The Start-up Scene in County Wexford

March 23, 2018 #
The Hatch Lab, Gorey

The start-up scene across County Wexford right now is impressive. So, not only do we have the most hours of sunshine per year here in the ‘Sunny South East’, we are also gaining a reputation for innovation amongst business start-ups in the region.

No fewer than five start-ups secured a high level of investment from Enterprise Ireland over the past 18 months and among them were four high potential start-ups companies (HPSUs). In case you are unaware, High Potential Start-Ups (HPSUs) are start-up businesses with the potential to create at least 10 jobs and €1million in sales within three to four years of starting up. The investment and obvious belief in these start-ups from the South East Region is a strong indicator of the entrepreneurial activity in the region and it promises to get even better.

Of course, Wexford has a vibrant tech start-up scene with companies such as SONRU and SCURRI originating in the county. Furthermore, these Wexford based companies have significantly expanded both nationally and internationally in recent years. Datapac is based in Wexford too and it is Ireland’s largest native ICT solutions and services provider. The company recently became a HP Platinum Partner for Printing and Computing in Ireland, which is the highest level of HP Partner accreditation, proving that business is booming in Wexford and this is heartening. However, it isn’t just big tech companies that are recognising the benefits of Wexford and all that it offers…

Co-working is growing in popularity and it is another fantastic option available in Wexford for remote workers or freelancers. The area offers ample opportunities in starting at business and though some small business owners prefer to work from home, many are seeing the advantages of co-working.  While starting a business in the home seems appealing to start ups initially, the remoteness and distraction or isolations soon pushes people to look for a space outside the home.  The trouble is that these can be expensive but, across County Wexford, but particularly in Gorey, we are actively building communities of people who work together and build relationships with like-minded people, thanks to the team at The Hatch Lab. It can be fundamentally beneficial to businesses too, as many choose to collaborate, share ideas and support one another while socialising too. It is growing in popularity throughout Ireland and this is indicative of a larger global trend.

The South East Region is already home to approximately 70 foreign-owned multinational companies therefore, Wexford is attractively positioned to support further growth in the shape of tech start-ups. It is fair to say that the area offers a competitive platform across commercial property, salary, rates and the cost of living when compared to Dublin or regional cities. Tech companies are choosing smaller locations as these companies understand that not every professional wants to live in the city either. Wexford offers a more affordable cost of living and this alone is a winning formula for attracting companies, employers and of course, employees to the area. It helps that we are close to the beach and have a host of walking trails and leisure facilities on our doorstep, offering the ultimate work/life balance!

Statistically, property is at least 30% less expensive than in Dublin or indeed, some of the bigger commuter-belt counties. Skilled workers are looking for more options and turning to smaller, less populated counties in order to settle down and raise their families. Raising a family in Wexford is a dream with its many schools, family friendly activities and numerous schools. It also benefits from being within 50 minutes to an hour of Dublin’s M50.

It is great to see the area being recognised for creativity and innovation amongst a new generation of start-ups.  Certainly, as a region, we are proud to showcase the local benefits for new potential businesses and residents. The future is looking bright for County Wexford!

Growing Demand for Executive/Luxury Homes in the South East

September 29, 2017 #

 

Second-hand homes are in demand

There are certainly more buyers looking towards the Arklow, Carnew and Gorey areas this autumn and these buyers are coming with greater budgets than we have seen over the past eight years; however, there is an ever-growing storage of high-quality, second-hand homes coming to the market right across the South East.  There are many possible reasons for this, like a lack of confidence in the higher-end of the property market locally or perhaps a lack of suitable properties for home–owners to move to, whether their intention is to trade up or to scale down.  Arguably, it is easier for those hoping to scale down as new developments tend to provider smaller units and a mix of houses and apartments.  So what is holding these potential sellers back?

Window of opportunity

There is a good window of opportunity right now for existing home-owners who might be thinking of selling over the next few years to bring their homes to the market before any significant volume of new developments are completed.  Also, in terms of delivery of new homes, what we are seeing in South Wicklow and North Wexford is that the first tranche of new developments are very much geared towards first-time buyers.  Home owners locally who are  looking to trade up are much more likely to choose an existing or second-hand family home.  Of course, this will not always be the case.  Over the next five years as we see first-time buyer and investor demand being satisfied, developers will start to develop larger, more executive-type homes for growing families to trade up into.  But for now, owners of larger homes within the commuter belt, which includes Gorey and much of north County Wexford, will find a cohort of ready buyers for their properties, provided these properties are well-presented and priced appropriately.

Rising property prices across the South East

Many local home-owners are not aware that property prices in Wexford increased at  rates of 11% – 13% over the past year, which is almost double the average increases seen nationally over the same period.

If you fall into this category and you want some initial advice or guidance about the current value of your home, contact myself, Michael, here at Kinsella Estates.  I can help you with more than the valuation by giving you some tips on minor work that could be carried out to improve your home in a way that adds value (multiple times the cost of the work).  Also, the team here are noticing a reduction in the time properties close to town are taking to sell, with some homes selling in less than three to four weeks.  Of course this depends entirely on having the right buyer finance-ready but it is something that we can discuss with you and prepare you for.

Holiday homes

It’s worth noting that this also applies to holiday homes that owners might have been holding onto for a few years longer than intended, waiting for the market to recover.  Earlier this year we saw a stunning holiday home at Roney Beach make over half a million euro, which was €100,000 in excess of the guide price.  This shows the gulf between the busyness of the market sub-€250,000 and the buyers waiting for an opportunity at the higher end of the market.  Certainly, it is a smaller and less active market but the advantage of a smaller market is that the buyers are known to our offices and this allows for direct contact to speed up the initial sales period.
