I would be looking for a house in and around Dublin or in some of the commuter towns. Should I be putting all savings into house?. I was looking at spending around 250 - 400k. The problem is there isn't really suitable houses for single people. Also is it a risky time to buy? Right now my money isnt doing much work for me as I have been lazy and there is not much options.
