Galway based property firm IAM-SOLD, which currently operates The Connacht Property Auction and The Munster Property Auction, has announced the launch of a new auction in Leinster, with its first public auction event being held on July 23.
After the successful launch of its auction service in Connacht in 2013 and its subsequent expansion into the Munster market in 2014, the latest auction to be added to the calendar is sure to attract interest from all around the country. The Leinster Property Auction will offer properties from Dublin and all across Leinster while also including properties in Cavan, Monaghan, and Donegal. The company notes it is already receiving significant interest from west of Ireland buyers, in particular for investment properties which it is offering for sale through its Leinster operation.
Galway native and company director Patrick Folan noted: “After a very successful year of auctions in 2014 with an 87 per cent success rate, and a 90 per cent sold rate for the first half of 2015, we felt the time was right to expand to the Leinster market, and we are now selling properties in every county in Ireland. All of the properties we are working on are getting fantastic exposure to the widest possible audience, both nationally in Ireland and we also advertise heavily in the UK. The extra advertising each properties receives ensures we have the best chance of finding buyers and securing the right price for the vendor. And as there are no entry or marketing fees into our auctions, the pressure is always on us to secure a buyer for each property.”
