BidX1 have launched their fourth catalogue of the year today, featuring over 200 residential and commercial lots, to go under the virtual hammer on 17th & 18th July. The full catalogue can be viewed here.
Jonathan Fenn, Director at BidX1 and Head of Residential Auctions, commented: “Our latest catalogue launches today, and there’s no sign of the traditional slow-down for the summer months. The online platform means bidders can take part from anywhere in the world so being by the pool in Spain is no barrier to competing for a warehouse in Cork.”
Describing the make-up of the catalogue, Fenn added: “Multi-unit investments look set to be the high achievers across the two days. A portfolio of 12 houses in picturesqueDunmore East, a block of apartments in Midleton and the Royal Apartment Complex in Carlow are among the highlights. Dublin development sites also feature prominently, many of which already carry planning permission for residential units. An attractive red-brick house on Beechwood Avenune in Ranelagh and a four bedroom cottage in a fantastic location overlooking the Liffey at Strawberry Beds are further highlights.”
