Councils to put houses on open market

DĂșn Laoghaire Rathdown County Council are selling their affordable housing stock on the open market because of a lack of interest among those on their waiting lists.

The one and two-bedroom apartments are located mainly in Stepaside and Sandyford, with a number of others in Dún Laoghaire, Leopardstown and Dundrum. The Council paid €27.5m for the 117 properties.

The asking prices had been reduced by around 20% to €130,000 and €270,000.
