Hot on the heels of its recent success on the auction floor with its hugely successful April auctions, leading property agent DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard has announced details of its next auction, which will take place on Friday May 30.
The April auction again proved that the Francis Street agents has developed a highly successful strategy in its approach to auctions. “We spend a lot of time in the planning phase whereby the entire auction team is involved,” said company director Fergal Leonard. “We discuss each property at length to make sure we give each property the attention it deserves and ensure we reach the intended target market. Our research prior to launching the auction is extensive, such that we are confident when advising our clients on the AMV [advised minimum value] to set, and on other details such as presentation for open viewings.” Indeed the company’s track record for auction sales is testament to Mr Leonard’s claim, with the April auctions yielding excellent results for the company and its vendors while also displaying the appetite of the public to once again enter the property market.
The May auctions will see a total of 12 lots coming to the auction floor, with properties throughout Galway city and county.
First up is No 218 Castlepark, a two bedroom terraced home in a quiet area of a long established residential development on the east side of Galway city. Overlooking a green area, this property is close to all amenities including business parks, Merlin Park Hospital, and GMIT. In some need of modernisation, this would be an ideal first time buyer’s home. The property measures c520sq ft and enjoys a west facing rear garden and private parking. The property guides an AMV of €50,000. Open viewings will take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 3pm to 4pm.
Lot no 2 is located west of the Corrib in the quiet residential estate of Leitir Burca on the Ballymoneen Road in Knocknacarra. No 16 Leitir Burca is an outstanding detached, four bedroom residence built on an elevated site. Part of an enclave of similar style homes, this spacious property has wonderful views over Galway Bay. In walk-in condition, the house is finished to a very high standard and is ideal for those seeking a turnkey family home in an excellent location. Featuring private parking and a rear garden with raised deck area and cobble locking, this property is well worth a look. The solicitor with carriage of sale is Eoin Armstrong, Hegarty & Armstrong solicitors, Stephens Street, Sligo, and the AMV for this beautiful property is €245,000. Open viewings will take place each Wednesday and Saturday from 3pm to 4pm.
