Local auctioneer says drop in level of houses for sale very noticeable in Kilkenny

A local auctioneer says the drop in properties being advertised for sale has been really noticeable in Kilkenny.

A new report says that since 2010 there’s been a 50 percent decrease in the units advertised

Just 1.1% of all private stock in the country advertised in January of this year was  in Kilkenny  and 1.3% in Carlow.

Peter McCreery of Sherry Fitzgerald McCreery Auctioneers in Kilkenny told KCLR news they’re not just anonymous figures saying he has noticed the drop.

He said they have a lot of potential buyers on their system but just don’t have the housing stock for them.
