Hi all, I hope you can help - we're new to NI and are totally at a loss to figure out where to buy in South Belfast! Our budget is up to GBP 350K and while fortunately we don't need a mortgage we can't make head nor tails of whether an asking price represents fair value. We'd like a traditional red brick townhouse with original features and are happy pay for a fixer upper as long as total costs (including refurb) come within the 350K range. We like urban living and schools are not an issue, but the house needs at least to be able to hold its value reasonably well going forward, and safe enough to walk around at night (as far as cities can be safe). We saw this one advertised but seems expensive and the area appears a bit studenty.
Would really appreciate any advice on areas to focus on, what our budget could get us, and really to stop us from making a silly mistake because of lack of knowledge of Belfast. We ask estate agents but never get a straight answer.
Thanks in advance!
