The Connacht Property Auction is now taking entries for its first public auction of the year which will be held on February 20 in The Menlo Park Hotel, Galway. The auction group, which includes The Connacht Property Auction, The Munster Property Auction, and The Leinster Property Auction, sold more than 220 properties last year, remaining the second largest auction company in Ireland. The auction events averaged a success rate for the year of 96 per cent sold, which was also the highest success rate in Ireland for 2017, and the auction team are confident that success will continue into 2018.
Sales manager, Brian Christy, noted: “A key element to the success of The Connacht Property Auction is the partnership with local estate agents across Connacht who work together with the auction team to ensure we gain maximum interest in the properties we offer. Working in close partnership with over 40 established auctioneers, we ensure the properties we offer are advertised and promoted in all the right papers, websites, and property portals.”
One of the main advantages of selling through The Connacht Property Auction is it offers both online and public auctions. Mr Christy said: “With the online auctions, we arrange with buyers as normal to inspect the property and, if interested, they can put a bid forward at any stage during the 45 day online auction period. All bids are made visible on the online auction website, making the process completely transparent. It is important that buyers register their interest early to avoid disappointment, as the vendor can decide to accept a bid at any stage during the auction period if they are happy with the level of the bid. Buyers are furnished with the sales pack and given an opportunity to carry out a survey if required. We also hold frequent public auction events which are held in The Menlo Park Hotel, Galway. The upcoming public auction events are on February 20 and April 24.”
The Connacht Property Auction is now inviting property owners who are looking to sell their property without any upfront costs to contact the auction team. Before any property comes to the market, the auction team will agree a minimum reserve figure — giving the property owner total control over their minimum walkaway figure. Bidding can also continue past the reserve price until the highest bidder has secured the property. The company is the only auction provider in Ireland which does not charge admission or marketing fees to enter its auctions, making its auctions a very appealing way for property owners to sell their properties.
The next public auction will take place on February 20 in the The Menlo Park Hotel, Galway. Registration starts at 6.30pm.
