PROPERTY WATCH: Kildare summer auctions fast approaching

Strong demand for family homes across the province

PROPERTY WATCH: Kildare summer auctions fast approaching

Ballinadrimna, Moyvalley, Co. Kildare

The Leinster Property Auction are continuing to take entries for their upcoming summer auction taking place on June 17 and July 15.

The auctions offer properties from across Leinster where there is continued demand from buyers for family homes, commercial and investment properties, and also land.

Patrick Folan of The Leinster Property Auction commented that “demand for rental properties across Leinster in has led to rent price increases of approximately 6% year-on-year, with many renters now being pushed to leave the renting market and purchasing their own home. Mortgage applications have also increased in the past few years with the latest figures from Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) reporting that the number of mortgages approved rose by 98.3% on same period last year, when the country was in the first Covid-19 lockdown.

“Month-on-month mortgage approvals are also continuing to rise by c. 0.9%. With the number of potential buyers still outstripping the number of properties for sale, now is an excellent time to look at selling.”

The auction team at The Leinster Property Auction have also noticed that there is an increase in buyers looking to purchase in commuter areas around the province, where there is often better value to be found. The auction team are encouraging people thinking of selling to contact them about their upcoming auctions. With buyers spread across the province and further, the auction team are confident they can continue to get strong results.
