Athlone property sales double in one year

The property boom seems to be on its way back in Athlone, with the number of properties sold in the last year double that of the previous year. According to the property price register at the end of August, the number of property sales for Athlone has shown a dramatic increase year on year.

Figures garnered from the register by www.advertiser.ie reveal that there has been a significant increase in the number of properties sold.

The register gives the exact selling price of properties and so is the most accurate record of actual sales that have taken place. Some property reports use asking prices as their source, others use prices at which properties were ‘for sale’; neither of these give accurate information which can be relied on.

Number of properties sold in Athlone doubles in one year

According to the Property Price Register at the end of August, the number of property sales for Athlone is showing a dramatic increase year on year. The register gives the exact selling price of properties and so is the most accurate record of actual sales that have taken place. Some property reports use asking prices as their source, others use prices which properties were ‘For sale’ at; neither of these give accurate information which can be relied on. As the property price register is only completed when sales are finalised, it could be argued that it lags real time selling prices by a few months. However, it is still the only definitive register for actual property sales.
