O’Donnellan & Joyce, which last week announced its Wild Atlantic Way spring property auction for March 3, said there were record numbers of people in attendance at its open viewings on Saturday last, particularly at properties around Galway city.
Mary Fahy of O’Donnellan & Joyce’s auction team, said the team were “inundated with enquiries for all of the 40 properties which will go under the auction hammer” on March 3. There was particularly strong interest from first time buyers who were out in force, along with investors who were looking for centrally located properties. Ms Fahy added: “There is some incredible value on offer in this auction. No 19 Millbrook in Milltown has a price tag of €50,000 and would make a great little starter home. No 2 Abbey Street in Loughrea is a three bed terraced townhouse with an AMV of €90,000, and Galway city centre is offering a three bed terraced townhouse for €200,000 at 17 St Joseph’s Avenue off Henry Street.”
Anne Harding, auction co-ordinator with O’Donnellan & Joyce, commented: “Investors who are always on the lookout for value, have shown a lot of interest in 90 Rockfield Park in Rahoon, Galway, with a price tag of €145,000. This property is currently divided into apartments and is walking distance of NUIG and UHG.” Viewings times have been established and full details are on myhome.ie, daft.ie, and odonnjoyce.com
