matching up old red brick) guess thats one for the architect to work out with me Pros of moving Getting a newer house Bigger house Cons of moving Move to a different area away from friends Further to commut to school and work Further away from schools Stress and cost of moving Have to stop stressing as I really cant get rid of this headache, this is a lovely forum with good advice from all
  13. At the moment to get the size of house we would like in the area and detached we would be adding on another 80k onto our mortgage, we are in a detached at the moment and the 2storey extension we have been quoted would be another 40K My head is so sore thinking about what to do, I have just dropped it 5K and 15K in total from I first put it on the market, but I know its going to do much, not sure what to do now, just so fed up with the whole thing
  14. Yes need more space, I had liked the idea of a newer house as in around 5year old however hubby says you can make an old house feel newer inside with plastered walls etc, I have thought about moving for a long time so its getting my head around staying and extending. We couldnt afford to move to a house in the area with the size of house we would end up with extending, Thanks for all your speedy replies its helpful, Ive had such a headache about what to do
  15. I live in newtownabbey, northern ireland, and I have been looking at our house in relation to other properties that have sold and there is a semi in the same area which sold for 15k lower that my asking price, its same size but ours is detached. I had thought maybe the low amount of viewings was the current market conditions or am I just being completely daft and kidding myself that I will sell my house?
