We're just waiting for the hammer to fall

Carol Tallon Talking Property: It is becoming clear that auction season is the route of choice not just for commercial properties, but for family homes too.

15th June, 2014
Far from being mysterious, auctions are the most transparent method of sale that we have in Ireland, and all buyers, who have their due diligence done can buy well.

Auction season is well and truly upon us. Although in practice, one of the consequences of a property market in turmoil - either rising or falling - is that seasonality is no longer a significant factor. Whichever way we refer to this prevailing trend of auctions, it is clear that this is the preferred route of sale, not just for commercial properties and receiver properties, but also for many family homes suitable for all home-buyers.
