Waterford City and County has a particular advantage with our home rental and purchase prices considerably lower than the other city gateways. By comparison, house prices are 65% lower in Waterford than Dublin, and there is a wide range of commercial property options, as well as design and build spaces, available here.
Waterford’s lower prices offer prospective buyers more value for money. Buyers can often ‘trade-up’ when purchasing homes here, as they have greater purchasing power.
Rent prices are lower by 52% and availability of high quality housing stock is meeting demand. Planning permissions are at advanced stages in 4 areas to deliver an additional 1,760 housing units in Waterford City and Ferrybank by 2023.
The rental market in Waterford is set to be ignited with these new developments, part of the ambitious plans to grow the City.
Older parts of the City offer great value, while being only minutes from the City Centre, while the suburbs like leafy Dunmore Road, Cork Road and Carrickpherish offer contemporary homes in newly developed surroundings. The Ferrybank area is also set to be transformed with the North Quays Strategic Development Zone- which will comprise new retail, hotel, residential units and also a new Transport Hub. Waterford Greenway will also link up with the Wexford Greenway, and this route will pass through the heart of the Ferrybank area.
Waterford County also offers unique property opportunities, where there is plenty of opportunity to develop your own home. Areas like Dungarvan, the Copper Coast and the Blackwater Valley are seeing growth in numbers of professionals wishing to relocate to these great places. In Waterford you can have a world-class career while having a home only minutes from the beach.
