Arasáin na Mara, Salthill. - SOLD €247,000

More than €3.6 million in sales of residential and commercial properties was achieved at the O’Donnellan & Joyce ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ auction.

A total of 48 properties along the Western seaboard were sold last Friday.

Auctioneer Colm O’Donnellan said residential properties – particularly in Galway City – sold well on the day.

“We were delighted with the tremendous results achieved on the day, particularly throughout Galway City where there were a large number of home buyers and investors bidding intensely in order to acquire properties in the city area.”

More than 500 people attended the auction in the Harbour Hotel in the city.

The highlight of the day was a derelict cottage at Ardfry in Maree, just 5km from Oranmore village. It stands on a 0.8-acre site overlooking Galway Bay.

“The location alone made it the jewel in the auction collection,” said Mr O’Donnellan.

With an Advised Minimum Value of €80,000, three phone bidders and two in-house bidders battled it out to take ownership of what Mr O’Donnellan described as an “excellent development opportunity”. Finally, it was one of the phone bidders who claimed it, with a price tag of €230,000 – almost three times the AMV.

The first property to be auctioned was 15 Arasáin na Mara, Salthill, a 3-bed apartment, which attracted 12 different bidders.  Bidding commenced at €150,000 and increased in increments of €5,000 with bids coming from all over the room. The hammer fell at €247,000, which was €87,000 above the reserve price.

93 Ballinfoyle Park on the Headford Road in Galway. The property opened at €70,000 and attracted five bidders, before eventually selling for €150,000.

Bids opened at €110,000 on a commercial unit in Moycullen with an apartment overhead, which sold for €285,000 – €165,000 over the AMV.

In Mervue, 25 Cardinal Cushing Road went on the market quoting €115,000 and needing a bit of work and it eventually sold for €175,000. 4 Emmet Avenue, a 3 bed mid-terrace home in mint decorative order and ready to walk in to, opened with a bid at €150,000 and sold at €165,000.

Also another opportunity for a first home at 67 Duirling in Roscam quoted €200,000. Bids opened at €180,000 for this attractive 3 bed semi-detached and the hammer dropped at €218,000.

In Knocknacarra, where 39 Portacarron on the Ballymoneen Road – a 4-bed semi with converted attic, sold after auction for €220,000 to excited first-time buyers.

Time and history conferred character on this home

The Hermitage, Ballymoe: on the market with a €425,000 guide price.

The Hermitage at Lisnageeragh, Ballymoe is a property on which time and history has conferred a character that no new property could mirror.

Overlooking 16.3 acres of rolling green fields which are included in the sale, this is indeed a unique house and comes to market with charming well maintained stone buildings. These could provide further family accommodation, holiday rentals or craft studios.

The front hall has a beautiful, curved window and leads to two reception rooms on either side of the house. The sitting room has an open fireplace with a black cast iron surround and wooden floors which gleam from years of care and reflect the light coming from two large windows. To the right-hand side, the dining room also has an attractive bay window and an oil-fired stove and it is indeed the perfect social /entertaining space.

To the rear of the house the kitchen is a classic example of a successful marriage of the old and the new. Bespoke shaker style units combine perfectly with modern recessed lighting, attractive tiling and includes a pantry area to one side. A good-sized bedroom and adjacent bathroom complete the downstairs of the main house.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms one of which has an en suite shower. The main bedroom is a delightful space which leads to another small room, a perfect nursery or walk in wardrobe.

€4.5m worth of property sold during online event

This detached house at Seacrest in Knocknacarra attracted a "staggering" level of interest.

More than €4.5 million worth of sales were recorded at the O’Donnellan & Joyce auction last week, where 350 people had pre-registered to bid on the 40 properties which went under the hammer.

80% of the properties sold during the auction or following negotiations immediately afterwards.

Among the properties sold at the auction were:

106 Seacrest, Knocknacarra, Galway. Guiding at €250,000 due to the extent of renovation and upgrade works required, the auctioneers were staggered at the level of interest in this 4-bed detached house.

Siobhra Hennessy, Senior Auction Co-Ordinator, said: “There is an increasing demand for city centre homes in need of repair. Couples want to put their own stamp on a property and often look for properties similar to this.”

Bidding commenced at €250,000 but quickly rose to over €350,000. After intense bidding from a number of internet and telephone bidders, the sale price of €364,000 was reached and the deal was done.

192 Bohermore, Galway. A 2-bed terraced house which attracted great attention, with many enquiries and bidders pre-registering. The house needs complete restoration and modernisation works but obviously appealed to a wide audience. It guided at €120,000, but sold for €179,000, despite the great amount of work required. Again, this is an example of a near-derelict building that offered great potential.

Two renovated homes and outbuilding on 3.6 acres among auction properties

An Pon Da Rosa, Rossmore, Woodford.

The Connacht Property Auction is now just four weeks away from its first summer auction which will be held on July 1.

The auction will offer properties from across Connacht, and there is continued demand from buyers for family homes and investments in Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Leitrim and Sligo.

Shane May of The Connacht Property Auction said: “Demand for rental properties across Connacht in has led to rent price increases of almost 9% year-on-year, with many renters now been pushed to leave the renting market and purchasing their own home. Mortgage applications have also increased in the past few years and with number of buyers still outstripping the number if properties for sale, now is an excellent time to look at selling.”

The auction team has also noticed an increase in buyers looking to buy in commuter distance of the main cities and towns in Connacht, where there is often better value to be found.

An Pon Da Rosa, Rossmore, Woodford. Offered at bids over €295,000, there are two dwellings for sale in this holding, which is within walkin distance of Rossmore Quay and the majestic Lough Derg.

House 1 is a 4-bed extending to 160 sq m, which is a tastefully renovated stone farmhouse which was extended in 2000.
