The Connacht Property Auction will take place on 26 March in the Clayton Hotel, Galway and the auction firm has confirmed strong interest in the lots on offer.
The auction will offer a large selection of properties offered from around the province including residential homes and investments, commercial properties and agricultural holdings. There are 23 realistically priced lots on offer with the majority expected to sell at the auction.
A charming three-bedroom cottage at Cruck, Balla is being offered at bids over €29, 950 in partnership with DNG Burke Connolly Maloney.
At roughly 900 square foot in size, this cottage is in need of repair and would make an excellent holiday cottage with four traditional fireplaces, high ceilings and many other features you would expect from a cottage of this era.
The property is set back from the road with mature trees to the front and has the added benefit of three stone sheds to the rear. Strong interest is expected with a property so well priced.
A three-bed in Doonaha East, Clare is being offered at bids over €69,000 in partnership with Considine Auctioneers.
Location is everything with this property, set in the tranquil countryside setting of Doonaha just 7 km from Kilkee village and 4.5 km from Carrigaholt. The property boasts views of the river Shannon and Co. Kerry and is located only two minutes’ walk to a sandy Glasheen beach, which was voted in the Top 10 Beaches in Munster by The Irish Examiner.
This spacious three-bed property was constructed in 2006 but has not been fully completed and is just the shell of a house internally. Whilst the property does require work this will allow any potential purchaser to finish the house to their own standard and style. The family who buy this home will benefit from a truly magnificent setting.
Closer to home, Number 56, The Meadows, Ballybrit is being offered at bids over €159, 000. This fine three bedroom semi-detached house is in good condition throughout and is positioned in one of the best locations in the area.
The property would make a fine home in this established family estate and could also offer investment potential with its proximity to the large work force in the area. Strong interest is expected in this property and interested parties should register their interest early.
These properties are being offered through the modern method of auction which is more flexible than tradition auction, meaning even purchasers buying with a mortgage can secure a property through auction.
“We have 23 realistically priced properties available and there is strong interest in the lead up to the auction,” commented Patrick Folan from The Connacht Property Auction. “The key for successful sales is to have the pricing at the right levels to encourage bidding. Buyers are free to bid up to whatever level they are comfortable with and a sale is agreed providing the reserve figure is achieved. This gives a fair result to both the buyer and seller and I’ve no doubt there will be several buyer and sellers who walk away happy on the 26 March.”
The public auction will take place on Wednesday, 26 March in the Clayton Hotel, Ballybrit, Galway at 7pm. Registration begins at 6.30pm. All properties can be viewed on the auction website www.connachtpropertyauction.ie.
