We were delighted with the recent successful sale of Ballymotey More, County Wexford, by online auction, powered by Offr achieving over double the asking price. The property was a derelict cottage on land extending to 4.42 acres. Bidding started at 3pm with an opening bid of €80,000 and concluded at 4pm with a total of 25 registered bidders and 71 bids in total. It had a reserve price of €80,000 with bidding finishing at €170,500 which resulted in a sale price of €90,500 over the AMV.


Commenting on the sale, Declan O’Leary, Managing Director of Sherry FitzGerald O’Leary Kinsella

Having 25 registered bidders showed that the market is still in a great place currently even in lockdown 3.0 and the price achieved was exceptional, showing that land prices are still as strong as ever.
