Big demand for city rental accommodation but it is not all a bed of roses for landlords

Fri, Jan 24, 2014

There has been a noticeable increase in demand for rental properties in Galway of late, compounded by additional property buyers being held back by restrictive bank lending, increasing employment, and a general increase in population. According to local property letting agents, there has been a ‘surprise spike’ in queries in recent months, and rental properties are being snapped up within days of becoming available, and they expect that rising demand for rental properties will continue for the foreseeable future but caution that it can still be a tough business.

Strong interest expected for upcoming Connacht Property Auction

Fri, Oct 11, 2013

The Connacht Property Auction is now taking entries for the next auction which will be held in the Clayton Hotel on November 14. The auction will offer properties for sale across Connacht and offers homeowners an excellent opportunity to sell their properties in a quick and secure manner. All properties will be marketed extensively throughout Connacht and indeed nationally to generate significant interest on the day. The company is so confident of selling the properties on the day that it does not charge entry fees or marketing costs to enter the auction.

One of the main advantages of selling through the Connacht Property Auction is that it offers two different types of auction. One is the traditional type which is mainly suitable to cash buyers, and the second is the modern method of auction which is more flexible and both cash buyers and mortgage buyers can buy through this method. Patrick Folan from the Connacht Property Auction states,”Traditional auctions are a very quick method of sale but mainly suitable where the purchaser is likely to be buying with cash. However for normal residential properties we would recommend the modern method as it opens up the auction to those buying with cash or with finance. With the modern method of auction we ensure we maximise the interest and bidding in the property and achieve fair market value as a result.”
