IAM Sold Property Auctions, which runs The Connacht, Leinster, Munster, and Northern Ireland Property Auctions, has a number of upcoming online auctions, with the next Connacht Property Auction taking place on April 29. The company says its online auctions have been in high demand over the past few months, and offer buyers and sellers the chance to transact their properties without any need for the travel and interactions needed with other sale processes.

Sales manager Shane May commented: “While current restrictions are preventing the industry from working to full capacity, we have seen a significant increase in the inquiry levels on this time last year prior to the pandemic. The first quarter of 2021 has been busy, both in terms of sales and inquiries, despite available properties being at their lowest level in over 10 years.”

Mr May continued: “Once lockdown restrictions were lifted last year, the pent-up demand was very evident with a surge of sales and closing from June to December. We are confident that this will again be the case once restrictions ease, and with low stock and high demand, it is surprising good time for property owners to sell their properties.”

The Connacht Property Auction is the only auction company which does not charge any up front costs to enter a property into auction and with buyers spread across the province, the auction team are confident they can continue to get strong results.
