15 Castleknock Grove, Castleknock, Dublin 15



These are the before and after images of one of our Refurbish for Market projects carrried out in Castleknock, Dublin 15.  This three bedroom semi-detached house was extremely run down and in desperate need of updating.  There was no kitchen and there was an old oil central heating system in place.  A new gas fired central heating system was added to include new radiators, a new kitchen was sourced from Done Deal, new floors were added throughout and a complete general update was given to bring the property up to standard for the market. 


The Advised Market Value of this property before the refurbishment was in the region of €320,000.  After the refurbishment we sold the property for €368,000 after a spend of c. €18,000.  We also received an SSEI Grant for the upgrading of the heating system on behalf of the Vendor.  Really, this refurbishment was the difference between selling and not selling the property, as the works required would have been a huge undertaking for a purchaser.


Take a look at the before & after shots....

I had a house to sell which needed a lot of work. I neither had the time or energy for the job. I heard of Paul Tobin from a colleague who was extremely happy with his service. A few days after he visited the property he got in touch with a current value and a refurbishment plan. He was professional and knowledgeable and knew the market very well, I also got to see before and after shots of his previous work and had the confidence in him to take on the project from start to finish. From design stage, right through to completion he took care of everything and updated me regularly making sure I was informed and happy at each stage. One of the best savings was a kitchen he bought on Done Deal for €800, I had been previously looking at a kitchen cost of €5,000. The market at the time was sluggish and I was worried about attracting a buyer but Paul was confident that with this type of fit out and It would sell fast and for a high price. I was hoping the refurbishment would have taken less time but when we went to market he sold it in a few weeks, well worth the investment. The best description of the overall service was that it was tailored to suit my requirements’ and would not hesitate in recommending Paul Tobin Estate Agents.
