Long time lurker utterly disillusioned with the English housing market (so never bought). We’re now expecting our first and thinking of putting down some roots in NI.

Likely that at least one of us will continue to need to spend time in England for work, so been looking at what’s in and around Belfast and are quite taken with Moira. Nice town with choice of restaurants, integrated schools and good access to Belfast Int as well as easy commuting into the city and even Dublin isn’t too bad.

I’ve been struck by the amount of house building going on at the moment aimed at the mid to lower end of the market (smart 3 bed semis) which is presumably a symptom of cheap money but will probably suit our needs for a few years and we can finance without mortgage.

As I’m less familar with this part of the world I’d be really keen to hear any views on Moira.  Also, any tips on dealing agents to ensure we don’t overpay.  Aware NI doesn’t have the same transparency as in England and understand a slightly different approach to making an offer.

With New-build the price is just the price. It's not like England with a headline price and then a 'real price'. As for second hand houses just be prepared to have to bid on a few to get one. lets the agents see you have a price you wont go over.
