Today With Sean O Rourke Thursday 3 April 2014
Buying a House
As the property market heats up once more, not only in Dublin - last week it was reported that a mini boom was being experienced across the country with an average annual price increase of 6.2% nationwide – that’s according to the Real Estate Alliance, there are signs that it is becoming a sellers' market.
So what does this mean for buyers?
Sean was joined by one such prospective buyer Aidan O’Hara; by Karl Deeter of Irish Mortgage Brokers and by Philip Farrell, CEO of Real Estate Alliance.
In a discussion about Debt Relief on yesterday’s programme, the subject of Credit Unions came up.
While talking about a Central Bank scheme to restructure people’s debt, David Hall of the Irish Mortgage Holders Organisation said he wasn’t surprised that the Credit Unions weren’t co-operating.
Kieron Brennan, Chief Executive of the Irish League of Credit Unions, was with Sean this morning.
