Allsop Space has announced details their final property auction of 2011, which is to feature the largest number of property at auction in Irish History.

The fourth Allsop Space auction of 2011 will feature a massive 112 lots and will take place on Wednesday, 30 November in the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin.

According to Director of Allsop Space, Stephen McCarthy, “The November auction will pave the way for 2012. We plan to feature more lots at each individual auction next year. The figures from our last auction speak for themselves. €10 million was realized. Over 80% of those buying at auction are without bank finance which highlights that there are still plenty of domestic and overseas buyers in a position to invest in property in Ireland.”

Mr McCarthy continues “Interestingly, almost a third of purchasers were owner occupiers, demonstrating that the current market is not just for the investor. These auctions can only help stimulate the market and encourage property transactions again.”

The bumper November auction is to feature a mix of Dublin and countrywide residential and commercial properties – The property mix is likely to appeal to all types of buyer, including first-time buyers, those trading up or down, and investors, both domestic and international.

Gary Murphy, Auctioneer and Director of Allsop Space comments “We believe that large scale public auctions will continue to play an important part in the changing Iandscape of Irish property transactions. “

Mr Murphy continued “The transparency of the method has become widely appreciated since our inaugural sale in April this year. Allsop Space is rapidly establishing a public data bank of real sales evidence. In the absence of a national sales registry, this information is becoming increasingly important to home owners and property professionals. Rental yields can now be usefully calculated using prices paid. For the first time, prospective investors are able to make informed buying decisions and to monitor and assess the relative performance of different properties and alternative asset classes.”
