“THERE’S A HUGE HOUSING shortage in Galway right now, but in the next six months that’s going to change.”

Colm O’Donnellan, of O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers in Galway city centre, is one of the key speakers at the next Home Series Event in Galway, brought to you by in partnership with KBC and 

He has seen up close just how competitive the market is in the “jewel of the West”. But with plenty of new developments in the pipeline, O’Donnellan is confident buyers will be in a more comfortable position by early next year:

There’s lots of growth planned for Knocknacarra and Barna to the west of the city, and Oranmore to the east. The infrastructure in those areas will continue to grow massively too.

So how can new buyers stay one step ahead of everyone else, whether they’re in the market for a new build or a second-hand home?

Make your interest known. If you see planning for a new build, get in touch with the builder or the agent and ask about pre-sales. And even if you see a second-hand home that’s already gone sale agreed, notify the agent of your interest in case the sale falls through for any reason.
