A Place by the Sea

We currently have many houses by the sea for sale and to let.  Spectacular views and invigorating sea air are not the only advantages of living by the coast.  We have discovered these amazing health and other benefits too!

If you’ve ever wondered why we always sleep more soundly after spending the day on the beach, it’s because of the sea air. Sea air is charged with healthy negative ions that accelerate our ability to absorb oxygen and help us sleep more soundly.

We all know that staying active is great for physical and mental health alike.  Living along the coast provides easy access to activities such as walking, surfing, swimming, sailing, fishing, kite surfing, kayaking and more.

If you live by the sea, you are more likely to head out for a walk and so you are getting sunlight on your skin.  Sunlight enables the body to make vitamin D, which helps you absorb calcium for stronger bones, as well as working against hypertension and a whole host of other health issues.

The sound of waves alters wave patterns in the brain lulling you into a deeply relaxed state. Relaxing in this way can help rejuvenate the mind and body.

Floating in water means blood is diverted around from our lower limbs and pumped towards our abdominal region – the part of the body near the heart – because we are no longer standing upright. Fresh blood being pumped around the body brings more oxygen to our brain which makes us more alert and active.

Delicious seafood is available in many coastal areas such as Kilmore and we’re lucky to have many seafood restaurant serving local produce.  When you live by the coast, you can enjoy fresh seafood at a restaurant or in your own kitchen.

So for a healthier body and stress free mind, check out these coastal properties for sale – Nemestown Kilmore, 2 Ballygarran Kilmuckridge, Silversands Rosslare Strand; and Seabury Rosslare Strand to let.

On the Move Again – Luxury Family Homes in Wexford

After a long period of reluctance by homeowners to put up the ‘for sale’ sign, there has been a big change.  Homeowners thinking of selling were waiting in hope for an increase in market prices and for buyers to have the confidence to hand over the deposit.  It would appear that the optimum time has arrived.

At Kearney & Co., we have sold several family homes in the second quarter of this year at prices that sellers were very happy to achieve and that buyers were prepared to pay.

This is reflective of trends across the county.  The House Price Report released by today, shows that the average house price in Wexford at the end of Quarter 2 was €155,279.  This is an increase of 13.3% on the same period last year.

So our advice?  Don’t sit on the fence waiting for the optimum time to sell.  The optimum time is now.

Welcome to our 2nd Generation Website!

We have just launched our second generation website in order to enhance the quality and accessibility of our wide range of properties for sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants.

Check out our ‘Property Search’ function which enables you to find the ideal property for you – refine your search by location, property type or price range.

Our website now offers a fully responsive solution for desktops, mobiles and tablets, which means that you can easily browse through our current property listings, regardless of whether you are using a PC, smart-phone or tablet.  The content and images adapt instantly as it recognises the type of device being used.

There was a very real need to have our information easily accessible and mobile friendly for people on-the-go, as people love to ‘window shop’, even for property, on their mobile phones!

We plan to roll out more content and features over the coming month.  Watch this space. . .
