Tips To Selling Your Property In A Cooling Market

May can be a great time to get your property on the market. With this being said, the market has begun to cool off, with sales prices in Leinster dropping 0.5% in the first quarter of 2023, as per the Daft Sales Price Report.

Choose a solicitor and get a BER certificate for the property.

When you decide you would like to sell, you should immediately contact your solicitor or begin looking for one to use.

At Kearney & Co., we have a very experienced team who all have extensive knowledge of the local area.
