SOLD JULY 2021 – Charming C. 19 Acre Holding With Derelict Farmhouse For Sale By On-Line Auction Wednesday 7th July At 3pm (In One Or Two Lots)
Wednesday’s auction saw some excellent quality land being brought to the market along with a farmyard and a derelict farmhouse. The land is currently in tillage and would be suitable for a variety of agricultural uses. Prior to auction, there was good levels of interest with 10 parties registering to bid. The property was guided at €210,000 (c. €11,000 per acre) by auctioneer David Quinn.
The property was offered in the following lots:
Lot 1: Derelict Farmhouse & Yard on C. 0.5 Acres
Lot 2: C. 18.5 Acres
Lot 3: The Entire
Bidding on Lot 1 began at €20,000 and rose as far as €41,000 in the first round. Lot 2 opened at €150,000 and with four more bids it reached €185,000. Lot 3 (the entire) was then offered to the market with a price in excess of €226,000 required to trump the existing bids on Lot 1 and 2. A bid of €236,000 was quickly made but no further offers were made on Lot 3.
Lot 1 was offered for a final time but no additional bids were received. However, Lot 2 received a several further bids rising it to €200,000. This brought the total to €241,000 and meant that the current bid of the entire would need to be increased if the property was to be secured in one lot.
A further offer of €246,000 was promptly placed on Lot 3 and after receiving instructions to proceed with the sale entire there was strong activity from several bidders. In total, ten more bids were made and the hammer fell at €266,000. This represented a strong price of €14,000 per acre.
David Quinn was pleased after securing another great result at auction. He noted that the auction “had attracted a number of motivated bidders and that this bodes well for our schedule of upcoming sales.”
