Strong market continues while stock increases gradually

IAM Sold Property Auctions, which runs the Connacht, Leinster, Munster, and Northern Ireland Property Auction, says it has seen stock levels increase gradually over the past month - up 4.5 per cent from last month but still down 29 per cent on same period last year.

Shane May, sales manager for The Connacht Property Auction, commented: “Since reopening for viewings on May 10, we are seeing extraordinarily strong market conditions with inquiry levels remaining strong - up 95 per cent on levels when compared with last year. With stock still relatively low, there are more buyers looking to secure the available properties which is resulting in strong bidding on majority of the properties we are selling.”

Despite lockdown restrictions for the earlier part of 2021, sales for IAM Sold in May were up 41.6 per cent compared with the same month in 2020, which is up 10 per cent year on year. IAM Sold remains the only auction house in Ireland not to charge an up-front cost to enter a property into auction and is offering free valuations for all vendors considering selling their property.
