Richard O’Neill, Director at Allsop, commented on the launch of the catalogue: “Our February auction delivered exceptionally high returns for sellers with a success rate of over 90% and sale results running at an average of 53% above reserve prices. With such a heated market appetite in evidence, we’re very pleased to bring this strong catalogue to the market.”
The auction will kick-off with our commercial lots, featuring a wide selection of desirable Dublin investments with a range of lot sizes and income profiles to choose from. Outside the capital there are several exciting opportunities including the Pontoon Bridge Hotel in Mayo and a retail investment in Limerick which is let to Lloyds Pharmacy and generating €80,000 per annum. The residential offering, commencing with Lot 97, features over 130 properties. A three bedroom house in Milltown and a beautifully refurbished cottage in Rialto are some of the highlights but investors will also have a number of residential portfolios with high income streams to consider.”
