ACC bank sells within four weeks

ACC bank sells within four weeks

The former ACC bank premises at Main Street, Roscommon, was sold this
week by Carthy and Associates Real Estate Alliance, with the sale being agreed within four weeks of going to the market.

The building was sold for €575,000, €75,000 over the guide price of €500,000. The purchaser was a local professional businessman.

Speaking to Roscommon People, auctioneer Seamus Carthy
of Carthy & Associates REA in Castlerea, said, “I can confirm that we
agreed the sale within four weeks of it going on the market. The
property, without any huge advertising campaign, generated substantial interest and Carthy and Associates conducted in excess of
20 viewings.

“Due to the quality of the building and the attractive guide price of €500,000, over sixteen bids came in on the property. As part of the requirement from ACC Bank, each bid had to confirm that they had funds in place. All interest in the property was local as it preceded any national advertising campaign.

“ACC Bank comprised of a relatively new building measuring 255 sq. metres, over three floors, finished internally and externally to a very high specification. As such from any potential purchaser’s point of view, it was a building that was ready to go with very little outlay to be incurred once purchased.”

The three storey end-of-terrace building with a single storey extension to the rear enjoys a prime location on the Main Street of the county town. Noting that the former bank premises achieved in excess of €100,000 over the guide price, Mr. Carthy said, “If properties are priced correctly, there is substantial interest out there from buyers who have funds in place.”

Carthy and Associates now have a substantial list of people who have expressed interest in quality properties at the right price. These people have funds in place and are actively seeking property opportunities. Seamus Carthy is available in confidence to talk to any parties who wish to sell properties in the currently climate. Good advice and approaching the market correctly is the key to successfully selling property in the current climate. Sellers need quality professional advice and Seamus Carthy is available at (094) 96 25990 (office) or (086) 8035538.

Successful Opening Launch at Hazelwood Celbridge Co.Kildare

Hazelwood Celbridge built by Maplewood developments had a very successful opening launch last Saturday and Sunday. With huge crowds around on both days Coonan Real Estate Alliance reserved 17 houses in total and expect to reserve some more over the next day or two. An estimated 400 people viewed the houses over the weekend.
The three and four bedroom showhouses received great praise for their bright and spacious accommodation including a host of standard features such as solar panels, recessed lights on the ground floor, maintenance free exteriors and front and back gardens. The buyers were very impressed with the standard of finish and the fact that each house comes with a minimum B1 energy rating.
With prices from €265,000 buyers felt they were getting good value considering the three bedroom houses measure 1206 sqft and the four bedroom houses 1550 sqft. The buyers were a mix of young families trading up as well as first time buyers and people trading down.

As Phase 1 is now sold out Coonan Real Estate Alliance are taking reservations on the second Phase.

First National Property Auction Set To Stimulate Market

REA is to host a National Property Auction featuring a wealth of residential, commercial and investment properties from right across the country. The auction, the largest and first of its kind to be held in Ireland, which will feature both residential and commercial lots, will take place in Dublin’s Shelbourne Hotel on Friday 30th April
The auction’s announcement is timely with Real Estate Alliance members having seen positive movement in the market since the turn of the year. The property group believes the formula, having worked particular well in the UK, will act as a positive catalyst to help stimulate the market nationwide.
The April auction will feature a broad mix of both residential and commercial property lots from all sectors of the market but with one thing in common – they will offer excellent value for buyers. The residential opportunities will appeal to first time buyers, those looking to trade up and those looking for renovation projects.
