The Irish Property Buyers Handbook 2011 is now available to purchase through The Liffey Press and will be available in Irish bookshops by the end of the month.

The Irish property market has changed dramatically over the past decade. Following a historic boom, the property bubble then burst in a frenzy of political upheaval and banking chaos on a national and international scale.
This book deals with buying at an uncertain time, navigating the economic fallout and understanding the new opportunities in a dramatically changed marketplace. In it, prospective property buyers will be introduced to new strategies to help source their ideal property at prices well below market value. Sources of off-market properties will be investigated along with more traditional sources.
Property negotiations are covered in three chapters, explaining the need for strategic research and selection in advance, moving on to the practical psychology of buying from motivated sellers and their agents before looking at final measures to close the best deal.

In addition, this handbook looks at buying a home through auction. Auctions are set to become the reality for residential buyers seeking a bargain in 2011/2012. The first major bank auction in Ireland takes place in the coming months, with NAMA and other mortgage lenders to follow later in the year. This means that homebuyers must understand how to compete in the auction rooms. This handbook walks prospective bidders through the auction process, letting them know how to prepare in advance, what to expect on the day and how to avoid falling prey to dummy bids.
Aimed at first-time buyers, experienced buyers and residential
investors alike, Irish Property Buyer’s Handbook 2011 will be the essential guide for anyone looking to enter the brave new world of property buying in Ireland in 2011.
