O’Donnellan & Joyce’s final nationwide property auction of 2019 takes places tomorrow, December 13, at 12 noon in the Harbour Hotel, Galway. With more than 30 properties going under the hammer in this ‘must sell’ Nationwide Property Auction, the popular auction house is offering value and variety in its December auction catalogue. A number of properties are being offered with reduced reserve prices as vendors wish to complete their sales this side of the Christmas period – good news for intending purchasers.
From apartments in the city centre to superb family homes on both sides of Galway, no budget or requirement has been overlooked by auctioneer Colm O’Donnellan. “We are delighted to offer over 30 properties for sale with a wonderful variety of apartments, detached, and semidetached homes in Galway city and county and indeed nationwide," he said. "Given this quiet time of year in the property market, we are delighted to offer such a diverse catalogue and this really does give any prospective buyer a superb chance to acquire great value on the day with many properties being offered at substantially reduced reserve prices.”
If you would like to purchase a property by public auction, you are reminded to complete your own due diligence on each property prior to auction day. A copy of the contract of sale can be obtained from selling agent O’Donnellan & Joyce. Simply contact a member of the auction team on 091 564 212 to request same. Furthermore, a suitably qualified engineer or quantity surveyor should be employed to carry out a survey on the property and you should satisfy yourself with any queries in relation to the property title or deeds prior to the auction. If you are successful in the auction room, you will be required to pay 10 per cent of the advised minimum value (AMV ) of the property and sign the contracts before you leave the hotel. Remember, the auction gavel striking the podium is a sign of a legally binding agreement so be sure to have your finances in place prior to bidding.
Finally, if you are thinking of buying or selling a property by public auction, why not pop down to the O’Donnellan & Joyce nationwide property auction tomorrow in the Harbour Hotel to see how the process works. Registration opens from 11am and the auction will kick off at 12 noon.
