Allsop Space has released property details for their May auction scheduled to take place on Thursday 3rd May in the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin. 106 lots are to be sold and comprise of 42 houses; 38 apartments and 26 commercial lots.  The Dublin / regional breakdown is 39 Dublin and 67 regional lots. A massive 50% of the lots are tenanted and income producing.

Stamp duty in Ireland is currently at 1% on properties up to €1 million (£882,000) and 2% for more expensive properties and values have been estimated to have fallen by 68% from the peak. Worldwide interest in the catalogue is expected particularly from Asia and the UK. International buyers seeking investment opportunities and holiday homes are anticipated to be bidding on the day.

The March auction saw a success rate of 95% realising €12.7 million with a Donegal hotel having been a key focus of interest having sold for just €650K.

These multi lot auction sales are the first of their kind in Ireland, with an overall success rate of 93% and with existing legislation still preventing transparency in the property market, they are a proven method of sale. With each catalogue produced increasing numbers of private sellers are opting to sell through auction. The process allows global exposure and competitive and transparent bidding realising the real value of property on the day.

Robert Hoban, Director of Auctions of Allsop Space “This auction will have a broad appeal to a mix of buyers, ranging from owner occupiers to investors, and young professionals to ‘trader-downers’. We think it is a hugely positive sign to see such a large increase in the number of non-distressed private sellers entering the auction, and availing of the open marketplace. Once again, we expect to see healthy interest from overseas, as in previous auctions.”
