At an Allsop auction in December, a retail unit at the N5 business park in Castlebar sold for five times its reserve price, while a site at Slievemore in Achill with a reserve of €15,000 went for €18,000.
At the same auction, a bungalow and former pub at Clogher, Claremorris, with a reserve of €20,000 achieved €45,000 at yesterday’s auction.
Allsop director of auctions Robert Hoban advised would-be buyers, sellers and other interested parties to arrive early at the RDS, sayin there was a huge level of interest ahead of the auction.
“Our February auction is one of a series of very successful auctions, the last of which took place in December. The December sale resulted in €24 million in sales from 140 properties, which broke the then Irish record. We look forward to breaking more records this month.”
Mr Hoban re-iterated the Allsop pledge that no repossessed family homes would be sold at any of their auctions.
