GETTING TO GRIPS with a fast-changing property market is tricky, but we’re here to make things simpler.
Each week, we’ll handpick four homes within a similar budget, to give you a snapshot of the property landscape at a particular price point.
This week, we’re looking at properties in Co Kildare with an asking price of exactly €575,000 – from a modern property in Stephenstown to a family home in Celbridge.
