Time flies, as the saying goes, however this summer truly has flown and it is hard to believe that schoolbags are packed, lunch boxes at the ready, and uniforms are ironed and ready to go. In keeping with these annual rituals, the auction team at DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard have commenced their own ritual and are gearing up for their September auction, which will see the Galway city based firm bring more than 20 properties to the market. Featuring a wide variety of properties ranging from investment opportunities to family homes, this auction sees DNG taking to the road also and incorporates properties all along the western seaboard in Clare, Mayo, and Donegal.
According to James Heaslip, MIPAV, MCEI, director of auctions: “The appetite for buying is still very strong. At the moment, the lack of supply is the issue – not demand. We are seeing huge interest in all types of properties we launch to market. People are eager to become property owners again.
“Our September auction sees a range of properties again coming to market all the way from Clare to Donegal," he added. "The DNG network throughout the country is strong and this allows us to seamlessly bring properties to market anywhere.”
