Demand for properties continues across Ireland

Online auction service Iamsold is expecting current high levels of demand for properties to continue throughout the summer months.

Last week Iamsold, which is used by over 300 auctioneers across the country, enjoyed a flurry of sales via the online binding bids platform, and is now taking entries for upcoming auction dates starting on 21 July.

Company director Patrick Folan said: “We are continuing to experience a busy marketplace with active buyers across all property types. We are also seeing an uplift on stock coming to market month on month which is welcomed after a period of low stock levels coming to the market. The Iamsold platform offers auctioneers and their clients the option of binding bids and we are seeing an increasing number of vendors opting for this route.”
