Headed by Aaron Kernan since September 2004 our residential department has in recent years successfully adapted to significant market changes, and remains the market leader in the South Armagh area. Our Residential Agency staff are fully trained and well equipped to deal with all types of residential Property, from former Housing Executive homes to Period Residences. Selling your property involves some important decisions about a hugely valuable asset. It also requires a great deal of hard work and organisation, so it really pays to talk to the right people from the outset. As one of the leading estate agents in the north of Ireland, we understand how a vendor can maximise the value of their property and how careful preparation can make the whole process run more smoothly. As members of The Property Ombudsman, we adhere to the industry codes of practice to ensure that your property transaction follows the latest regulations. The below guides contains our ‘Good to know’ tips for a successful sale or purchase. We hope you find them useful.
Valuing Your Property
Our property valuations are always carried out by a senior member of the sales team. They hold a wealth of knowledge about the market, and will be able to show you recent sale prices for comparable properties in your area.
Thinking of Moving
If you are thinking of moving, one of the first things you need to know is the current value of your home.
Therefore Kernan Property Services provide a FREE PROPERTY VALUATION service where we will come to your property at a mutually convenient time and discuss its value and all other aspects of a move.
