Allsop’s final auction of 2016 took place this week with 158 properties sold and total sales of over €28m,’s Martin Clancy reported on Monday.

“The auction was characterised by competitive bidding from investors targeting properties with strong rental income and potential for asset management,” Allsop’s Divisional Director, Jonathan Fenn, said. “A mixed-use investment in Tuam was sold for €1,301,000 after 182 bids, and investors also bid aggressively for a portfolio of eight vacant houses with development land in Garristown, Co. Dublin which saw bidding increments of €50,000 drive the final sale price to €1,275,000.”

“A warehouse in Western Park Industrial Estate, Dublin 12, reached the highest number of bids ever recorded at an Allsop Online Auction – 206 bids over two hours. The property was sold for €484,000, more than doubling the reserve price.”

The highest value was achieved by a mixed-use investment in Tuam comprising 13 ground floor retail units, first floor commercial accommodation, and 20 apartments over the second and third floors.
