Creamery Buildings, Castletownroche is being offered at bids over €90,000.

Exciting online auction next month

A diverse range of properties will go under the digital hammer next month when one of the country's top online bidding and auction platforms hold its next event.

iamsold, whose platform is used by over 300 auctioneers across Ireland, will host its next online auction on 12 October.

Speaking ahead of the big day, iamsold Director, Patrick Convey, said the upcoming auction will have “something for everybody” including residential homes, commercial properties, renovation projects and sites.

“We encourage interested buyers to reach out to our auction team as soon as possible, as some vendors may consider accepting pre-auction bids,” said Mr Convey.

He continued: “In addition to dealing with local buyers, we have seen a large number of buyers from around Ireland and also further afield in the UK, Europe, and USA. Many of these buyers know they can acquire a property faster through the iamsold platform.

“The iamsold platform takes around four to five months off the overall transaction time when compared to the normal sales process and this is attractive to many vendors and buyers as well. Sales on the platform that take place in the next month will all be likely to be closed before Christmas whereas sales via the private treaty process will all likely close into next year, so there is a big difference in the timeframes.”
