This Month’s Best Property Bargains – October 2018

Posted: by October 22nd, 2018

Who doesn’t love a bargain? Whether it’s an outfit in the sale, a buy-one-get-one-free in Tesco or a good deal on a holiday, there’s a certain thrill to saving cash or making your money go that little bit further.

When it comes to house hunting, it’s ALL about getting more bang for your buck. But property bargains aren’t all that easy to spot – especially when you’re new to the property market, unsure of the average house prices or not clued up on what adds or detracts from the value of a home.

So if you’re on the lookout for a sweet deal, take a look through our pick of this month’s homes that are excellent value for money. Make sure you act fast though – these tend to get snapped up in a heartbeat.

1. THE CORNCRAKE, BURR POINT COVE, Ballyhalbert – Price £169,950

Mortgage repayments – £607.94*

Not only does this property look great, with the stylish exposed brick and open plan kitchen, but it’s in a great location too, being close to the water.

2. 244 ORBY DRIVE, Castlereagh Road, Belfast – Offers around £195,000

Mortgage repayments – £684.83*

An ideal family home, this property has three great size bedrooms and it’s in a hotspot in East Belfast, close to schools, cafes, shops and restaurants. Best of all – it has a cracking home gym that you could use as a home office, games room or bar if the treadmill doesn’t appeal to you.

3. 1 SPIRES MANOR, Magherafelt – Offers over £146,500

Mortgage repayments – £516.19*

A modern semi-detached home within the Spires Manor development on the edge of Magherafelt. It has a range of sleek features, such as floor to ceiling windows and a woodburning stove.

4. 42 BROOKVALE AVENUE, North Belfast – Offers around £194,950

Mortgage repayments – £684.62*

It’s not often that we come across a five bedroom Belfast home at this kind of price. Especially not when it looks like this, with a supremely modern, renovated, extended kitchen that has underfloor heating.

5. 101 SAINTFIELD ROAD, Belfast – Asking price £179,950

Mortgage repayments – £633.21*

This Belfast home has been totally refurbished into a contemporary gem with a neutral grey and white colour scheme that would allow you to turn it into a beautiful home of your own.

6. 65 SLAUGHTMANUS ROAD,Cross, Derry / Londonderry – Offers around £225,000

Mortgage repayments – £785.60*

7. 114 REGENCY PARK, Newtownards – Asking price £225,000

Mortgage repayments – £785.60*

Again, this home isn’t the cheapest on the list but when you take a look inside, the value for money becomes immediately clear. Constructed just three years ago, it has four bedrooms, a sunroom extension with a woodburning stove and a glamorous luxury feel. It’s also in a very handy location, close to a number of schools, shops and recreational facilities.
