O’Donnellan & Joyce will place 13 properties under the hammer tomorrow in the Victoria Hotel from 3pm.
O’Donnellan & Joyce has created a niche market in the disposal of properties by public auction. According to Colm O’Donnellan of O’Donnellan & Joyce the advantage from a seller’s point of view is that all buyers must be organised and will either be cash buyers or have loans confirmed prior to the auction. Once the auction hammer falls the sale is concluded and the contracts are duly signed and are totally unconditional. All buyers must be organised prior to attending the auction.
A substantial number of the purchasers are cash buyers but in the recent auctions finance has been provided by a number of the major banking institutions and the Ulster Bank and Bank of Ireland have set up stands outside the auction room in order to provide finance for suitable interested clients. The auction room is normally made up of owner occupiers seeking to purchase but in recent auctions a number of investors are starting to enter to acquire residential investments.
The following properties will go under the hammer tomorrow.
