The Connacht Property Auction is now just four weeks away. The auction will be held on July 4 in the Menlo Park Hotel, Galway. The auction will offer properties from across Connacht, and there is continued demand from buyers for family homes and investments in Leitrim.
Patrick Folan of The Connacht Property Auction said: “Demand for rental properties across Connacht has led to rent price increases of almost 12 per cent year-on-year, with many renters now being pushed to leave the rental market and purchase their own home. Mortgage applications have also increased in the past few years, and with number of buyers still outstripping the number if properties for sale, now is an excellent time to look at selling.”
The auction team at The Connacht Property Auction have also noticed that there is an increase in buyers looking to buy within commuting distance of the main cities and towns in Connacht, where there is often better value to be found. The auction team are encouraging people thinking of selling to contact them about their upcoming auctions. With buyers spread across the province and further, the auction team are confident they can continue to get strong results.
