On the Market Northern Ireland and Isle of Man

Today we take a look at houses for sale at the national average price in Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man and take a look at the cheapest priced options.  There’s also a look at the advantages of living in either Northern Ireland or the Isle of Man.

In August 2021 the national average price increased to £333,371 because house prices actually dropped for larger properties, we have been concentrating our exploration on up to four bedroom.  However, as you will see we have had to select a six bedroom house in County Antrim to get near to the average price.  We also take care to select properties that are rural, semi-rural or edge of town.  Also included is a special property on the market on the Isle of Man.

When buying and selling houses knowing how prices are going and what is available elsewhere is an important part of strategy planning.  When you wonder how much does a house cost in another area or how much houses similar to yours sell for, it’s useful to have an idea about what is on the market and the prices in different locations.  We hope that you also find this information interesting as well as informative.

Northern Ireland

As this snapshot of properties on the market in Northern Ireland shows, property prices remain lower than many other UK locations.  Finding rural or semi-rural property in Northern Ireland is easy too, so much of it is rural and there is a real feeling of the opportunity to just breathe and relax.

Belfast with its international airport, port and attractions is easily accessible and probably the only place you will come across traffic congestion.

Northern Ireland has some wonderful coastline, beaches, lochs and mountains.  Prescriptions are free, the schools are good and they are actively encouraging business there.

Isle of Man
