Desperate Housesellers

What are they like?

If ever we needed evidence of just how completely property developers have lost the plot, this recent flyer dropped through our letterbox provided it.

More Wisteria Lane than County Laois, these three simmering beauties peddle soft-focus seduction in sharp contrast to the demure housing estate homes that are actually on offer.

Do the sellers really believe that young couples, many of them with babies in tow, are going to fall for this 'sex outside the city' gambit?

It only confirms our impression of the last decade or so that builders simply threw up houses and apartment blocks with no understanding of the people who would eventually live in them.

Build it and they will come? Somehow, I don't think so.

Crikey, that first model is a bit dodgy as well!

They obviously have no idea - what a daft leaflet and a good wsate of money. They would have been better of putting the money in the credit union. Developers need to go out and learn that the market and buyer have changed.
