Ireland’s complete property service – O’Donnellan & Joyce auctioneers will offer free ‘thinking of selling’ property valuations throughout the month of October to any individuals, families, or businesses who are thinking of offering their property for sale on the open market during the month with the Galway city based auctioneers.
Auctioneer Colm O’Donnellan is renowned for his energetic and enthusiastic methods of commanding the auction room, and with results that speak for themselves, the auction method of sale has led to many happy sellers achieving results higher than their expectations. With an 80 per cent success rate on average throughout 2019 and 2020, the company has sold more than 450 properties by public auction in this period, and while Covid-19 has impacted on many aspects of life, the auction route continues to deliver on these results.
The September auction held by O’Donnellan & Joyce auctioneers was hosted in a different fashion to those held previously. Returning to the landmark venue of the Harbour Hotel in Galway city, the auction team were the only people in attendance. Thanks to their new internet bidding platform that was introduced 12 months ago, the team were able to facilitate internet bidders from around the country and indeed the world, to bid remotely from the comfort of their own homes. In addition to the internet bidding, the room was filled with phone bidders who relayed the auctioneers' bids to their respective phone bidder and visa versa. Proxy bidding services are also available at all the O’Donnellan & Joyce auctions and this service certainly proved valuable for those who could not attend the auction in person and were unable to participate in phone or internet bidding.
The next nationwide property auction is scheduled for Friday October 30 and the catalogue remains open for the addition of properties for sale. To avail of the free ‘thinking of selling’ valuation, simply contact O’Donnellan & Joyce auctioneers on 091 564 212 or email [email protected]. One of the agents will visit your property and advise you on his/her opinion of the value of the property and if you wish to place your property on the market, the team will guide you through the next steps.
When selling by public auction, your property will be intensively marketed for the duration of the auction campaign. Open viewings will be held twice weekly with additional private viewings filling the viewing schedule. The auction team at O’Donnellan & Joyce will keep you updated as to the interest in your property, and they will advise you as to a suitable reserve price. Once the property enters the auction room, the auctioneer will exhaust all bidders to achieve the highest possible price for your property before he drops the hammer and seals the deal.
