The Connacht Property Auction held its latest public auction on Thursday July 5 in The Menlo Park Hotel, Galway. A good range of family homes, agricultural lands, builder’s projects, and sites were offered for sale from around the province.
Brian Christy, sales manager of The Connacht Property Auction, noted: “The success of our auctions is down to the extensive marketing campaign we undertake in Ireland and abroad in the lead up to the auction while also working in close partnership with our network of 50 local partner estate agents from throughout the province.
"This combination of both access to the local buying pool and the broader reach of the auction ensures we have the best chance of finding buyers for all properties we offer for sale. We are also the only auction company in Ireland who do not have any entry or marketing fees to enter a property into auction, so the pressure is on us to ensure we get results for our clients.”
Back to July 5, when the auction team sold a two bed semidetached bungalow in Ballybane, Galway, in partnership with RE/MAX Property Experts Galway. The property was an excellent opportunity for first time buyers, families, or investors and received strong interest from local buyers in the lead up to the auction and sold for €100,000.
Another popular lot in advance of the auction was a beautiful four bed detached house in turnkey condition, located in Connemara and brought to market in partnership with Matt O’Sullivan estate agent. Beal an Daingean attracted strong interest from both the Irish and UK markets and was successfully sold for €245,000.
In partnership with Tim Quinn & Co auctioneers the auction team offered to the market a charming six bed property in Bangor Erris, Mayo.
