Kildare Property Watch: Working from home changes property demand

The cottage for sale in Moyvalley

Auction specialists Iamsold have noted one of the busiest starts to the year for some time. The company currently have over 130 properties listed for sale nationwide. With the traditional spring/summer selling season in sight, the company are encouraging property owners thinking of selling to get in touch and speak to one of their auction consultants about the benefits of auction.

Company director Patrick Folan noted “as the majority of our properties are owned by private vendors, we understand that is it important that our clients get the best advice and achieve full market value for their properties. Our online bidding and auction platform provides a faster sales process for both sellers and buyers. The property legal pack is prepared by the vendor’s solicitor and is uploaded to our website for review by interested parties and their solicitors. This ensures they are happy with all legal aspects before bidding and contracts are then signed immediately on acceptance of a bid.”

Iamsold work in partnership with over 300 auctioneers nationwide and can arrange for free property valuations alongside the local auctioneers they work with.

They are also the only auction company in Ireland who do not charge any upfront costs into their auctions while still undertaking a marketing campaign on each property.

Mr Folan added: “over the past two years we have seen a change within the property market, with more people than ever now working remotely. We have seen a significant increase in demand for larger houses with space to work from home and demand for country house has also jumped. We have a large database of buyers ready to purchase, and we are encouraging anyone thinking of selling to contact us today.”
