All eyes will be on The Galmont Hotel today as DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard holds its eagerly awaited October auction.
A superb mix of residential, commercial and investment properties come to the auction floor with auction registration open from 2pm and the auction commencing at 3pm sharp.
Heading up the auction team, James Heaslip is excited about this auction.
"We’ve some superb properties on show and our auction team has been working hard to prepare for today. While we are bringing a diverse range of properties to the market and are covering all areas along the west coast, there’s a particular emphasis on the Galway city market with this auction.
"We have quite a number of city centre properties which will appeal to owner-occupiers and would expect that a number of potential buyers will bid on multiple lots with such a selection from which to choose - an investment opportunity in Gleann na Ri, a doer-upper in Salthill, opportunities for first-time buyers in Palmyra Avenue and a family home located on the prestigious St Mary's Road.”
James Heaslip believes there is value at today's auction.
"Every lot is priced keenly and we are expecting a busy afternoon and a lot of satisfied punters. We would urge those who have viewed any of the lots to try to come along. Even if they don’t end up being a successful bidder, there’s always some entertainment on show.”
