One of the dozens of so-called ‘ghost estates’ around the economically struggling Ireland, a vacant property of 14 homes in Co Kerry, can be yours for only $62,000. Other distressed properties around the country will be auctioned off by Allsop Space next month.
The Independent reports on the giveaway prices for some of the housing properties around Ireland. The 14 house estate in Annagh Banks in Castlemaine, Co Kerry will be auctioned off by Allsop Space with an asking price just over $62,000.
It will be the first time that Allsop Space will include a full ghost estate as one lot at auction.
The estate will be sold as a package, leaving it up to the buyer to not only divide up the houses, but to finish them as well. At present, they are only shells of houses waiting to be finished.
For a price similar to the 14 house estate in Co Kerry, you can own Whites Castle in Athy, Co Kildare, a 15th century castle in the center of the town.
Other locales around the country are seeing their own rock bottom housing prices as well. In Co Clare at Clancy Mills, Kilrush, a one-bedroom town house boasts a price of just over $25,000.
A two-bedroom bungalow at Sun Street, in Tuam, Co Galway, comes close behind the Clare property with a guide price of just over $31,000.
Allsop Space will be auctioning a total of 90 properties on July 6.
