The upcoming O’Donnellan & Joyce auction catalogue has a great selection of properties which would suit first-time buyers.

Auctioneer Colm O’Donnellan said he believes the properties will be particularly attractive to young people who are currently renting.

“There are some fantastic properties on offer both in the city and outside. All properties are priced to sell and there are some in walk-in condition.

“Some of these properties should be of particular interest to first-time buyers who are presently renting and who consider that buying is a better option for them as in many cases the mortgage repayments will be cheaper than the rent they are paying at the moment.

“Also because most of the properties are in turnkey condition, it means that no extra outlay will be needed which is always a bonus to a first-time buyer,” said Mr O’Donnellan.
