Our agent, Aaron Kernan, also act for buyers. He buys properties for both owner occupiers and investors alike. Some of his clients just want help looking for a new home, some want help to evaluate a property and to negotiate the best deal. Aaron understands that for many, their home is likely to be their most valuable asset both financially and emotionally. His objective is to make every aspect of the move as straight forward and enjoyable as possible. From the first contact to the day you move home I strive to ensure our customers experience a professional, confident service provided by a motivated and enthusiastic agent.
During his 15 years in the business, Aaron has bought and sold hundreds of properties.
According to Rightmove.co.uk sellers typically accepted around 5% (£11,000) less than their final asking price. Zoopla says that it’s just 3.86% and figures published by Hometrack suggest that the average buyer pays 97% of the asking price.
Northern Ireland's latest house price index published in February 2020 outlines the current average asking price in Northern Ireland to be £140,190. Our own district Newry, Mourne and Down continues to perform above average with an average selling price for the district of £147,794, a 4.3% increase on the 12 months previous.

Buying & Selling Advice
Up to 100,000 people buy a home every month. 90% of those who are selling get advice from an estate agent but most buyers think they can do it all themselves. Of course not everyone thinks they can afford or justify a bespoke buying service but now you can get help from my new Pocket Agent service. Help for anyone looking to transfer their pension pot or to buy or sell, to rent or let all for £500 plus VAT.
Customised Buying Service
We look for homes (and other assets) and seek to acquire them on behalf of our clients. As far as the law is concerned, I am an estate agent – In this instance, we act for buyers, not sellers. Some clients just want help looking for a new home, some want help to evaluate a property and to negotiate the best deal. Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you have to make in life, and it really is worth putting in the effort to make sure you get it right. Too many people make mistakes in buying homes, which can affect your well-being, be a major hassle - and be very expensive.
Of course many people start off asking too much for their home and a third of sellers currently on the market have reduced their guide price at least once according to the website Zoopla.co.uk. My most recent purchase was a substantial detached house in Newry, marketed at £295,000 (bought for a client in January 2020 for £220,000 - a 25% saving).
