Today’s auction saw a high quality c. 40 acre roadside holding brought to the market. The property benefits from an excellent location along the main Gorey to Wexford road. Both lots enjoy a natural water supply, while the larger lot also contains a farmyard.

In advance of the auction, the property was guided in the region of €500,000. Auctioneer David Quinn noted that there was plenty of interest in the property with approximately twenty parties registering to bid. This was the first auction QUINN PROPERTY have held in some time where both in person and online bidding were available.

The property was offered in the following Lots:

Lot 1: C. 29.25 Acres with Farmyard
Lot 2: C. 10.5 Acres
Lot 3: The Entire

Lot 1 opened at €250,000 and with fifteen further bids reached €400,000.

Bidding on Lot 2 commenced at €100,000 and gradually rose as far as €140,000.

Lot 3 (The Entire) quickly surpassed the combined €540,000 on offer for Lots 1 and 2. Bidding then continued at pace as far as €610,000 (€15,250 per acre).

Due to the size of the gap between Lots 1 and 2 and The Entire, an opportunity was given for interested parties to improve their bids on the separate lots. However, no further bids were made on Lot 1 and 3. Following this, David Quinn announced a short break to consult with the vendors.

Upon returning, the auctioneer announced that The Entire was now ‘on the marker’ and any further bids would secure the property. Two further bids were made and the hammer fell at €630,000 (€15,750 per acre).
