Just as the company finished 2014 with the final auction of the year in Ireland, DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard is leading the way again this year with the first of its auctions to be held tomorrow in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Galway, at 3pm.
Now nationally renowned for its innovation and expertise, the St Francis Street based estate agent has seen its auctions going from strength to strength, with the latest event showcasing an eclectic mix of properties to suit buyers from across all spectrums. Having launched the marketing campaign of the 12 lots on offer five weeks ago, tomorrow will see the leading auction expert offer these properties to the floor in what is expected to be a hugely engaging affair.
James Heaslip, who will conduct the auctions, has reported large numbers turning out at open viewings, with interest levels being very high. “As usual with our open viewings we have had a great response from all types of buyers,” he said. “We pride ourselves on always trying to bring a mix of properties, which will invariably suit all types of buyers currently in the market. We keep our lots to a manageable number, therefore we can afford to give a more personal touch to those seeking to buy via auction. This particular auction has something for the commercial investor, the residential investor looking for a buy-to-let, the first time buyer, and those looking to trade up. The new year has seen a whole new batch of buyers coming to the market, with the view that even though 2014 saw large increases in property values across the board, there’s still plenty of value out there.”
As usual, the auctions will be streamed online at www.dnggalway.ie and www.advertiser.ie The team at DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard are expecting a large turnout. “The numbers have been growing at every auction and while most are there hoping to make a purchase, others are there to take in the occasion and enjoy the excitement that only an auction can provide,” Mr Heaslip said.
