Sunday Property Roundup 17th March, 2024

If you missed last week’s round-up, you can catch up here: https://propertydistrict.ie/sunday-roundup/ 

As always, you might let me know if I have missed out on any relevant property news by emailing  carol@propertydistrict.ie.

(Apologies in advance for any typos, it’s difficult to get good help on a Sunday. Also, I use voice to text dictation so just sound out anything that really doesn’t make sense in a strong rural accent and that should help!)

#Property Roundup

Emerging Business Models for Estate Agents

This week on #PropertyRoundup on iPropertyRadio.com, I am joined by Alan McKenna, Director at REA Halnon McKenna. Alan talks through the mechanics of operating two agencies at opposite sides of the country (Dublin and Galway) and we explore his interesting business model of acquiring estate agencies when the owner wishes to retire. If you own your own agency and are thinking about an exit in the coming years, you won’t want to miss this episode!

*Also, the iProperty Radio team, in partnership with Daft.ie, will be travelling across the country in 2024, meeting estate agents and learning about rental and sales trends on the ground. If you would like to get involved in these ‘Property Roundup’ shows, email hello@ipropertyradio.com.

#Proptech Hot Seat

Building an Agritech Ecosystem

In the Proptech Hot Seat on iProperty Radio this week is Padraig Hennessy, Chairperson of AgTech Ireland (https://agtechireland.ie/) and CEO of TERRA NutriTECH (https://lnkd.in/eATrMGx7). Padraig joins us to discuss the importance of a clear pathway to commercialisation and raising the question as to whether a market the size and makeup of Ireland is a good test bed for technology innovators.
